We bought the 48 hour hop on hop off ticket including the return cable car for 28 euros. Really good value as the cable car is 15 euros if bought at the station. We used the bus to go into Funchal, also North through the villages and the blue line to Camara De Lobos which was well worth a visit

We just went on the Funchal tour, which cost 12 euros from hotel reception. The ride is hop on and off so is a great way to see the main landmarks. You get a free pair of earphones as well to listen to a great description of the tour.

We bought a 3-for-1-deal, which cost 15 Euros when bought on the bus. We started out on the trip to Camara de Lobos and Cabo Girao, which was a nice tour, but the recorded commentaries were brief, and always abrupted by random clips of probably Portuguese music. When these songs started, the sound level doubled, so we had to tear... More

Just been on the Yellowbus Funchal Tour. It was only €12 each but even that was a waste. The recorded commentary was so boring. Funchal is such a nice city I'm sure they could have found something more interesting to say. To make matters worse the bus broke down. We ended up waiting for the next bus to come along,... More

Great value for money.Get the 3 in 1 48 hour ticket and you can spend two days on the bus doing two different routes.At a loose end one day we spent nearly all day on the bus,really enjoyable.

Good, regular service and not bad value at €15 for 48 hours. Only gripe was the bus nearly drove past us after we had waited about half an hour for it. Recommend but give the drivers a massive wave to make sure they stop.

The city sight seeing buses seem to be appearing everywhere. This one in Funchal is not worth the money. Terrible commentary does not help. Also the tickets are sold to you on the basis you can use them the next day as well. Not true. If your ticket has 12.00 printed on it you can only use it up to... More

We took the Yellow Bus Hop-On "Hop-Off 3-In-1" bus service (15 Euros each for a whole day - it's the blue service) which does a loop all around Funchal and onto Camara de Lobos. From there, a smaller bus (included) takes you all the way up to Cabo Girao. You are also given your own set of earphones to plug... More

A very good and cheap way to see the area around Funchai, it is worth doing at the start of your visit (we were first timers) to get the lie of the land
