The tour was fantastic. Extremely informative. Each group was selected by language. There were 2 other people in my group and we were led by Sabrin. Sabrin was clearly very knowledgeable and made the whole experience very interesting. Thank you very much Sabrin. Xx

Thank you for the informative tour. Our guide Daniel guided us carefully (I'm over 75) and safely through Funchal. There was neither too little nor too much information, and it was presented in an interesting way.

We learned a lot about Funchal and its history and got to know many interesting and beautiful places.

It was a very pleasant and interesting tour! I can only recommend it!

Max led the tour brilliantly and answered all of our questions.
