Highest recommendation possible for the Tukway experience. We had an absolutely fantastic time on this tour. Our driver guides were Lois and Andrea. Excellent communication before the tour and Lois and Andrea's knowledge of their beautiful island was outstanding. We learned so much about Madeira's history, culture and people. Our guides' passion for their homeland was utterly infectious and they created an atmosphere of excitement and joy throughout. Lois even took some videos of our family on the wooden toboggan for us. Don't miss this trip. Thank you so much Lois and Andrea

The tour was very nice and, in addition to the extremely beautiful view, you could also pick up many insider tips, which all turned out to be worthwhile. The ride was very pleasant and the incredibly nice driver was able to present the different sides of Funchal very nicely. Highly recommended!

our Tuk Tuk driver 'Andrea' is excellent. she is full of information about Funchal and described everything to us very well. She also has a warm and friendly personality. Due to our late arrival at the pickup point, the Tuk Tuk team did their best to contact us, despite our communication issues.
