Friendly driver helped us choose best ticket so made us of it on the tram ( not tram 28 as it was so busy and the queue was ridiculous) and the funicular as well as the old and modern tour. Have used other sight seeing buses before and this was not as good in terms of information. When we got on the old bus tour the commentary did not work for a while and then was hit and miss! Good way to get around but not overly informative.

The 'modern' tour is a mammoth waste of time. The Aquarium (Oceanario) is well worth a visit but just get there using the metro or rail connection to Oriente. Otherwise expect to 'enjoy' hours or irritating music (unless you like Fado) and a ride through some pretty grim and derelict buildings. The other routes are a little more interesting although the loop to the zoo is again a total waste of time. The bus needs to pause at sites of interest so relevant commentary is heard at the relevant time...not half a mile down the road. Improvement needed I'm afraid.

We really enjoyed the yellow bus. We got the 48hr ticket and that included three routes and free trams, elevators and funiculars. Brilliant value. We found the buses reasonably clean. On one of the buses the commentary did not work on one of the sockets. The drivers are a bit miserable. But otherwise, we never had to wait for more than 20 minutes for the bus and found the routes interesting (albeit, a bit cold up deck!).

I ignored all of the 1-star reviews, I wish I didn't! Please don't do what I did.

I haven't written a trip advisor review in at least 5 years but had to say this.

I bought tickets for 6 of us when we visited Lisbon on a cruise, the bus tour only visited the cruise port every 2 hours but we thought that would be okay. We waited and waited and stood in the right place.

We were tracking the bus on our phones when it went RIGHT PAST US. We thought maybe the bus would turn around and come back, but it never did. The app updated to show that it had passed our port and was onto the next one.

I'm now trying to fight the company for a refund for 6 of us. They aren't replying to my emails and I've wasted a LOT of time and money here.

Please don't make this mistake. Lisbon Yellow Bus if you're reading, please give me my money back!

Rude, Unprofessional, and worst experience of trip. These people were dismissive, indifferent and kept telling me I didn’t have a ticket although I showed them the ticket. The woman told me that tickets needed to be printed which makes no sense when you can buy online and I was showing her the ticket on my phone and the man just said oh well and left. There is no way I would recommend anyone spending money with a company like this who would take your money but not actually provide services. Pick any other company but this one.

Ordered the tickets and received vouchers. However the vouchers need to be exchanged in the bus or in the yellow bus shop before you can use them.

Incovenient, but no problem right? However, the bus uses a different schedule than shown and hardly drives (sometimes per hour, sometimes an hour and a half, and last bus at 19.00 at night.) We were not near the YB shop so looked for a bus. It took long so we tried to call the YB phone number on the flyer. Duribg office hours. Wecalled Multiple times with each time an out of office reply, in Portuguese which seems unhandy for a tourist focused service.

Once we finally (waited an hour and a half at a designated stop) found a bus to exchange the tickets, they only changed oceanaria tickets, so we could not enter the fenicular. Aside from the bus and the central yellow bus store the ticket cannot be activated ore used anywhere. The tourist info shops cannot help you either. 48 hours...not a single usefull moment for this ticket.

Next time? Get the lisboa card or the red bus, it drives way more frequent.

Really enjoyed the opportunity to book this tour - provided a great way to see the entire city. Both the blue and purple routes were very informative. The blue tour was the old part of the city and the purple was the modern area of the city. We took both tours to get a good idea of the city and then as we had a 48 hour pass the next day we concentrated on places we want to visit longer - like Belém district and the Jorges castle.

The first day trying to get on the bus was not as simple as you would expect. The website on my mobile could not bring up an up to date map showing the stops so we had to ask a retailer who was selling the tours and they told us to just go down the street, this turned into a long hike as there were no stops along this road and when we finally reached a place to get on the bus, there was no timetable to be found nor did anyone in the surrounding areas know about timings either. After 2 hours of faffing about, we got on to a bus and got our tickets handed to us at a kiosk in the middle of the city. The buses themselves are in a decent state of repair but a few of them are quite rattly and in need of repair. The stops are not too bad but I feel that they stop needlessly far from some of the sites you would actually wish to see. Overall I was happy with the tours but I think in future I would just take the metro as it goes to most of the places and is a lot faster and more reliable with timetables.

We bought a 2 day pass with Hilltop Tram tour and elevator included online. Presented voucher and were given tickets and got on first bus. When we tired Tram tour in the afternoon we waited near an empty Tram for 20 minutes. When allowed to board we were told our ticket didn’t include it. After waiting so long we agreed to pay an extra 20 Euro not to have to trudge pack to our hotel. Reprinted booking and took it back and were rudely told it was not their problem. Buses we did get on had useless audio that gave you a headache with static. Drivers were generally rude and unprofessional. This lot just don’t care. Avoid!

We bought a 48 hour bus & boat ticket for €30 we got on the bus at the terminus near the restaurados metro stop went around the corner sat at another stop for about 15mins. When we did get moving the audio advertised yellow bus tours other services and we thought once we get to points of interest it will give some information. Sadly we were wrong we got caught in heavy traffic and there seemed to be an issue where the route was affected as we had to turn back and then we were getting further and further from the city out on dual carriageway not pleasant on an open top bus with no information being given. We were on the bus for over and hour and a half eventually getting to Belém which is beautiful but not what we thought we were doing. We wanted a tour of the city not a trip. The lack of information was disgraceful and it was such a waste of money. We had planned on getting on the boat that day but neither of us wanted to risk it after the horrendous bus trip. I would not recommend this company I assume something went wrong on the day but the lack of information is unacceptable and wasted a huge amount of our time in Lisbon. We spent €30 on something we could have spent around €4 on the train to get to Belém.
