“A must trip in funchal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great views. Lovely at the top. Monte gardens worth a visit. Tropical gardens. Not too expensive either!

“Excellent views. Reasonable cost for the experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Excellent cable car experience. Wonderful views of the ocean, ships and oceanside city. At the top is a beautiful garden which is separately priced but reasonable as a glass of wine is included at a little cafe in the walk through the Palace gardens. The walkways contain beautiful flowers but the walking-maze is not easy to navigate with the map that is given. The Monte Palace Museum contains 2 floors of African sculpture, is very interesting, and an easy walk. The Monte Palace Museum of Gemstones within the base floor of the museum is well worth the walk. Some of these stones need more room to show at best advantage. Restrooms are clean. Staff members are friendly & speak English.

“View of Funchal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Cable car very clean. Smooth ride and wonderful views over Funchal. Close up of peoples gardens, don't think I would like people floating over my property every 5 minutes. Had a walk around Monte Church when we reached the top and watched the sleds set off back down the hill.

“Monte cable car visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

It was a short ride but effective for my three year old nephew. It was a clear day and you can see the overview straight down to the sea.
