Detailed description

Madeira Island Safari: Funchal Sightseeing in Electric Car

It is often the unusual and unexpected experiences that will be remembered from your holiday. Experience a completely different, exciting sightseeing tour on Madeira in an electric mobile. On the 2-hour round trip you roll with the agile speedster through the narrowest alleys of the city, the most beautiful mountains up and the most wonderful vantage points towards. The tour starts in Funchal. After a short briefing you start the electric motor and follow your guide in a two-seater to the most important points of the capital. The route includes numerous route points, which will bring you closer to Funchal from different points of view. You will follow the paths by the sea, from there into the heart of the city and up to a panorama over the enchanting bay of Funchal. Drivers need a driving license, co-drivers should be at least 3 years old.

Both the east side and the west side of Funchal will be approached on the sightseeing tour. The first stop is in the eastern part and offers perhaps the most beautiful view of the bay of Funchal - the panorama of Neves you enjoy about 280 meters above sea level. From there it goes into the nature park of Garajau. There you will find the famous Christ Monument. Situated on a rocky promontory, this place also offers a unique view over the surroundings of Funchal. You will then roll along some of Madeira's oldest and narrowest streets into the historic centre of Funchal and your guide will provide you with interesting information about monuments, sights and squares in the city. Above all, this part gives pleasure to many participants, because the driving fun downhill doubles, but also the city ensemble from above seems so unique. The third and with approximately 30 minutes longest stop of the sightseeing tour around Funchal is planned at the Pico dos Barcelos. At 355 metres this vantage point crowns this exciting tour in an electric car with a fantastic panoramic view of Funchal and the neighbouring islands.

The modern, environmentally friendly electric cars that make this Funchal tour possible have a range of around 100 kilometres. The co-driver sits here in the back. Before the start you will learn more about the driving behaviour, the steering and braking and also do a small trial round. In addition to the many highlights on the Funchal Tour, it is above all the driving fun with these agile speedsters that makes the round trip so unusual and will certainly give you some unforgettable moments.

Something else

Driving something other than the usual Segway or bus. It's worth it.
