Decided on a whim to have a trip with Tukxi and so glad we did. We had a great, friendly, and knowledgable driver called Daniela. She was lovely, taking photos of us, answering our questions and giving us lots of interesting facts about the sights of Funchal. We chose the 30 minute trip and thought it was really good value for money. A real fun way of seeing the streets of the town . Thanks Daniela!

Our first experience of a tukxi. It was a bit bumpy but not excessive. It is an excellent way to see parts of Funchal that you could easily miss on foot. We took the panorama tour which went through the old town and then up to a high point overlooking Funchal with fantastic views. Our guide was Miguel who was brilliant - very knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful as well as speaking good English. Can thoroughly recomend this form of sight seeing. You probably would not want to do it for more than 1 to 1.5 hours.

We did not take take any shore excursion when our ship stops for a day in Funchal, and decided to do it on our own.

The city center is pretty, they are celebrating their Flower Festival so we really enjoy our morning and have delicious pizza at the open air cafe.

Then we took a stroll towards the cable car station. However, we feel the cost (30 Euros return per pax) is just too expensive, we have been to many cable cars anyway.

By chance we saw some three wheelers nearby, and Luis offered us a two hours tours covering all the three old towns of Funchal, including the Statue of Jesus in Garajau. All for just 50 Euros (for the two of us)! The offer is too good to be missed, and so we agreed.

We glad we did. Luis is an able driver and a good guide. He explains, answers questions, helping with taking photos etc. We really enjoy the experience! We were able to see and drive along many small streets with the three-wheelers, which we will never be able to do with the usual tourist bus or even a taxi.

Very happy!

Was a bit dubious about trying tukxi thought it would be to bouncy but it wasn't too bad at all. Daniella was knowledgeable and a great driver. We went to Camara de Lobos going to places we would never dare take a car and at a leisurely pace that suited us both.
People waved and laughed as we drove pass them, we didn't feel self conscious but just really enjoyed ourselves, it was a fantastic morning with our own personal guide.
When we come back next year we will take another Tutxi trip, hopefully with Daniella as our guide again.
It's certainly an experience worth every penny.
