I wasn't too sure about this at first but glad I gave it ago! A brilliant experience and not as scary as I thought although coming down was better than going up! The photo and offer of a free gift on purchase is a bit of a con but you don't have to buy

The views are spectacular and the gardens at Monte and the botanics are wonderful.
There are two sections and you can choose one or both.
You can also take the famous toboggan ride back down, but note it only takes you halfway then you walk or use a taxi.

As long as you don't mind heights, this is a 'must do' when in Funchal. The views are spectacular, and you can visit two beautiful gardens. If you don't take a return ticket, you can make the return journey on one of the traditional wood and wicker sledges - if you dare!

Bit of a walk back down into Funchal from drop off point, maybe we should have spent 10 Euros on a taxi!
