Jo Black BBC reporter
Hi Dennis and Tukxi, Jo Black and Joel Mapp would like to say thank you so much for adding a huge dose of fun to our wedding in Bath. It was such a laugh driving round Bath, tooting at tourists and wowing the locals. We couldn't believe how many people filmed and photographed us as we drove by! Obviously, the day gave us many special memories and spending time with you guys was such a giggle. Thank you so much. Best wishes. Jo and Joel xxxxxxx

Great to see you again and you rounded off our holiday in style by giving us a ride and taking my parents home up the notorious Lyme hills. See you again next year.
Emma & Carl Swanage Dorset
Thank you so much Tukxi for coming to our wedding. Tukxi picked us up from the church in Swanage after our wedding which was a complete surprise to all of our guests. We then went for a trip around Swanage town on the way to our reception venue. This was great fun and every one was clapping and waving. Tukxi then gave some of our wedding guests trips around town. All of our guests loved it and havent stopped talking about it since. Thank you Tukxi for helping make our wedding day so special :) xx
Tukxi says: One of my best ever weddings, had such a great time!

Mr Peter Hains world renowned fossil expert
Had a go in Tukxi from the Cobb to Church Street, I have to admit I thought I would hate it...How wrong could I be! It was great fun, the driver was a delight to talk to, who obviously loves the town and the people. I would recommend this to anyone, locals and tourists alike. In fact I have friends coming down to Lyme at the weekend and hope to give them a tour in Tukxi. Well done and good luck.
Tukxi says: It was a pleasure Pete!
Mike & Tina Le Clercq
We congratulate you on your enterprise. Just what Lyme Regis' residents and visitors need.
Could we have 3 signed photos with contact details to put in our guest information packs, so our guests make a booking, and see Tukxi in all her glory.
Many thanks, Cleveland B&B, Pound Street

The Family Muller, Germany
We visited Lyme Regis in July 2011. After a long walk along The Cobb, we were happy to see the blue Tukxi, which took us to the Parking up the hill. It was a lovely and fun experience at the end of a nice visit to the Pearl of Dorset. The Tukxi driver was a pleasant and agreeable guy. Thanks for the lovely time.
Tukxi says: My pleasure!
Ruby aged 2 & James age 8 from Liverpool

Tukxi says: There's only 1 Tukxi!

I love the Tukxi (Charlie aged 5)! I asked Mummy for a ride in the Tukxi after we went mackerel fishing-the mackerel enjoyed the ride too!The Tukxi man was very kind & funny and we had a really fun trip back and we didn't have to walk up the hill!
Thank you Mr Tukxi, I can't wait for the next ride! Charlie & Karen
Tukxi says: Cheers Charlie!
Adorable, eye catching, environmentally friendly & that's just Dennis! Turned up on time & even provided blankets for later return journey. So glad we were in Lyme Regis at the start of this fantastic venture. Go Tukxi.

I think that the Tukxi is a fantastic vehicle and so is the driver. I give my full support and desperately hope he gets a Hackney Carriage, for use in West Dorset.
Having Tukxi would be a great asset to Lyme Regis giving visitors and locals a journey they will remember. How unique!
Mr David Body, witheridge, Devon
How refreshing to see someone doing something totally original and bringing so many smiles to a South coast town. Well done, Lyme Regis. We look forward to our next visit!
Tukxi says: Cheers Dave!
I support Tukxi in his quest to become a Hackney Carriage in West DorsetI think its great, this area needs a little colour on the local roads.
Harry Tates Tapas Bar Lyme Regis
This Concept will be great for Lyme and I fully support him in his new venture. It just makes Lyme so different
Tukxi says: Fancy Spanish Tapas in Lyme Regis? then visit www.harrytates.co.uk
I imagine in the Summer Tukxi will be fully booked running people up the hills in Lyme and anything that frees up the in town parking is a HUGE plus (also very fond of seeing you out and about as you brighten up my day)
Mr D Riley
Looks like an ideal congestion busting, economical mode of transport. Good luck in your quest to become a Hackney Carriage !
It's an excellent alternative form of transport - a very enterprising idea which can only enhance both tourism and local businesses. Well done to Mr. Spacey.
Hey Tukxi! Can you make it to my wedding?
Monsiuer Gerard Rouquette
Superbe idee. Un petit taxi qui sait prendre le temps de vivre. Charmeur, depaysant, ce petit taxi respire le soleil, les vacances, la douceur de l'instant present.
Tukxi says: Mon Gérard plaisir, nos passagers français profitez d'une baladedans les Tukxi à chaque occasion!
I support Tukxi in his quest to become a Hackney Carriage in West Dorset I Saw Tukxi and couldn't resist his charms! A much needed service!! light hearted....just what we need !!!!
Lisa worthington Tandem Marketing
Tukxi has to be a part of the Dorset local and tourism offering. With the Olympics on the horizon we need to demonstrate that we can offer unusual and fun modes of transport for all to enjoy and leave positive memories about the host area for the sailing, wind surfing and cultural olympiad.

Best of luck in securing the license, Lyme needs you Tukxi!
Clicking on the 'I want to' above only allows one choice. I had several in mind but chose the Hackney Cairrage in WD as the priority. I think it would be an excellent novelty asset to Lyme and its surrounds. Good luck. Ayvin

What a fantastic attraction for Lyme Regis, so quirky and original! The tourists will love this and I'm sure it'll be fully booked during the summer

I like blue.................
The most exciting thing to come out of West Dorset for decades, It's just what the area needs.
I would like to see a small local enterprise have the opportunity to provide a much needed exciting service to locals and visitors to the area.

Good luck in your quest to become a Hackney Carriage. Local business like this needs to be supported by the council.

Tukxi is a great idea and will be an asset to the local tourist trade.
Actually, I was wondering if you want drivers? As an experienced biker and triker, I wouldn't have a problem with this, unless I had to use my right leg (which is false).
Mark Novak, Pasty Pesto Lyme Regis
I manage Pasty Presto in Lyme Regis, i think this is a brilliant additon to the area, full of charm and stands out as a very unique form of transport. brings a smile to your face! i would very much like to see Tukxi as part of the fabric of Lyme Regis.

Thanks very much for making the trip to my birthday meal so memorable. Best of luck with your new venture!
Lynne, Pat and Pru
Tukxi says: Happy birthday Lynne!
Used the wonderful Dennis and his TucTuc to get to an evening at River Cottage. It is the ONLY way to arrive - all crusties crumble at the sound of the klaxon and perfect music. Getting collected after a night of fun is even better - music, lights and the klaxon again. It's just got to be the Tuctuc every time. Thankyou Dennis - perfect.
Tukxi says: I think I enjoyed it as much as you!
Don & Yvette Courtney
Dear Dennis, Thanks for a couple of most enjoyable taxi trips last Tuesday. And such enjoyable company! Hope these snapshots might even be useful.
Tukxi says: Always happy to receive pictures from my passengers.
Sally Jane Lyme Regis
Hiya, Many thanks for giving us ladies such a splendid time last night to and fro to the golf club. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and the additional rugs to keep our knees and toes warm in the chilly late night air was really very thoughtfull of you. I hope Hazel sorts out with you re her special evening next week, her big birthday bash in regards to booking your fab tukxi.
Once again many thanks it was great.
Tukxi says: It was a real pleasure!

Thank you! We've written something nice about you on Trip Advisor, by the way - under St Cuthberts of Lyme review.
Hope to ride in your lovely tuk tuk again at some stage. We were VERY impressed by your site by the way - hadn't understood all the interesting Italian background to this mode of transport. And the music is great!
Tukxi says: Recommended on Trip Advisor & I'm not even an hotel!
Mr Phil Street Lyme Regis Town Crier
A great little vehicle and looks fantastic around the small streets of Lyme Regis. Something very different to catch the eye of the everyday person, whether living in or visitiing Lyme Regis. A fantastic idea for special occasions! Good Luck!

One of the most unique things in lyme regis to date, hope he doesn't run out of room for lymes locals!

Rob & Debbie Hamon, The Nags Head
Very often we cannot get a cab when customers are just going home within the Lyme and Uplyme areas.so I think Tukxi would be very popular for short journeys. Plus he is very attractive and unique.

Hi Tukxi, As part of my annual Summertime in Lyme column for the View From Lyme Regis I'm trying out lots of summer activities - fossil walks, etc - and writing about them to encourage others to take part. Could I arrange a tour of the town in the Tukxi and photo, which would then feature in my column? Great free publicity for yourself! Thanks, Francesca
The Mermaid shop & gallery Lyme Regis
As owners of a business in Lyme, we really believe that Tukxi is part of the solution to our town's traffic congestion issues.
We fully support innovative businesses in our town that enhance the eccentric and unusual feel of this quirky town.
I'm also desperate for a way to get my mother-in-law from Uplyme to Lyme, whilst giving her access to fresh air and keeping her out of my over-used motor car. http://www.mermaid-at-the-tudor.com/
Dawn from Venlake
It's been a great pleasure to have been one of the first to enjoy little Tukxi, I can't wait to hear you passing by my little office & brighten up my day!.... A great idea...an excellent choice of transport, so very eco-friendly! you both bring the Limelight to Lyme! Good Luck!

Hey Dennis, this is fabulous! Can't wait to see the little bee buzzing around Lyme. Wish you loads of luck and we'll definitely be calling on Tukxi x

Sally Jane Emm
I believe it to be a grand idea to use around Lyme Regis and will heartily recommend it.
Please use it day/evening and late nite. As I mentioned to you, taxis are not to keen on short journeys up and down from the Nags Head for instance to households close to the front and bottom of the town.
Tukxi is ideally suited to providing a fun and novel transport option for weddings, prom dates, and other special events.
