“How awful was this...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We visited Lisbon last week on holiday and we decided to use the Yellow Bus Company - never again! 3 buses were missing which left us stranded for an hour and a half and then the bus we got onto broke down. The commentary was basically them trying to sell you other things from the company and music. We will never use this company again

Dear customer,

Thank you for your review and for choosing Yellow Bus.
We are sorry that the service provided did not meet your expectations and we do apologize for the inconvenience, however, in order to analyze the situation we would need additional information as the name of the tour, what time you joined the tour and where etc.
We hope that despite this experience, you had a nice time in Lisbon.

Thank you.

“Blue tour not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

My boyfriend and I are not used to visit the cities by bus but this time since Lisbon is built on 7 hills we decided to buy tours with Yellowbus. The blue tour wasn't great as you don't see the main attraction, only for the Oceaneario but you can easily go by bus or metro. So I wouldn't buy that again. To visit the city I would suggest the old trams. You can buy a green card valid 24 hours and you can take old trams, all buses, metro.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your review and for choosing Yellow Bus for your sightseeing.
We are sorry that the tour did not meet the expectations. The blue tour - tagus Tour covers the central Lisbon with its main avenues and beautiful squares as well as the monumental are of Belém with all the attractions linked to the era of the Portuguese Discoveries.
The Oceanarium is included in our Olisipo Tour. Our tickets guarantee also free access to Carris public transports, Aerobus service and many discounts.
On your next visit we are waiting for you also in Oporto, Coimbra, Braga, Guimarães and Funchal.
Thank you.
Best regards,
Your Yellow Bus Team

“Recommended!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I recommended to buy 48 hours Lisbon Premium 4 in 1 = 25 euro if you're in Lisbon. you can follow 4 tours for hop on hop off bus: Tagus Tour, Olisipo Tour, hill Tour ( use tramcar) and Belem Tour. The others advantages are discount 15-40% for Castelo de S Jorge, museum (Oriente, da Fado, marioneta, Padrao dos Descobrimentos) , oceanario. Justa lift. And free access to public transportation as trams, funiculars, and buses (carris public transports) and Aerobus ( to airport).

“We enjoyed this....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We paid €19 each for the duel tour (blue and purple lines). The blue line is much more interesting as a tourist but the purple line was worth doing too. I think that this is worth doing if you don't have very much time and you would like to see as much as you can. Their are lots of people at the main bus stop (Rossio) to help you with any questions you may have. Overall, a great way to see the city in one day!

“Amazing Lisbon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The yellow bus tour was absolutely amazing. I covered quiet a bit in the three days that I was in Lisbon.From the exotic Alfama, to historic Belem and Baixa/Chiado. Keep up the good work.
The ticket is economically priced and provides good value
