Cable car was really fun way to get up to the hills. A totally different climate was waiting up there. Some quite spectaqular views was there during the climb.. we came same way down.

Must do attraction for Funchal Pleasant and steady cable car ride from town centre to Monte with lovely views over the city, fairly cheap for family of four and well worth a visit to Monte area.

Reasonable price considering the twenty minute relaxed ride up to monte. Lovely to see the town from this perspective. Smooth, quiet and safe. Professionally run. We recommend a single journey up and walk or toboggan down. Not too touristy, and no long queues.

It is comfortable and save!!! Nice views and well localized either at funchal's center as on the other end. Lots of things to do up there. The people at the ticket box aren't very helpfull or sympathetic.

Great views, nice relaxed journey that takes 15-20 minutes each way :) and as long as it's not hugely busy you can get in a cable car with just your own party

I'm not a fan of cable cars, but this was very pleasant - obviously well maintained and gave fantastic views of the city and surrounding areas - worth doing

The start of the cable car is very close to the sea and the fishing side of Madeira
