“The bus didn't run!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We came to Coimbra yesterday, and took this tour - bought our tickets on the bus at 15:07 (3:07pm). This ticket is good for 24 hours. The tour yesterday was fine, and we decided to take it again today because we had time before leaving the city. The buses run every hour from 10:00 with a 2 hour break at noon, and they don't run on Monday, or May 5. Today is Thursday, June 13, and we waited for the 10:00 am. Bus for 1/2 hour. Went to. Tourist bureau where they phoned and reported that it wasn't running today. Our hotel desk had the same information when we got back.
We know Portugal is in financial difficulty, but this kind of thing doesn't benefit them. We are here for 14 more days, and will certainly use other tour companies.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your review and for choosing Yellow Bus.
We are very sorry for the problem occurred, indeed, the sound system broke down and we had to suspend the operation on 13th June because we only have one vehicle in Coimbra and it was not possible to fix the problem immediately.

We hope that despite this situation you had a nice time in Portugal. On your next visit we're waiting for you also in Lisbon, Oporto, Braga, Guimarães and Funchal.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Your Yellow Bus Team
