What People Are Saying About Funchal

Excellent. Guide was superb. An extrêmely knowledgeable young student

A gréât way to learn all about Madeira's history while exploring the old town. Lots of things pointed out which you would miss on your own and would not find in a guidebook. Small group - we were on our own! - with a friendly, extremely knowledgeable young guide who was also good fun.

Excellent half day tour on a beautiful island

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We found Nuns Valley to be most unique and we were totally fascinated with the wonderful scenery.

Charming, knowledgeable tour guide who answered all our questions.

Tour is highly recommended to get that local knowledge and insight into the place that you'd just be unaware of if wandering around on your own. History Tellers is a great outfit largely staffed - as I understand it - by short-term placement people from many countries. Our guide was Polish but dealt perfectly with us Brits and was a very pleasant young woman; thank you, Elvira. I'd encourage all visitors to Funchal to consider using this extremely competitively priced organisation - you may be lucky as we were to try some local liquers and poncha after the tour as well!

I felt underprivileged: the guide didn't speak only my language ;)

Since the group was very international, our guide Bruno, had to repeat everything three times: in Portuguese, English and German so that the tourists could get all the information in their respective languages. I speak everyone else's language, he spoke everyone else's language, but Bulgarian, and I felt underprivileged ;) As a matter of fact, Bruno was a great guide, the tour was interesting and fun: an easy way to get to know the western part of the island.

Superb scenery and an excellent guide and driver

We were picked up at our hotel to join six other tourists in a minibus. Our driver made us all feel welcome and stared to explain facts about the countryside and the history of its people. He was an excellent driver and gave us time to take photos at various stops en route. Our orders for lunch were taken and phoned ahead so that all was waiting for us on arrival at the restaurant. The three course lunch meal was very enjoyable. Because of a rock fall we had to modify our route but that didn't detract from the enjoyment of our full day's tour. An excellent and informative trip.
