This is quite a unique experience so we had to do it. It wasn’t as fast or out of control as I was expecting, but it was fun and I was impressed at the skill of the drivers/stearers/pushers! You can buy a print of your...More

Thought we were going to die in a Picnic Basket before hand but this was an amazing fun and felt very safe as we slid along the roads. Everybody needs to do this when visiting Madeira.

Having got the Monte Cable Car up to the top, we waited for over an hour in the queue to have a go of the sleds but it was definitely worth it! On some roads, you start to go down at some pace whilst some...More

I’ve seen mixed reviews on here but we couldn’t fault this experience. It’s 15 euros each and we walked down the rest of the hill (this is pretty steep so I’d recommend trainers - otherwise taxis charge 15euros which is a rip off!) The sled...More
