What a brilliant 3 hours. Wilson our driver was very good and knowledgeable about the trip. The views we saw and the time spent in the Nuns valley were excellent. The trip was well worth the money.
Great time!

My tour guide Wilson gave me the best tour into Nuns Valley with local knowledge and history, as well as being sensitive to my concern over heights. It was like a day hanging out with an old friend!
Great transport. Great place to visit. Great guide.

Great tour to Nuns’ Valley with Wilson who was so much more than a driver. This was our third visit to Madeira so we wanted to do some familiar things in a different way and this was a good choice. The Tukxi is a brilliant way to travel as being slower and open you take in so much more of what’s around you. Thank you Wilson for a very enjoyable and informative morning.
The high point of our visit to Madeira.

This was a brilliant tour to the Nuns Valley travelling by Tukxi with our excellent guide Kat. The trip would have been good, with fantastic views and amazing terrain but it was made really special by our Polish guide Kat. She was very knowledgable and a very skillfull driver plus great company. We came away feeling that this was easily the best day of our visit. Highly recommmended!

we had a lovely tour by tukxi up through funchal and into the mountains , there was just the two of us , which is the main reason for booking , that and the novelty of the vehicle , it was just perfect !! we was collected from the cruise port by a lovely friendly and knowledgeble guide , he seemed to genuinely enjoy his job and had a wide depth of history and key facts about the places we visited , he made sure we wasn't rushed and the whole tour felt just right , we also had the chance to visit an old fort , again we was dropped right off in the grounds , and the guide got some lovely photos for us , it was a lot of fun and so much more personal than a bus tour , i would consider this kind of tour again around a different part if we returned , and of course the added bonus about pre - booking was the collection right from outside where the cruise ship dock , funchal town itself is a good 20 minute walk , so it was nice to have it all organised and confirmed before our holiday .
