Great ride out on the catamaran. The dolphins were shy that day but we still go to see them, saw a beautiful mummy and baby spotted dolphin swimming next to each other as well. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff with good English. They told us about the dolphins and history of the coast of the island. Pointed out interesting sights along the way. And even suggested a nice place for dinner when I asked.
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!
Brilliant tour guide; friendly, helpful, full of knowledge about the island, able to answer all my questions! Brilliant view from the mountains And nice walk at the top. However, as an off roading experience I was slightly underwhelmed. If your seeking an adrenaline rush perhaps quad bikes are more for you!
I ordered my tickets online, which was a quick and easy process. We had to wear masks on board which is to be expected in the current situation. It took us some time to find the dolphins but it was worth the wait! A pod of about 40 spotted dolphins, which was wonderful to see and experience their company.
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!
