This is well worth the money and when you get to the top there are lots of things to do and you can take the toboggan part way back down or walk and stop off on the way for various refreshments. As long as you keep heading downwards you will eventually reach the sea so you can't really get lost.

A gentle ride which took its time rather than being over in a flash, hope for a clear day though. Toboggan down fun and not as scary as it looks, however, on my first visit took the bus down - that was a thrill believe me, very skilled drivers negotiating the bends, not for the faint hearted - recommend!

What is there not to enjoy about a cable car ride - it was lovely. Beware though - 10 Euros for photographs at the end of the ride

Booked a round trip but wished we had booked a single trip and come down in the baskets which looked great fun.

The cable car gives you the opportunity to see some fantastic views over Funchal, the mix of architecture and the fascinating development of infrastructure, bridges and tunnels that the island uses to overcome its steep terrain. Its also reasonably priced
