Madeira
Madeira Market Wine Tour
If you love exotic flavors, adore vibrant colors and shapes, or simply appreciate a sea of gorgeous humanity, you’ll adore the first stop of your tour. Located on the edge of the old town in Funchal, this charming, quaint, youth driven market is an absolute joy to visit, not to mention, a masterclass on island flavors! Ever taste a Custard Apple, a Split Leaf Philodendron, an Indian Fig or a Pitanga? What about a half-dozen different varieties of passion fruit, where each color expresses a completely different flavor! At the end of your sensorial adventure, enjoy a cultural guided tour of Funchal’s late 15th century Cathedral followed by a historical tour and tasting at one of the oldest wine cellars on the island. Happy and satiated, we’ll whisk you off from your Madeira tasting to lunch where you’ll savor island favorites such as Espetada (grilled meat on a skewer) and Espada – black scabbard fish. If you’re needing to commune with nature, we’ll happily provide a guided tour of Funchal’s famed Botanical Garden with a stunning bird’s eye view of the city.

  • Private culinary tour through an iconic open-air market with your local guide
  • Private cultural tour through Funchal’s Cathedral with your local guide
