It was an amazing experience to travel up to the Monte gardens from the old town and then onto the Botanical gardens by another cable car which travels high above the valley returning to the town centre by bus. fantastic views and both the Monte and Botanical gardens are a must

You take two cable cars to reach the Botanical Gardens. To me the cable cars were the highlight of the trip, views are amazing.

The Botanical Gardens were OK but not outstanding (reason for rating 4*). Didn’t mind as part of the trip.

The experience was excellent & would recommend.

I thought I knew Funchal before the Cable Car started but now having seen new views from above I have found more places to explore. The convenience of the trip from the harbour to Monte and then on to the Botanical Gardens is superb and takes a fraction of the time it took before by taxi or bus and it is cheaper!

I hate the things, but if you have to get to the top.......
It's actually not that bad ! I only went one way....chose a wicker sledge for the trip down.

This is a really lovely experience and to see the beautiful views it is well worth facing a few fears to see.
