If you come to Madeira you have to go down the hill on one of these traditional wicker baskets. A must-do attraction. Our tour starts on a classic tuk tuk trike, taking you through the Old Town, passing through the farmers’ market and going up to Monte. Along the way you can stop, as much as you like, to see the amazing views over Funchal. We'll take you to the wicker toboggan departure, and wait for you at the end of the journey. - *The toboggan ride ticket is not included in this tour.

I guess its something you must do in Madiera. Travelled as a 3. We knew price was a bit steep 45 Euros for 3 but glad we experienced it. Lovely sunny day. Glad we experienced it. Didn't experience the high pressure selling at the end of the ride some others have had. Walk down

Started by getting the cable car from Funchal up to the gardens and toboggan area. Excellent views across Funchal and the harbour and amazed at the houses perching on the cliff edges. We caught the cable car fairly early in the morning (9.30am) to try and avoid the masses

Great fun we wished it was longer! If you are videoing remember to put it down when the man pops out to take the pic else the photo has you holding your phone up! If you are able to walk it’s quite a pleasant but steep 30 min walk back down into Funchal! Else it’s a heart
