Funchal: Old Town Tour by Tuk Tuk with Traditional Toboggan

1. Funchal: Old Town Tour by Tuk Tuk with Traditional Toboggan

Enjoy this adventurous tour of Monte Village and Funchal with an exhilarating toboggan ride at the end. Admire beautifully decorated streets and visit the Church of Our Lady of the Mount. Starting at the Old Town, see the “painted doors” throughout the streets of Santa Maria, where numerous doors were painted by different artists giving this street a unique glow. Also, admire the picturesque details of cobblestone floors and the façades of the old houses on Rue de Santa Maria. Next, continue towards Monte and visit the Church of Our Lady of the Mount. The structure that is visible today for all its visitors was completed back in 1818 and is one of the most sought sites by churchgoers and tourists in general. After visiting Monte, dare to ride some toboggans, more commonly known as “Carreiros do Monte." Toboggan riding was traditionally a means of transportation by locals who wanted to travel quickly from Monte´s village to Funchal. This adventurous and old-fashioned transportation appeared around the 1850s and is still in use today.

What people are saying about Foz do Douro

Highly recommended this tour! Our guide Loui knew a lot to tell and was able to answer all our questions. We have seen and visited a lot in a relatively short time. During the tour there was also room to get out and briefly visit sights. What made the tour really fantastic was the tips and possibilities about what to do after the tour and what times are perfect for this.

From booking to dropping of we could have not been dealt with more professionally, courteous and friendly manner. Informative of the local area and Madeira. Cannot recommend when visiting Funchal you must use Tukway, Luis & Andrea are amazing people and guides. Great value for money. Can’t wait to come back.

This was a brilliant tour would recommend to anyone. Our drivers Luis & Andria speak perfect English and know so many facts about Madeira. Perfectly safe drivers.
