Did not do this tour until late into our second week-we usually do these tours at the beginning. The first part took us into Funchal and a stop on the front. Then around the City with many stops at red traffic lights. This part was very disappointing as we had previously walked to all the places the bus went. The... More

A good place to start to get an overview of Funchal. Hop on and off at their designated stops for two days, blue bus, same company, but yellow also goes to Comoros de Lobos , all for 12 euros. Sit upstairs for best view, some have covered roof if it rains.

Yes you can hope on and off the bus around Funchal BUT you could walk to anywhere the bus takes you. The commentary is okay and tells you a little of the Islands history but you could read this in any guide. All the bus tours RED BLUE or YELLOW just drive you around the town for about 30 minutes...

Earphones given to listen to recorded guide. Interesting way to get around. Blue line goes out further and you can see more. Watch times finishes around 16.40. If you sit on the open top part, watch your head for leaves and branches, if you sit on right of bus.

We have taken bus tours in other cities in the world so we were looking forward to the one in Funchal; however, we were a bit disappointed. The commentary was not in-synch with the journey and did not point out "...on the left or on the right...". Often the piece of commentary was after you had past a point of... More

Used the Yellow bus over 2 days, as they were doing a promotion of 2 days, 2 routes for the price of one. Very good value at this price. A little confusing though, as they say there are 2 lines, Yellow and Blue, which there are, but the buses are all yellow and the only way to know the difference... More

Did the general yellow bus tours rather than the same priced red bus tours as yellow bus route tickets can be used across 2 days and red routes only one - for the same price of 12 Euros for adults and 6 for children (tho our bus driver didn't actually charge for our boys which was very nice of him)...

The round trip is great for viewing Funchal and not bad value for money. Two consecutive days for the price of the ticket so best to plan both days round the ticket. The audible headset is a great idea although it could have had more information to listen to.

Yellow bus with yellow or blue routes 12 euro for unlimited on/off for two days. Two days start from you first entry to bus. the driver will give you the ticket for your hotel voucher or buy on the bus. Same price for either. (Red bus is the same, but for 24hours only.) Yellow route every 1/2 hour Round trip... More
