Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your excursion begins at the pier where you'll board your motorcoach and travel through Funchal. Pass the picturesque fishing village of Camara de Lobos, a favorite haunt of Sir Winston Churchill's in the 1950s, en route to Cabo Girao.

Travel past vineyards, terraced fields, and pinewoods and eucalyptus groves to the cliff top of Cabo Girao. This second-highest sea cliff in the world is a sheer drop of over 1,500 feet from the top to the waves below. The viewpoint affords dramatic views of the coast and Funchal in the distance.

Return to Funchal via the viewpoint of Pico dos Barcelos for panoramic views of Funchal with its red-tiled roofs.

Explore the Funchal Market with its colorful displays of tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers and crafts and catch a glimpse of the day to day life of the Madeiran people.

Continue to the embroidery factory where you'll learn that hand-stitched embroidery has long been one of Madeira's exports, and is as acclaimed as the island's wine. Tour the factory for a first-hand look how this intricate embroidery is made. Then, enjoy a glass of Madeira wine. You'll have a chance to browse the showroom afterwards.

Special Notes:

This tour does not operate on public holidays, Saturday afternoons and Sundays. On Saturdays the embroidery factory is closed and only showrooms and wine cellar are available.
