This was my husband’s favorite tour on our recent transatlantic cruise and one of my two favorites. Our party of four certainly enjoyed our four hour tour thanks to our excellent driver! His love of Madeira was evident as he drove us around this beautiful island. Speaking excellent English, he related the history of Madeira while answering al our questions.in addition to all the sites we wanted to see and was very patient whenever our friend stopped to shop. He showed us beautiful sites of which we were unaware. How I wish all our tour guides were as wonderful as our driver. Daniel was not available but his substitute was outstanding! This is an excellent tour at a very inexpensive price and I would highly recommend it.
Our driver did such a great job showcasing Madeira that my husband can not wait to return to this beautiful island and of course we will be using Daniel’s Taxi.

We used Daniel Taxis for 3 journeys on our stay in Madeira after arranging via email with Eusebia. She was extremely helpful with her replies and suggestions to us, our quote was also €120 cheaper than we had from another company for all 3 trips. Taxis were always ready and waiting for the time we had booked and each driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended if you require transport!
Thank you Eusebia and Daniel!

This was the fifth time we have used Daniel Taxi, they give great service and they are always there on arrival at Funchal Airport. We take a small mobility scooter with us and the always help to get it in and out of the Taxi. Will use them again on our next visit

This is the worst private taxi company i have hired in many years of travel and would not recommend.
When i booked first of all , i had bad vibes with the amount of time it took for any correspondence to any questions.
When we arrived i was waiting outside for over half an hour for our driver, at this point i had to call the office incurring roaming charges, only to be told he has been waiting inside, at this point the driver appeared walking across from the car park, so he was never inside as i was checking myself.
A few days before our return back to the airport i was informed that the cost of the return trip had gone up due to fuel price rises, despite me having an agreement for a return journey price.
So all in all not a very good experience and would not use again.

Dear Goonerne, Thank you for your review. We're so sorry that you had such a bad experience with our company, which left you with a very bad impression about us. Even though we take so much care with the services we provide, sometimes things go wrong and we totally understand you feeling unhappy. I must admit that sometimes I do in fact take long to reply to our customers which I apologize, but that's because usually I have lots of emails to reply. About the driver being late, well... they know that they have to be at the Arrivals hall in good time to meet the clients, so he should have been more careful. Concerning the price increase, we know it's upsetting and we tried to keep our prices unchanged, however we reached a point where our prices were no longer viable. Finally, I'm hoping that you reconsider your decision of not using our services again. Best regards, Eusebia

Not sure where to start. Mr Daniel is really great guy and so helpful in any possible way. We have booked two trips - one for peaks and one for levada. We have arrived on peaks but the weather was awful so Mr Daniel just took us for levada without any problem. Also he was always on time when we needed pickup (if you finish faster then expected, you can always call him). He told us a lot of stories about places we have passed by and even suggested what local restaurants were worth trying. Also it is worth mentioning his wife, which very quickly answered all our email questions (fluent English - no problem with communication at all). It is definitely worth booking his services and again big thanks for them to showing us a big part of Madeira !

We booked Daniel Taxis via email with Eusebia for our walking group in advance of our trip. The response was really rapid and helpful in working out the best transport for our group size from Funchal to Pico Arierio and back. We decided to re-schedule the day of our walk around the weather and this was arranged for us, even on a bank holiday. All worked brilliantly. Really great driver, very comfortable bus and very competitive price too. Highly recommended!!

We had booked Daniels Taxi for a day in the Mountains as my friend wanted to do some walking up in the mountains at Pico Arieiro and the only way up the was by taxi or hire car. We picked the wrong day, There was poor visibility due to cloud and rain, so the original plan had to be abandoned. We then left it to Daniel, and what a day. I have been to Maderia over 17 times since 2005, and he took us to places up in the mountains, which yiou could never do on a set tour. He also knew where the better weather was, and took us for lunch at a local resurante in Machico which served local food which my friends said was the best meal they had in Maderia. Daniel mad a bad day great with his local knowledge. It was so good we have rebooked him for another day out soon. Also I have used this firm for transfers from the Airport and again a great service. Thanks Daniel

We booked 3 days tours in Madeira with Daniel and had a fantastic time on all of the days that we went with him. He was always on time, friendly, knowledgeable about history and places in Madeira. We learned a lot from him about Madeira. Daniel was always enthusiastic about stories he told. He was not just a taxi driver but more like a tour guide. He showed us nice viewpoints along the route and tried to tailored the tours to our liking. His Mercedes Benz taxi was always clean and very comfortable to sit. 3 days tours with him felt really short as time flew by so quickly when you had so much fun. We highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is interested in highly a car with a driver to take you around Madeira.

I arranged 2 tour itineraries for 90 people in 6 vehicles, each with a guide. The tours were very enjoyable, and Madeira was a beautiful place to visit. The price for the tour was very reasonable. Planning the tour was made easy by Eusebia who was very responsive. The guides did a great job and we enjoyed the tours very much. There were 2 things that did not go as planned: 1) the meeting location changed but we were not told so that delayed us by about 20 minutes and 2) the 2nd tour was supposed to do the Monte Toboggan ride but they were closed. Apparently they are usually open on Sundays with a cruise ship in port. Our tour operator should have confirmed this before our arrival but did not. We also had to pay for the tour in Euro cash which is difficult to coordinate with 90 people. But I knew about this in advance. It would be better to allow payment by credit card even with a small increase in price to cover any credit card fees. I recommend this tour and tour operator.

We visited Madeira in August via cruise ship, and family members wanted to do the Toboggan ride. One of the party has a disability so we wanted a taxi to take us up the hill and for a short trip after. I contacted the company via their website and quickly received a reply with a very acceptable quote. The company were very efficient in answering questions and queries.
We were picked up on time by our driver Daniel in a beautiful modern minibus. What a lovely man Daniel is, speaks very good English and an excellent driver. I asked him to take me to a bank first to get some money and then to the cable car to travel up to the Toboggan. Daniel explained that this wasn't a good idea and that we should go directly to the Toboggan site before the queue became too big. We took his advice and only queued about 40 mins whereas others we spoke to later had queued for over 2 hours!! We also got onto the cable car very quickly to go back down only to find huge queues there to go up the mountain. We'd have been stuck there too if we hadn't taken Daniel's advice!
As part of our hire Daniel then took us on a scenic tour to the Nuns Valley. His local knowledge of the places, plants and wildlife was superb and really made our visit memorable.
If you're travelling to Madeira and need a transfer or tour contact Daniel at Madeira Taxis -- you won't regret it
