Full description
On this tour you can tailor an itinerary with the help of your local guide/driver. You can choose the different areas you want to visit. The City of Funchal, the Fishing Village of Câmara de Lobos, the west sea cliffs of Cabo Girão, the unique Fajã dos Padres, the hill side village of Monte, the east coast cliffs of Garajau, the Botanical Garden, or even the breathtaking mountain views of Nuns Valley are all possible options for your tour itinerary. You can choose to visit Funchal city, learn about its history, and see some of its iconic landmarks, like the Sé Cathedral. If you'd like to go up into the mountains, Nuns Valley might be an excellent choice to visit on this tour. Another alternative is to explore the west coast, with a ride to the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. You could also head up into the hills to the top of Cabo Girão cliff where, at its highest point,  a glass sky-walk provides you with some breathtaking views over the south east coast and beach below. Close to Cabo Girão is Fajã do Padres, a sea side area in Madeira with no road or walking access. The only two ways to get there are by cable car ride or by boat. On the way up to Cabo Girão and Fajã dos Padres you will be able to admire an ever-changing landscape along the winding roads that fallow the natural shape of the hills. On the return trip to Funchal from the west coast you might choose to stop at the natural swimming pools of Doca do Cavacas. Travel on to Garajau, set at the east end of the bay of Funchal. You will be offered a spectacular view of the Christ the Redeemer statue - older than the one in Brazil - whilst marveling at the crystal-clear waters on the beach below. You also have the option to visit the Botanical Garden. Whatever your choice of itinerary, your guide will be there to help you at every moment.

My personalized tuk tuk tour of Funchal through Tukxi Madeira was fantastic! My guide was João and it ended up only being me on the tour as my friend was feeling unwell. Our flight landed an hour late and Tukxi Madeira worked to still accommodate our 6-hr personalized tour as best they could, and João did his best to make my tour as long as possible. During the 5-hr tour, we traveled throughout Funchal and went to Cabo Girão as well as the town of Câmara de Lobos. I enjoyed both destinations greatly! João was incredibly knowledgeable about the island, its history, and so much more- I found the tour very informative and entertaining. He also made sure that my tour ended after 6pm so that I could see the streets lit up with all the Christmas lights before he dropped me off at my hotel! It was very thoughtful!

This was a great way to explore parts of the island at a relaxed pace. The driver was very knowledgeable about everything and was very helpful in explaining everything. He was very happy to tailor the tour to our request and gave us tips about places to eat etc.

What a way to experience the beautiful island of Madeira - a complete adventure with an expert native guide! It was, quite simply, one of the best days on holiday we’ve had in a very long time. Wilson, our guide, was polite, courteous and friendly. During our trip he imparted so much detailed information about the island, much of which you don’t read in guide books. And all in impeccable English too (fluent in Spanish as well!). We felt we’d known Wilson for years by the end of the journey and we were sad to say goodbye. We intend to return next year and would like to explore further in Wilson’s Tuk-Tuk. This trip was great value for money and a unique experience.
