The tour itself was brilliant. Lots of photo opportunities and the tour guide was very informative and helpful. Saw some amazing views from high points and visited a very attractive old house. The only issue is during winter season the ferry from Funchal only does 1 run so it arrives at 10:30 and then doesn't leave until 18:00. The tour ended at about 13:00 which left me with 4 hours picked up at 17:00 to find something to do. If you're prepared or have kids you can go to the beach and catch the sun or go for a swim but I had neither so I got bored fairly quickly and just ended up walking through town and out onto the pier just staring at the amazing views. Nothing wrong with the tour or guide, just didn't know there would be such a long wait.
