I think it was such a waste of time. No interesting information, strange jokes... if you like it - go. In Lisbon free tour was just GREAT. It Funchal - DISAPPOINTMENT.
Short walk, about 1 or 1,5 km.

My wife and I joined Pedro and approx. 8 others on the walking tour on Sunday 22nd October and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Pedro is an excellent host and extremely humourous and the 2.5 hours passed in no time.

Pedro is passionate about Funchal and Madeira and makes his foot tour very informative and entertaining, many thanks for showing us your beautiful city.

I've used Sandemans walking tours in other European cities and Pedro was equal if not better than those.

With my girlfriend we wanted to do waking tour on Sunday afternoon (4 pm). I send him two email with request for tour confirmation, but there was no response.

Lesson learned, if you don't get any response, the tour will not take place. Not needed to go to meeting point.

This tour was absolutely wonderful. Pedro was funny, informative and helpful. I recommend doing this tour when you first arrive in Funchal, it really helps you to get your bearings and also highlights other places you may want to vsiit on your holiday. Pedro is able to speak a wide variety of languages and can easily switch between them for a mixed-languague group. He has lots of little insider tips for places to visit and activities to do that are definitely worth taking on board!
We did walk for the whole 2 hours we were with Pedro but the walk was realtively flat and easy to manage (I still recommend comfy shoes though!). Pedro has a long list of stories about the city and its history, some of it true and some of it a bit less true :D Pedro keeps you entertained throughout the whole 2 hours, so much so that the time flew by!
