Detailed description

Madeira excursions from Funchal: sitting sightseeing tour on two wheels

Three different tours are available: You can conquer the old town of Funchal on the comfortable Sitgo or cruise past the enchanting beaches and natural bathing areas. Finally, Camara de Lobos is an enchanting fishing village with a picturesque bay in the truest sense of the word. The view of the coast and sea has already inspired Sir Winston Churchill to immortalize the scenery in a painting. For sightseeing in Funchal you can visit the old town with its historic and cultural buildings, small alleys and lively squares. And a lot of art. Facades, doors, windows of old houses are often lovingly designed and offer so many beautiful photo motifs. With the Sitgo you are on the move quickly, can stop if you want to see something. Whether the beautiful cathedral or the market halls, Mercado dos Lavradores. On the Sitgo you will definitely experience an unusual city tour in Funchal.

On the Beach Tour you will see what many holidaymakers love about Funchal and Madeira: the extraordinary bathing landscapes. Activities in Madeira always lead to the water and a refreshing swim in one of the natural lava basins on the coast is definitely a special experience. The Lido Funchal is also known for its well-kept saltwater pools. If you like, you can also jump directly into the waves via the access to the sea. A little further along the coast of the flower island Madeira, the tour takes you to Camara de Lobos, about five kilometres from Funchal and the epitome of a fishing village in Madeira. On the way you roll past the impressive cliffs. A more than 2 km long promenade leads from the Lido directly into the bay of Câmara de Lobos. There, where Winston Churchill and others looked so dreamily into the water and admired the shape of the bay.

The Sitgo, which takes you on excursions in Madeira, is a further development of the Segway. Only that you are now sitting on a sightseeing tour through Funchal and its surroundings, but are just as dynamic and agile and independent. The electric scooter is easy to handle. At the beginning of the guided tour you will be familiarized with the scooter and learn what to look out for. And then you can take off and make wonderful discoveries in Madeira in a very comfortable way.

Perfect to see as much as possible

As cruise guests we didn´t have that much time, so the city tour by Segway was perfect to get a great impression of the city in a short time. Many thanks to Juan!

Perfekt, um möglichst viel zu sehen

Als Kreuzfahrtgäste hatten wir nicht so viel Zeit, da war die Stadtrundfahrt mit dem Segway perfekt, um in kurzer Zeit einen tollen Eindruck von der Stadt zu gewinnen. Vielen Dank an Juan!

My daughter really wanted to go on a tour like this and I have to say that I also had a lot of fun. Something other than riding a bike


Meine Tochter wollte unbedingt mal so eine Tour machen und ich muss sagen, es hat mir auch viel Spaß gemacht. Mal was anderes als Fahrrad fahren
