Half-Day Madeira Village Safari from Funchal

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Start the day with a pick up from either your Funchal hotel or the cruise port. Head towards Fajã dos Padres, a cliff of 310 meters, to start the safari. As you drive up towards the hills, you will stop half way to use the restrooms. Continue on your drive after that very brief break. You will then come to a serene spot where you will enjoy a view over the village of Jardim da Serra.

    Next, descend towards the town of Fajã das Galinhas. Afterwards, make a short visit to Boca dos Namorados to have a panoramic view of the village Curral das Freiras. The terrain of the valley keeps this quaint village isolated from other communities. Upon completion of the tour, your guide will begin the journey back to Funchal using the motorway.

    We were tight for time so only did the half day tour, our driver Domingo certainly knew his stuff about the region as well as being a comedian too! If we came back to the region we would not hesitate to take one of the longer tours.

    The pick-up went smoothly on time. The guide was brilliant, patient, show every good photo locations. Very good, and fun to travel in the forest in the back of an open vehicle. I can just advise Miguel who was our leader.
