Full description
On this tour you can tailor an itinerary with the help of your local guide/driver. You can choose the different areas you want to visit. The City of Funchal, the Fishing Village of Câmara de Lobos, the west sea cliffs of Cabo Girão, the unique Fajã dos Padres, the hill side village of Monte, the east coast cliffs of Garajau, the Botanical Garden, or even the breathtaking mountain views of Nuns Valley are all possible options for your tour itinerary. You can choose to visit Funchal city, learn about its history, and see some of its iconic landmarks, like the Sé Cathedral. If you'd like to go up into the mountains, Nuns Valley might be an excellent choice to visit on this tour. Another alternative is to explore the west coast, with a ride to the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. You could also head up into the hills to the top of Cabo Girão cliff where, at its highest point,  a glass sky-walk provides you with some breathtaking views over the south east coast and beach below. Close to Cabo Girão is Fajã do Padres, a sea side area in Madeira with no road or walking access. The only two ways to get there are by cable car ride or by boat. On the way up to Cabo Girão and Fajã dos Padres you will be able to admire an ever-changing landscape along the winding roads that fallow the natural shape of the hills. On the return trip to Funchal from the west coast you might choose to stop at the natural swimming pools of Doca do Cavacas. Travel on to Garajau, set at the east end of the bay of Funchal. You will be offered a spectacular view of the Christ the Redeemer statue - older than the one in Brazil - whilst marveling at the crystal-clear waters on the beach below. You also have the option to visit the Botanical Garden. Whatever your choice of itinerary, your guide will be there to help you at every moment.

What a way to experience the beautiful island of Madeira - a complete adventure with an expert native guide! It was, quite simply, one of the best days on holiday we’ve had in a very long time. Wilson, our guide, was polite, courteous and friendly. During our trip he imparted so much detailed information about the island, much of which you don’t read in guide books. And all in impeccable English too (fluent in Spanish as well!). We felt we’d known Wilson for years by the end of the journey and we were sad to say goodbye. We intend to return next year and would like to explore further in Wilson’s Tuk-Tuk. This trip was great value for money and a unique experience.

John, our guide, drove us by Tuk Tuk to some wonderful places around Funchal and to the west of the city. We wanted to see more of the island’s coastline, villages and scenery. His choices of destination were spot on, and the visits were brought to life by his vast knowledge of the history and culture of the island. It was only a six hour excursion but we returned to the city feeling far more immersed in this wonderful place than when we left. This was a really enjoyable and valuable experience.

We picked this tour specifically because it could be customized. Tiago was a super guide and it turns out he is from the same town as our ancestors! He was so knowledgeable about the island and its history which really made the tour so much more meaningful. Plus he was so pleasant and a great conversationalist. I highly recommend this tour - especially if the places you want to see are spread out. And if you can get Tiago as your driver, all the better.
