We had 3 taxi journeys in Madeira. The first a young man that picked us up talked non-stop all the way to our apartment. We were so tired from traveling and felt sick from windy roads could not even think to say . . . please be quiet. We wanted to look out the window and relax, surely the taxi driver should have realised that we would be tired after our flight . . .
Next time was on our way to Porto Moniz and the lady talked non stop again . . .
Really we like peace, silence and wonder . . .
Non stop for an hour. So bad was it that we canceled on the way back and would rather have a peaceful coach ride back (even though it took about 6 hours to get home) coach or bus only costs 6 euros each and this taxi was 45 euros. That is cheap for a taxi but I could not risk constant draining talking . . I am terminally ill as it is . . . goodness, where is the understanding.
On the way back to the airport from Funchal we booked a taxi with madeira-airport-transfers.com the man was an angel silent, peaceful helpful . . . not this company that I am reviewing. I recommend not the madeira island transfers taxi company

Rent a taxi, go where you want. Taxi driver is a kind of guide, friend, advisor. It is possible to rent a taxi for a whole day, arrange a trip to levada and go back to your place. Prices are moderate, service very convient.

We used the Yellow Taxis to get out and about during our stay in Maderia. Our hotel reception had explained the meter system, which was immediately used by all but one driver however he did so when reminded to by us. We found the service by all the drivers was very good taking us where requested quickly and efficiently. Most made suggestions of destinations which we were happy to listen too, some of which we undertook the drivers were also knowledgeable guides of the places visited.
We would recommend using the yellow taxis in Maderia if you wish to go directly to your destination or to undertake a specific personalised tour.

I'm glad I chose to do the tour by taxi! It's at your won pace and you don't have to be on the top of an open bus on those roads! Hector Azevedo, our driver was very polite, helpful, spoke English and took us to places outwith the normal tour. We got to go to CR7 Museum and the football stadium where he started his career. We were not rushed at any point. He even lent us money to pay to attractions, which wouldn't accept credit cards, and took us to a cash machine!
