This ticket lets you sight-see Funchal from the vantage-point of an old-school sidecar. Your expert motorcycle driver will take you on a windy route through the Old Town’s narrow lanes first. You’ll spot the yachts and liners in the marina as you pass the seafront, plus there’ll be a photo stop at Pináculo, a lovely cliffside viewpoint that opens up cinematic vistas of the island’s southern shoreline. Ponta do Garajau is also on the cards – it’s a 180-metre-high cape topped with a huge Christ The Redeemer-like statue, which is actually older than Brazil’s famous monument. The views from up here are spectacular, and you might even catch a glimpse of the whales, dolphins, and seals that call the coastal waters home.
We recommend that you wear a jacket. Each vehicle carries two passengers, one on the back of the bike and one in the sidecar.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
