I chose this over the Red City Sightseeing bus tour as I did not want to go to Camara dos Lobos as I had already been there twice. The Yellow Bus ticket includes two routes - one to Lobos and one not. I was very disappointed with the commentary. Firstly it was mainly music which kept being repeated. None of the buildings we passed were pointed out. On approaching a bus stop you were not told what you could do if you got off there. In fact the bus did not stop unless you actually requested it to. This also meant that when it ran ahead of schedule it would then stop and just sit for about 10 minutes. Would not recommend. On day 2 I used my ticket instead of taking the bus and then noticed some of the limited commentary I had heard on day 1 was missed out - so maybe the whole system isn't working properly. There was also someone who chatted on his phone for the whole trip which was very inconsiderate to others.

The Yellow Bus is excellent value and you can hop on and off as many times as you like within 2 days. The ticket also allows travel on the Blue Bus as well. The ear phones provided were not very good but that did not affect our enjoyment.

We used this service and found it very useful to give us a little extra knowledge. the ticket is 12 euros and lasts two days!!!! For this you can get on and off and much as you like within that period. You could also usr the yellow and blue lines. This is great value for money and very well organised.

We tried this last year and quite honestly it is such good value for money we did it again this year.

It costs €12 each for a two day ticket and you can get on and off as any times as you like in the two days – much cheaper than a taxi into and out of town, so even if you only use it for this it pays for itself in no time.

There are two lines; Yellow which just goes around Funchal and Blue which goes all the way to Camara de Lobos.
