Highly recommended! Our guide acquainted us with the highlights of central Funchal. His recommendations for further exploring were appreciated.

Kia was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. It was a very interesting tour which we would highly recommend to other travellers to Funchal.

Very nice. Nice young ladies, very friendly, received us wonderfully. Answered all questions in detail. As I said, everything is fine.

We were only 4 people and that was very good. you could understand everything very well. Also the many little insiders. Just perfect.
