    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.

    Super nice tour. We saw a lot and learned a lot about Madeira. Unfortunately, our guides didn't speak German very well, which wasn't a problem for us, but is a problem for those who don't speak English. If I book a German tour, I want it too. Now there is no point deduction :-). Can 100% recommend the tour.
