a day visit

I'm planning on taking a cruise and the ship docks in Funchal Port. I'm trying to get more options to choose from other than the ships tours to spend the day in Madeira.

Can anyone give me any advice or tips on tours that can pick me up at the ship and is reasonably priced?

Once away from the harbour area, ask any of the yellow cab taxi driver's the price for a tour, we found this to be one of the best ways to see the real Madeira, it's not that expensive for what you get and YOU get to say where and when you want to stop!

If you're there for a day I would do the Monte Palace and garden cable car trip, toboggan run and a bus tour / walkabout in Funchal.

You can always come back again.
