My husband and I and daughter got a wicker sled for three. Our drivers really made it fun for us, twisting as if we were ready to go off the edge. We enjoyed it thoroughly. When done, take a look at their special shoes and also how they pile the baskets in a truck and the drivers on a bus to take them all back to the top again. Yes, they do leave you off in the middle of a residential neighborhood - it took us about an hour to walk back to our apartment in mid-Funchal. And it's steeply downhill. But it is a very nice walk, with lots of interesting things to look at and beautiful views. Just keep the cable car line and the ocean in view to orient yourselves.
