This was our first time and what a spectacular view you get when traveling down from Monte and it was a great way to finish off after our visit to the tropical gardens and it takes you all the way down to Funchal old town....More

I had a great time on the cable car, it wasn't too expensive and I visited the Botanical Gardens.
The garden has lots of steps and slops and may be an issue for people with mobility issues but it is lovely.

When we did the taboggan we were on a mini bus trip so we were dropped off, did the taboggan, then were picked up at the end of the ride. I know there are taxis available or if you don't mind walking, it is all down hill. It's very steep so wouldn't recommend walking back up to get back on the cable car. You can get just a one way ticket up on the cable car so not too bad. Hope you have a great time. It is a lovely Island.
