Our guide Narciso walked us all morning all over Funchal. We had a lot of historical, economic and heritage information, all in good French. It was a private visit, there were only two of us, my husband and I, which favored an enriching communication. Narciso was not stingy with his time. For all this, we thank him warmly. And we strongly recommend this visit, which allows you to get your bearings before setting off to explore Funchal on your own.

Narciso took much more than the expected time to show us around Funchal and answer all our questions. Much more than a visit, it is an encounter with an authentic inhabitant of Madeira that we experienced. Thank you again for this wonderful walk and all these exchanges
