3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Quite frightening going up but fantastic views. Got the bus back. Apart from the gardens not much more to do.

“A must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

What a fantastic journey. I'm scared of heights but I soon forgot about it. Lovely views and at the top there are lovely gardens to visit and a ride down on a toboggan. Good scary fun.

“Very convenient, but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We went down by the cable car from Monte to Funchal (we went up walking from Palheiras). It is very convenient and fast, but much more expensive than the bus (10 €)
