Full description

Partnering you with a local guide, this tour provides a drive along the west coast to the famous sea cliffs of Cabo Girão. On the way to the cliffs, the driver will take you through the touristic area of Funchal. Soon after, the modern buildings will be replaced with banana plants and superb views over the Atlantic Ocean and the cliffs of Cabo Girão.

Cabo Girão has its highest points 580 meters above sea level. From its glass sky-walk you can enjoy some breathtaking views over the coast and beach below. On the way down the cliff, a stop in the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos will provide you with a good opportunity to relax. The fishing village of Camara de Lobos is famous for its picturesque looks, with colorful fishing boats in the dry dock right in center of the village, and a small bay and steep hills crowded with small old buildings. Once in the village, you will have the opportunity to explore it and learn about its history and culture. You can also try some of the local delicacies. Add to your tour by selecting the additional option to visit the Fajã dos Padres scenic overlook. Located 15 Minutes from Cabo Girão, Fajã do Padres is one of Madeira's most unique locations, looking over 1000-foot cliffs to the north and the Atlantic to the south.

On the way back to Funchal, a stop at the volcanic location of Doca do Cavacas will provide a final view over the ocean and cliffs of Cabo Girão.

    Madeira is a gorgeous place, even late in the year, and we were fortunate to have a wonderful tour guide who was a local for 30 years to show us around. Riding around in a tuk tuk, up and down mountains and around rolling corners as we gazed out over a lush landscape was already a magical experience, but our guide made it truly unforgettable. Decio Andre was friendly, funny and clearly dedicated to ensuring we got the most out of our tour right from the start. We became fast friends and he constantly went above and beyond to ensure we saw all the best parts of his homeland. I highly recommend this tour, even if you have already been to Madeira, as the experience of riding around in a tuk tuk in this beatiful paradise is truly unparalleled!

    Nadja picked us up at the cruise terminal right on the ship. She spoke German well and told us a lot of interesting things. Tuxi is a great adventure, close to nature, so you could stop right at the banana plantations, sugar cane fields or vineyards and inspect and explain everything directly from the Tuxi. There is plenty of space for two, you are fast on the road, you feel great, like in a convertible. Even taking a rollator with you was possible without any problems. With the small vehicle you can get anywhere where other tours have to fit. Tour was great. Nadja stopped at great places, gave us enough time to explore .... took photos of us ... 100% recommendation. We were back on time at the ship.
