Worth the ride for the lovely views.

There were long queues as 4 cruise ships were in port but a quick moving & efficient queue.
Not sure with COVID restrictions it was right to put in 6 people.

Fun experience
Nov 2021
Nice 15 minute ride to Monte. Amazing views. Definitely a "must-do". Can either ride back or take the toboggan ride.

Panoramic views
Nov 2021
There’s the much to add to other’s comments. Efficient service when buying tickets. Everything is well explained. Cable cars are clean and offer a great view.

I bought the return package including Botanical gardens. Prices as listed on the website.

Full Monte
Nov 2021 • Couples
Yes it's a tourist trap, but if you read up beforehand then you know what it's going to be like, the cost and what you get for your money.
We thought this worthwhile, a fantastic view of Funchal going up the hill and room enough at the top to see the city laid out below us. It's always worth trying the obvious attractions.

Best way to get to Mont Palace gardens
Oct 2021 • Couples
It takes about 20 minutes and there's great views on the way up and down. It's worth getting a return ticket unless you are using the toboggans to get back to Funchal. We went up to the gardens on the 9.00 cable car to get there when they open at 9.30, and there were no queues. 2 hours later, when we returned to Funchal, there was a big queue for the cable car.

Great way to get to Monte
Oct 2021
A really nice way to get to Monte with so many views. It's not cheap but worth it as driving up to Monte is not for the faint of heart with its high peaks and narrow residential roads. With the cable car, you can simply relax and take in the view.

Worth a trip
Oct 2021 • Family
We went on the cable in the late afternoon when it was quiet. It’s not cheap, but it is very clean and feels safe which is the main thing. Our family had a cable car to ourselves, as it was quiet. The cable car takes 15/20 minutes and can get quite stuffy even with the windows ajar, so I would definitely not be happy about sharing with strangers, especially in Covid times. If you’d rather not share with others, choose a quiet time, ideally when there is no cruise ship!

The cable car arrives next to the garden entrance, which is worth a visit. It’s also nice to walk up to the church.

I’d recommend a trip on this. Even if you don’t visit the gardens, it gives great views over Funchal.

Waist of money

Waist of money. There is very little what to do when up. Much better views from the top of the mountain where you could get by car or taxi.

Cable car
Oct 2021 • Friends
Nice views definitely worth a visit. The staff could use some manners. They were impatient and sharp at times- not all of them. There was a 30 minute wait for us but it moved steadily.

Pick a quiet time if poss so you have car to yourself
Sep 2021
First time we went the cable cars broke down just before boarding but we were able to keep ticket for another stay so avoiding the long queue at the ticket office.

Nice long ride up the mountain but we had to share with another couple which meant we had to keep masks on which was a pain.

Good views down to Funchal
