I highly recommend this tour! It was amazing and a great way to see a lot of Funchal in just a couple hours. Our tour guid Andrea was wonderful so full of information and such a kind warm person. We missed our connection coming into Funchal so we missed our original tour time. I messaged Luis the owner and he was kind enough to reschedule the tour for us. Not many companies are that gracious. It is worth every penny and I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed seeing Funchal this way. It was worth every penny and more!

We were picked up well on time at the hotel by Luis. After short questions about what we had already seen and what we hadn't seen, Luis showed us the entire city of Funchal in a very pleasant and spontaneous way. Nothing was too much and we were able to get out everywhere to see a few things. Great experience to drive around a city with a Tuktuk, a very nice way to see the city in a different way and to hear about the history of Madeira and Funchal from a very enthusiastic local guide. After almost 3 hours (while the tour was officially 2 hours) we were dropped off back at the hotel. Would love to go out with Luis next time

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
