I don't give a 5 star rating easily, but Tukxi was simply excellent! First we booked just this tour around Funchal but then we used their services throughout our stay. They were able to tailor make tours for us just as we liked them. They are very knowledgable, they know a lot of trivia and you can simply tell they love their beautiful island of Madeira and want for you to fall in love with it too. And so we did! I travelled with my daughter (9) and we both loved all our outings with Tukxi! I can only recommend that you try this tour first, get the feel of how they work and I can guarantee this tour will not be your last with them!
The tour was a good introduction for the city. I had such a good time riding the tuk tuk hearing what Diego talked about Madeira. I booked another half day tour to other part of Madeira, such as the tropical garden and east part of the island. Diego was quite cheerful and full of stories. I enjoyed listening about local culture and history. To be honest I had no idea what he looked like as both of us were wearing masks during both journeys.
Explanations were clear, had a great time enjoying scuba diving and exploring unseen realms underwater by looking at different species of fishes. Fishes are not those of coral riffs but for the very beginning, it has been enough and definitely uplifting, appealing, compelling experience. Thank you for this opportunity and would recommend it to everybody because it is really worthwhile, unique and something that everyone should cope with.
We had a beautiful and unforgettable experience. Hugo was our guide and he is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He is also an excellent driver which is required for this trip as you go off-road. He speaks perfect English and went above and beyond to make our day pleasant. Due to COVID there was only us booked in the tour and he didn’t cancel which is a great customer service. I would definitely recommend this.
The ship's crew were very kind and informative. They always took care that everyone in the boat would be happy. But we didn't have luck to see dolphins and wales but we still had very good time with very nice people. I recommend it to everyone!
