It was a good ride upward but at the end of the day Madeira is so hilly you get good views wherever you go. So not really needed the chair lift

Reassuringly new and very stable! We took the cable car from the botanical gardens and back, 12 euro return trip and we'll worth it! The views are amazing, there was no waiting and they are very stable!

Wonderful experience and well worth the cost. Far seeking views on a clear day and felt very safe. No queueing and easy to get on and off.

The cable car ride is good if you dont mind heights. I had to ride up with my eyes closed but my husband said the views were magnificent and he did get some stunning photos.

The views of the coast were fantastic - a good 15 minute trip each way - there was the ability to choose several different packages depending on what attractions/gardens you wished to see.

This is a great way to see views of Maderia. Not for the faint hearted and a little pricey, but if you want the best views and a great way to the gardens then his is it.

Value for money. Start your holiday by riding the cable car doing the round trip. It gives you a great view over Funchal. The ride seems to go on and on for a long time, so sit in the cable car and enjoy.
