Luis was our guide for the day and was excellent. The tuk tuk was new with seatbelts and a fun inexpensive way to get around. We felt safe at all Tim’s. Luis had lots of facts to give us along the way and was happy to amend the tour for our needs. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Can not recommend this tour or Luis enough.

We had a great tour with Luis and his TukTuk through Funchal old town up to Monte. From Monte we took the basket sled back to Funchal, where Luis picked us up again and drove again through the old town to our starting point. The tour could be designed very flexibly and individually by us and so we were able to get to know Funchal away from the usual city tours!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Tuk Tuk journey up to Monte. Our host, Louis, was both the perfect guide and gentleman, explaining everything as we went along and allowing us to even adapt the journey to meet our needs. He arrived on schedule and communicated with us as soon as the booking had been made. Would not hesitate to use him again.
