not worth this tour

I do not recommend it at all, very boring and nothing to do for what you pay is better to be that day for Funchal and make a good meal, not only but banana and a sugar cane factory, wasted time, I do not recommend it and above where they appear to eat very expensive, 2 basic soups with a small tuna salad and a small bottle of water € 15.20. horrible

December 14, 2019

Not the best day a lot of fog, mist and rain marred the day and views. Guide diogo tried his best but no where near as good as marco ive had previously. Only minimal info given , not interested to stop along the way to let group take photos unless it was a viewpoint, whereas marco was constantly pointing stuff out so we could take pics. Minibus was old and tatty, not so comfortable.
