Funchal is fantastic! Really loved our day here. You must take the cable car to the top. The views are amazing on the way up and at the top. We got the toboggan ride back down - so much fun! Cable ride was €11 one way. Toboggan €30 for two. It's a must to do if you come here!

We could have stayed here and not cruised any further. Stunning Funchal has got so much to do. Weather was fantastic. We did the cable car to Monte & the botanical gardens & the wicker basket ride down, we didn't do these in an excursion but on out own

Great place and the tobogans is a must. Family loved them. It is a very nice place to look around. But the wife didn't like the cable car. Might of been my fault as I rocked it just a little
