Explore the sights of picturesque Madeira under your own steam.

Madeira is a magical island filled with lush botanical gardens, bustling farmers markets, museums, cathedrals, and a network of narrow, cobbled streets to explore. If you prefer doing your own thing ashore, the ‘Funchal on your own’ option comes with everything you need for your day out.

It includes a detailed town map with highlighted attractions, two adult return tickets for the cable car, and a discount voucher for 10% off purchases of Madeira Wines (under 10 years) at the Blandy Wine Lodge. And no transportation or set departure times, are involved – so you can explore in your own time.
