Overview

This half-day is dedicated to one of the havens of Madeira, the gardens! We partnered with Monte Palace Garden and Botanical Garden of Madeira to show you this beauty. The first stop is at Monte Palace Tropical Garden, which impresses with its beauty, diversity of culture, as well as, traces of the history of Portugal since the reign of D. Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal. The Monte Palace Madeira occupies an area of 70.000 square meters and houses a huge exotic plant’s collection, coming from all over the world, together with swans and duck’s, that populates the central lake, peacocks and chickens, that walk free in the main areas of the property.

The tour ends in the botanical garden, founded in 1960 by a Madeiran Botanical, here we can find more than 2500 species of plants, from different parts in the world all brought together in the Garden of the Atlantic.

Richard was an excellent guide and the gardens were both interesting and beautiful. It was also interesting to lean the history of the gardens.

Richard was our driver and our tour guide at the same time picked us up and he speaks English well . We got what we wanted to explore with the Monte Palace Garden and the Botanical Garden more than we expect ... He was so kind ... it was all worthy ... I highly recommend This tour ... We didn’t expect that he will pick us up from Toboggan ride too which was very kind of him and he find way to get in touch with us after the ride . Sobrang bait mo Richard and more power to you
A stroll through Madeira's gardens....

We had a great tour of the Botanical and Monte Palace Gardens. Richard was, as usual, highly informative and his commentary really added to the experience. He took photos (which are a lovely record of the experience) and could not have been more helpful. Like other reviewers, I would say its worth booking ahead - we only had a choice of two dates because we booked rather late, although luckily these days worked for us.
Great choice for us

My husband and I wanted to see both the Monte Palace Gardens and the Botanical Gardens. Pearl of the Atlantic was able to arrange a half-day tour for us. Marco picked us up at our ship and stayed with us the entire time, showing us various aspects of both destinations. As an added surprise, he photographed us along the way and emailed us the photos later. After enjoying both sites, he drove us to an hilltop outlook to see the bay from afar. There, he presented us with homemade sweetcakes made by his aunt. and serenaded us. It was a delightful end to a lovely tour before our return to our ship. I hightly recommend this tour company.
Excellent half day tour of gardens

Richard gave us an excellent tour of the Botanical and Monte Palace gardens. We enjoyed listening to his knowledge of the gardens as we walked around them and his company. He also took some wonderful photos of us and the gardens and sent them to me after the tour. When we return to Maderia we will use this company for private tours again. We did not feel rushed and were well looked after. I recommend you book before coming out to Maderia as other tourists we met were finding all tours book up quickly as lots of visitors the week we visited.
