    This tour included more than just wine and food experiences. We learned some history and botanical information. It was great!``

    Excellent tour, very knowledgable and professional guide. Roberto was great fun and told us a lot about Funchal food and wine and managed to fit in the briefest summary of Funchal and European architecture. Highly recommend

    We had a wonderful time. Carla guided us expertly through a lovely traditional Madeiran lunch with wine followed by a walk through the colourful food market. We tried poncha - pretty strong! Chocolates, cheeses, wine, Portuguese cakes and tea - fabulous! We had such fun with our group and learned so much about this beautiful island. We would strongly recommend this to anyone who likes learning, walking, food and wine. 😃💖

    Multilingual guide Roberto was excellent. Thoroughly recommend this tour - seems quite expensive but not really when you get 3 hours of tour and what you eat/drink during the visits. Recommend you only have a small breakfast as you will be having a series of small (and not so small) snacks on your tour but definitely eat something as, if you want to, you go straight in to alcohol tasting at your first stop. Small group of 10 people. Lots of information from Roberto about restaurants, things to do, etc. Pleased that we did this early in our holiday.

    I did this tour right on my first day in Madrira and it was the perfect start. Apart from trying great local food and drinks, Roberto gave some background information about Funchal and Madeira. He's very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was having a good time. Highly recommended!

    Wir hatten eine Tour mit Roberto. Und es war lustig, informativ, nahrhaft und sprittig. Kurzum, es war ein gelungener Vormittag. Wir haben es sehr genossen und Dinge kennengelernt, die wir noch nicht kannten obwohl wir passionierte Madeiraurlauber sind.

    Can't recommend this highly enough and as others said below, try to do this as early in your trip as possible and have a small breakfast! Elder was our guide and she was excellent - very friendly and it was great to find out about Funchal and Madeira from a local. There was plenty of food and drink along the way. We went back to one of the restaurants on the tour. thanks!

    Jacqueline took us on a great tour of Funchal stopping at six different food and drink enterprises, serving a wide variety of tasty treats. We tasted meats, chocolates, tea, cakes, wine and more. Jacqueline is very much a local and gave us a good background to the places we visited and the history of the city. There was absolutely no pressure, at the time, to buy anything from the places visited but many of our group returned later to make purchases.

    Roberto was an amazing host! Knowledgeable of food, wine, history and all things associated! We were FULL at the end. It was a great way to kick off our Funchal vacation!
