With this 2-hour tour you can see the most interesting points of the city without wasting time. Luis, the driver and guide, gave me a lot of information about the history of the city, about the buildings and streets of the old town and about the typical products: from wine to different types of bananas, from different ways of preparing poncha to much traditional sweets. The tuk-tuk is a very nice means of transport and allows you to reach points from which you have a breathtaking view of the city and the coast. Luis stayed with me over two hours to complete the tour. Excellent value for money recommended

A very interesting and fun tour of Funchal and view points. Luis was a super guide and driver and showed us the highlights of the city at exactly the right pace. Nothing was too much trouble and he was happy to tailor-make the trip to wherever we preferred to go. He took us down the narrow back streets where only a tuk tuk can go! All in all a highly recommended trip.

Helpful and knowledgeable, a lot to see in thoose two hours
