What people are saying about Funchal

It was fantastic! The best bit of our holiday it was just wonderful and so glad we got the last night of the lights. Guide made us very welcome and we felt special from start to finish. If you’re coming to the island hire Leonard it’s brilliant. On time, polite, helpful and informative x would give more that 5 stars if I could will do this again!!

We throughly enjoyed our night tour of the Christmas lights around Funchal and got to see places that we would have never walked to, and our driver pointed out places of interest, the car a VW beetle open top was great such a fantastic experience,could recommend to any one wanting to do a night tour of the lights.

Great way to see the Christmas lights, especially if you are limited in how far you can walk. Lovely gentle drive through the city in an open top VW. Great driver and very professional. Well worth doing.

Great experience, Rodolfo was a good driver and guide and we were collected on time and was an enjoyable and memorable evening.

We had not enough of this exciting experience. The teens also loved it.
