I have two tours organised for December, With Pearl of the Atlantic.
We will visit the Nativity sets in Ribeira Brava, Ponta do Sol , Calheta and then on to Prazeres. Here we will have a lunch which is included in the price, Bolo do Caco, Picado, Chips, Salad and Sweet Potato with a drink. After lunch we will go to Ponta do Pargo, famous for all the little Nativity Cribs outside peoples houses, after a walk round the village to see these we will head back. Price is 28.00 per person, Pick up from Cristo Rei, Funchal Cable Car, and its also possible Ribeira Brava which will be our first stop.
The second tour is to Santo Serra Market, December 23rd. We will make a couple of stops at a view point and traditional Poncha bar on the way. We will spend about 3-4 hours at the market, where you have a great choice of places to eat, buy local fruit vegetables and other items, also pick up some last minute Christmas gifts.
This has to be one of my favourite places to be on a Sunday. Pick ups will be from Funchal Cable Car and Cristo Rei in Garajau. We aim to be back by 5.30pm as people will want to relax and get ready for the Christmas market night in Funchal that evening. This tour is 17.50 per person.
For either tour please email me at [email protected] and let me know which tour you are interested in.
