Today we made a wonderful Tukxi trip to the Botanical Gardens in Funchal. The driver showed up right on time at our hotel and shared a lot of fun facts about the area, local plantlife and the local history. Afterwards we were dropped off at our hotel again. Would definitely recommend!

We had to alter our plans as we arrive a day kater than planned due to high winds so no planes could land on the Monday 11/07/2022 so requested the day before if they could pick us up on another day and they did which was great. The driver when going around the streets was advising us of different periods of history associated with the buildings.So made the ride more enjoyable

Four of us did the tour with two Tuxis. We had two super good guides who took us to the botanical guest and gave us lots of inside information about the country and its people. On the way back we drove through the old town of Funchal and learned a lot of details here too. Two very nice young people helped us to an unforgettable day. Definitely recommended
