Full description

Enjoy this adventurous tour of Monte Village and Funchal with an exhilarating toboggan ride at the end. Admire beautifully decorated streets and visit the Church of Our Lady of the Mount.

Starting at the Old Town, see the “painted doors” throughout the streets of Santa Maria, where numerous doors were painted by different artists giving this street a unique glow. Also, admire the picturesque details of cobblestone floors and the façades of the old houses on Rue de Santa Maria.

Next, continue towards Monte and visit the Church of Our Lady of the Mount. The structure that is visible today for all its visitors was completed back in 1818 and is one of the most sought sites by churchgoers and tourists in general.

After visiting Monte, dare to ride some toboggans, more commonly known as “Carreiros do Monte." Toboggan riding was traditionally a means of transportation by locals who wanted to travel quickly from Monte´s village to Funchal. This adventurous and old-fashioned transportation appeared around the 1850s and is still in use today.

The tour was very interesting to get a first overview of Funchal. The driver pointed out some things worth visiting on the way to Monte which made it easy to find again. The pickup after the ride with the toboggan (not included in the price!) worked just as well as the pickup at the hotel.

We had such a lovely time with Andrea and Luis. They were very accommodating and took us through the best sites. Both very knowledgeable and the information they provided us with was very interesting. We would recommend this as a must if you are visiting Madeira!
