We had a really interesting guided tour in the old town of Funchal. We would highly recommend it. We actually booked the tour “Wine and Sugar”. Apparently we were just put together with the other leadership. Not a problem for us, but still not right.

We had a super relaxed afternoon with Francessca, in which we learned a lot of interesting facts about the economy, agriculture and culture of Funchal.

good information from very friendly and enthusiastic student.

Very interesting tour by Polish student, who had a good knowledge of the subject and who also clearly enjoyed seeing tourists from different countries.

Helen was brilliant.

Helen led us (couple with baby) through zur Streets of Funchal for 2 hrs and it never got boring.

Superb guide with great knowledge of the historical events in madeira/ Funchal
