Did the yellow boat tour in June 2015 at a cost of 17€ each. Trip lasted around 1.5 hours and gave fantastic views of the city. Went down the river and under and around 25th April Bridge. Well worth doing though some narration would have been good to tell us what we were viewing. Reasonable priced wine and beer available... More

Great way to see the city and get around. Opportunity to get on and off which is awesome! Can explore what more to see or what areas not worth seeing. If in the city for ahort amount of time this is perfect!

I had an incredible time sightseeing in Lisboa with the Yellow Bus tours. We did the 'Lisbon 3 in 1' package which was valid for 48 hours, around 20 Euro per person. My travel companion and I had a fabulous time with the 'hop on, hop off' aspect. The bus is a large double decker bus with an open top... More

We asked our hotel to organise this on our first day so that we could get to know the city. The buses were frequent and the on/off really works. Family were joining us later in the week and it was so useful to be able to have some knowledge of what was where before they arrived. It helped us too... More

The tickets which are available from a kiosk along the river bank near the main Praca do Comercio square at Terreiro do Paco cost 17 euro .Nothing in my view compares to a river view of a city and its possible to get photos and make films that would be otherwise unachievable by just walking along the river bank. I... More

I have been on bus tours in many cities. This company seems to have gone downhill. They use recorded tours but don't hand out head phones. The drivers do not seem to care about the customers. Generally a bad experience.

We bought this tour and travelled two of the lines on the first day. The recorded history of the sites was okay but since none of the stops were announced nor marked well at all you had to guess when to get off. The second day we wanted to take the tram around the city. Got on at stop 2.... More

We paid 34 Euro for a Red Tram Tour of Lisbon yesterday. This is run by yellow bus tours. We bought the tickets from a shop and set off to find the tram stop. We waited for nearly an hour and when the driver did condescend to appear he said nothing nor could I get an explanation from him as... More

Took the 4 in 1 premium tour. The Tagus, Belem and Hills Tramcar tour were all excellent, easy to hop on and off and required and tour the areas that you want to investigate more. Excellent value especially when booked on line. Don't forget that the tickets also cover the funicular railways, elevators and standard buses and trams. The Olisipo... More
