Overview
Exploring Madeira’s west coast from Funchal is tricky without a hire car or constant bus-hopping. This full-day tour steps up, with a seamless loop around the west and north coasts, with stops on route. Absorb the views from Cabo Girao, visit Camara de Lobos and Porto Moniz; and experience the Ribeira da Janela valley and Laurissilva forest. Central Funchal hotel pickup and drop-off makes your day complete.

Great day out. Our driver/guide, Roberto, was really friendly and informative. We were picked up promptly and he was a good driver. I enjoyed the tour immensely and also did the day trip to the East of the island - also with Roberto. I'd thoroughly recommend the company.
