As the island is very quiet at present I benefited from a one to one guided experience (actually two to one as a trainee was tagging along). That apart, my young female guide was knowledgeable, engaging and very open to my various (sometimes off-topic) questions and filled in the gaps in my limited knowledge if the island and its history most effectively. Always best to take a tour like this to better understand the place you’re visiting, and as a bonus, personal gratuities are politely declined with the suggestion that a donation to support student activities is preferred .
Both student and senior guide were quite passionate on telling the history and the special aspects regarding the city of Funchal. They were well prepared and they guided the tour in a very friendly spirit. I collected a valuable amount of information and now I am able to use this knowledge to appreciate and understand the city while walking around by myself. I really enjoyed the tour!
Absolutely superb experience from start to finish. The Tuk Tuk ride offered us not only a wonderful journey through Funchal but we were offered lots of information to help us make the most of our stay. Such great service, so friendly! An exhilarating and traditional ride that we won't forget.
Easy to find meeting point and very knowledgeable guide! It covered not only the history but also tips on local food and restaurants in the old town area of Funchal. It covers more than 6km of walking in total so wear comfortable shoes!
We had a pleasant informative tour that delved into the back streets of Funchal and highlighted the hidden corners. We enjoyed the historical depth the student had to share and thought it was well worth the time and money. Thank you
