The green train takes you up to Cabo Giraz to see the glass platform in the cliff . Driven by Sofia who was friendly and full of local knowledge . A must use on a visit to Madeira although you can travel by bus .

Very fairly priced way to get up to Cabo Girao for the view and photo ops. Good fun and good commentary by the driver. You won't be disappointed.

We just missed the train - and finished up walking back to camara de lobos - a VERY long maze-like walk as there are no buses. Take it from me, its great value compared to walking!

Terrific views. The commentary was interesting and light-hearted with a would-be comedian for a driver! Great fun. The viewpoint glass walk was vertigo-inducing but well worth the visit. Do turn up early as the seats fill up.

We caught the little train from the same stop we'd used to get off the City Sightseeing Tour, and had a wonderful ride up to the viewing point. It was excellent value at €7.50 (especially on an island that isn't exactly cheap) and we had...More
