We did the 3 in 1 tour today, boarding at the teleferico and gettting off at Camera de Lobos, where we spent about 1-2 hours. This included having lunch. There isn't actually a huge amount to see at CdL. The cafe where we had lunch was very slow because a party of 12 had come in just before us and ordered several courses. It must have taken 45 mins to actually get our food. They were equally slow in bringing the bill and we saw the yellow bus depart under our noses.
Despite having being told the buses run every 30 mins, the next one wasn't scheduled for another 1.30 mins! Luckily we worked out it must be turning round for the return journey and managed to get on it at the stop on the road immediately above where we had got out. We also stopped off at the Forum shopping centre but what time the bus actually came for the return journey was anybody's guess! Apparently the last one was 4 pm - ours came at around 3.50 pm. You have been warned!
The bus ticket is only valid for 24 hrs but apparently the cable car trip can be taken at any time. We are planning to do this tomorrow if this info is correct. I can only agree with the other people reviewing this service that the timing is dodgy, but in January there was at least very view people on the bus. Tip: Sit right at the front behind the windscreen if poss as it was very windy further back.

We bought a 3 in 1 ticket valid for 5 days via our mobile search as it was cheaper than the office or via a bus - beware ticket touts who charge full price. We used it every day as our hotel was on its route so it saved us walking both ways into town each day. The highlight was Cabo girao. We got on and off in several interesting points to explore further and walked along the promenade etc. It was a great way to see the sites and find the things we wanted to explore further. The drivers were very helpful. The commentary was okay but a bit limited. They could have mentioned quite a few more things and give more hints and tips. The earphones were quite uncomfortable so we used our own. They have combined two routes so actually you only get 2 in 1. There weren’t many people on the bus so we usually had a choice where we sat. At the moment due to the low passenger numbers both companies red and yellow could do well to combine as they must be loosing money - make it an organ expert bus! We managed to work out that the route takes about an hour and a half and that means a bus at each stop about every 45 mins - shame they don’t publish a timetable so that people have an idea what time to get to a bus stop.

Very good value for money, a 5-day 3 in 1 bus cost us €25 per person. The audio tour is good for little facts and information, but it’s very pleasant to sit up top on a nice day and just watch the beautiful landscape without having to listen. Nice to do for a day and much cheaper and less regimented than a guided tour. Lovely visits to Câmara de lobos, pico de Barcelos, Cabo Girao and Funchal, and much more, depending where you choose to hop off. Once you’ve completed the tour, it’s also useful to use as general transport, since it stops at many hotels and can transport to Funchal, whilst avoiding the walk. The only thing to watch out for is the timetable- supposedly a bus comes every 35 minutes or so, however most places do not have a timetable as to when you can expect a bus, so it is easy to end up waiting for a while, unsure when you’ll be picked up.

We were really disappointed by the Yellow Bus tours. Having been recommended them over rhe City Sightseeing tours, we bought a 48 hour pass. The commentary is dreadful. There is very little information, mainly music, and what commentary there is is badly read and really doesn't give you a good guide of what you are passing. In the morning the buses are every 1/2 an hour, but in the afternoon every 45 minutes with no timetables on the website or bus stops, so you find yourself just missing buses and waiting for a long time. All in all its not great value for money, especially as children are only up to 10 (since when is a 11 year old an adult).

Bus on runs every hour. No timetable at each stop, very unorganised , caused a lot of stress. This was the red bus. The yellow bus was more regular and had a timetable at each stop. One can purchase an octopus card for the local buses which I would highly recommend purchasing one

First time in Madeira and a good option for seeing the sights of Funchal out to Camara dos Lobos where there is a change required to a smaller bus for the Cabo Girao tour. First day we simply did the full circuit on the bigger bus. Second day we used the first bus to get out to change and off to Cabo Girao which was wel worth it. Other days (we had bought the 5 day ticket - the extra €3 was a no brainer for us) we used to get into town from our hotel. Worth the money and I’m sure the other bus companies do something very similar but for what we wants this was fine

As there are not many tourists as usual on the island the busses have been cut down so you have to wait longer for a bus. Because of this I couldn’t do the Cabo girao tour. I then tried to go a second time on the next day but even then the first bus left late so I couldn’t make for the Cabo girao connecting bus. There was another one after but I may not have made it back in time for my flight especially with how unreliable these busses are. So I wasn’t taking that risk. I would not really recommend this doing this until everything is back to normal and they have loads more busses running. For now I would say use local busses or walk. At least if your in a group a cab is good option as you can split the cost and better than waiting around at a bus stop.

I bought a five day ticket for the three tours well worth the money. Great views of the city and surrounding area busses were frequent so easy to catch. Very informative tour. I was unaware I had to change busses at Câmara de lobos to get to Cabo Girão but was easy to get back again as I had a five day ticket. For anyone going to Cabo Girão I would recommend going later in the day if there are cruise ships on the island as the little bus can get busy. Overall a great experience.

We walked from the cruise terminal and bought tickets for the 3 yellow bus tours. This was excellent value and got us around the city and out to the highest cliff in Europe (and the 3rd highest in the world!). Although there were 3 cruise ships in the port, there was never much of a queue for any of the buses. Similarly there was no queue for the gondola although we didn’t take it. The complete bus ride of 3 tours took just over 4.5 hrs and I think it gave us a very good overview of the city and some of the surrounding countryside. We may have beaten the queues coming here in January and I suspect everywhere gets busier in the summer. This is a lovely location, very green and lots of lovely flowers. The trip highlights how the land is landscaped and how the levadas are built to irrigate the land. Lots of bananas growing alongside grapes. We had time for a coffee and a glass of Madeira as we waited for the bus at the furthest stop (about a 40 min wait which was plenty of time to appreciate the view from the cliff top and get a coffee).
All in all, a very good way to spend the day if you are only here for a day on a cruise ship.

Unreliable. We paid for the 5 day 3-1 ticket which appeared cost effective but it turned out there is no time table other than stating that the service is every 45 minutes. After waiting 90 minutes we gave up and had just left when it turned up. There was no apology other than saying the other driver should have turned up. Not impressed!
