My personalized tuk tuk tour of Funchal through Tukxi Madeira was fantastic! My guide was João and it ended up only being me on the tour as my friend was feeling unwell. Our flight landed an hour late and Tukxi Madeira worked to still accommodate our 6-hr personalized tour as best they could, and João did his best to make my tour as long as possible. During the 5-hr tour, we traveled throughout Funchal and went to Cabo Girão as well as the town of Câmara de Lobos. I enjoyed both destinations greatly! João was incredibly knowledgeable about the island, its history, and so much more- I found the tour very informative and entertaining. He also made sure that my tour ended after 6pm so that I could see the streets lit up with all the Christmas lights before he dropped me off at my hotel! It was very thoughtful!

Despite the rain and storm, the tour took place..something was changed because it was too stormy in the Lobeerwald.Unfortunately..but no one can be picked up from the meeting point on time due to the weather. A great day trip

This tour was very good. I recommend it to Everybody if You want to see main points in West Madeira.

As always, everything went well. the driver was on time, friendly and helpful

Super excursion with stations that would never find alone.
