Stay the whole week in Funchal, or not?  (2 Answers)

Hello!
I will visit Madeira for a week in April and during that week I would like to do several hikes. Is it good to base myself in Funchal and from there make daytrips with local transportation (bus) to places where I can start/end a hike, or should I base myself in another town/village for a few days?

How much time do I need in Madeira  (5 Answers)

Hi, my wife and I are going to visit Madeira in May 2016. How much time do we need to see all the island and not be in a rush. We also would like to visit Porto Santo while we are there. It looks like we will have to get a flight into Lisbon and then onto Madeira. We were planning on a minimum of two weeks but could stay longer if need be.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

Buses schedule and routes  (4 Answers)

Hello,

Can you please help me consulting on the buses routes and schedules (or maybe taxi fares) on Madeira? I will be travelling to the island in September. I am travelling with my fiancee on a romantic trip and we would like to visit a few gorgeous places.

These are the Jesus Christ statue, the Cabo Girao cliff, the Ponta do Pargo lighthouse and a ride on the Cable car with visiting the Tropcial garden. Our driving experience is less than 1 year, so we are unable to rent a car.

Could you please help me and explain how can we get from our hotel to the desirable places? We have booked Vidamar Resorts hotel on Estrada Monumental.

First we would like to go to see the Jesus Christ statue, then get to the Cable Car and see the famous Garden there. After that we would love to visit one of the europe's highest cliff - Cabo Girao. And last but not least, we want to see the Ponta do Pargo lighthouse, have a meal there and then return to the hotel on Estrada Monumental in Funchal.

I appreciate your help!

Query about the four views hotel in Funchal  (2 Answers)

Hi

Myself and a friend were thinking of booking a holiday at your hotel through Thomsons Travel Agent on the 3rd March 2014.

On the reviews it quotes that your hotel will be closed due to refurbishment.

Please can you tell me if this is the case because all the travel agents are not telling customers.

Can you also recommend any other hotel which is suitable for senior citizens.
