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.
Given the current covid-19 situation we found this an excellent way to explore the area. Having a personal guide and travelling in a novel mode of transport only added to the overall experience. We both enjoyed the whole authentic tour but just sitting and chatting with a local and discussing the current situation/issues just brings it home that people are pretty much the same all over the world.
Absolutely superb experience from start to finish. The Tuk Tuk ride offered us not only a wonderful journey through Funchal but we were offered lots of information to help us make the most of our stay. Such great service, so friendly! An exhilarating and traditional ride that we won't forget.
Our guide Tiago picked us up from our hotel right on time. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He was easy to interact with answering all our questions. At the end of the tour Tiago dropped us off where we were going next, which was a nice touch.
