  • I enjoyed this walking tour. It was very informative and the perfect amount of time.

  • A good, unhurried excursion but not certain we actually learnt anything we could not have picked up from a good guide book.

  • What a wonderful tour! The tour is coordinated through the university and is conducted by college students. Our guide was professional and very knowledgeable. We were the only people on the tour, so we were able to ask questions, take our time and really enjoy the city. I would highly recommend this option to anyone stopping in Funchal.

  • The tour of the old town of Funchal by a dedicated guide gave us an excellent start to our two weeks in Madeira and provided much information about the founding of the town that we would have had to read about elsewhere. We were not hurried and the student took his time in giving us his knowledge about his surroundings that he was plainly passionate about.

  • Very informative tour with excellent leader, making it very worthwhile to orientate to Central Lisbon. Most enjoyable and personable experience, thank you. Elizabeth

  • This tour was amazing. Exceptional value for money. Knowledgeable and friendly guide. You will not be disappointed.

  • An interesting morning. We found out some of the history of Funchal and enjoyed meeting the students.

  • A fantastic and cheap way to get information about Funchal, I redommend everyone!
