Welcome to Madeira Excursions and Madeira Shore Excursions in Funchal Portugal by Shore Excursioneer!

Madeira is known for a temperate climate, fine wines, and lush landscapes. This lovely location has many options to keep visitors happy and we'll have the excursions that will help you to make those memories that last a lifetime. Whether you are an adventurer, lover of culture and history, a history buff, or a gourmet connoisseur, Madeira is sure to have something for everyone.

You will first arrive in Madeira via Funchal, the capital of the island for more than five centuries. The first settlers introduced grapes to the island back in the 1600s and Madeira wine became internationally famous, even earning a mention by Shakespeare himself.

The island's topography, which led to an abundance of produce, and its location, between the Mediterranean and all ports west, helped make made it an important maritime port both historically and currently. It is also a mere 1 hour and a half flight from Portugal as well as a popular cruise destination and these all combine together for a rich display and a love of tourism.

You will discover that we offer Madeira Excursions for your port city, Funchal, as well as many other excursions that will encourage you to explore this lovely island. You will find fascinating architecture in Old Town, and can get lost in the myriad of narrow streets and the vast amount of squares; the ideal excursion for you to explore Madeira at your own pace is our Funchal City Hop On Hop Off Sightseeing Bus Excursion. The three most popular historical sightseeing cruise excursion areas are in Sao Pedro, and Santa Maria, the last being the oldest section of Funchal and has some of the best architecture. You will also find the famous painted doors here along Rua de Santa Maria.

Maybe you'd like to check out its many well-tended gardens, or the famous Fountain Square. Try out the wicker toboggan sleds on our Funchal Four-in-One 4X4 Excursion, this sleds are a tradition for the locals and are loads of fun for all ages. You can ride the cable car up, which will take you to see the summer homes of the rich and famous and visit the Monte Palace, which is now a museum surrounded by lush gardens. You may also wish to explore the surrounding area which is incredibly scenic with landscapes filled with mountains and vineyards. There is much to do and we'll have the perfect Madeira Excursion to match your interests. Enjoy!

Fun fact: according to Shakespeare, in Henry IV, Falstaff was accused of trading his soul for a chicken leg and a chalice of Madeira.
