Loved our tuktuk tour!

Luis picked my daughter and me up from our hotel and the fun began. He took us round the little cobbled alleyways of old Funchal, stopped for us so we could buy some cactus fruit, visited the old fort for photos, then off to the beautiful Palheiro Gardens where he waited while we took in the breathtaking scenery and spectacular tropical flora. Then more tours through Funchal and back to the hotel. Altogether about 4 hours, as the time in the gardens is flexible. Garden tickets are not included btw. The tuktuk is a great way to travel round with the breeze cooling you down, and the canopy down for the views, and having a very knowledgeable guide who went out of his way to accommodate us made for a perfect afternoon’s trip. Thank you Luis!
This is a must do when in Funchal!!

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!
