    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at the hotel bus stop on Avenida do Mar or your selected Funchal city hotel, and hop into an air-conditioned coach for your half-day tour of Madeira’s enchanting valleys and traditions. Buckle-up and head 25 minutes north to Eira do Serrado. Climb to the top of the pass and look down into an extinct volcano crater where a tiny village named Curral das Freiras has resided since the 15th century. Spend time capturing shots of this village’s stunning terrain.

    Then, head to Monte a quaint village tucked in the suburbs of Funchal. Here, see the 18th century Parish church surrounded by terracotta roofed homes. Afterward, take a ride aboard a city toboggan, designed out of a large wicker basket (own expense). Cruise about 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) down to the Livramento school at exciting speeds.

    Next, head back to Funchal and visit the Madeira region’s capital city. Finally, indulge traditional Madeira wines (fortified wines) at a private cellar tasting before you return to your hotel in Funchal where your tour ends.
