“Yellow Buses”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We got a 2 day pass for these buses for just 12 euros each. Very good value and an excellent way to see Funchal and Camara de Lobos. Top deck essential to really admire the scenery. Yellow route buses travel every 20 mins, Blue route not as frequent. Hop on and off as many times as you like. Saved a lot of walking uphill after a long day. Highly recommend to see the best of Funchal.

Would definitely not recommend using this company if you want to learn anything about Funchal.
What little commentary there was did not tie up with the buildings/area that the bus was passing. Rang the bell to get off bus at particular area we wanted to see but driver seemed to ignore us and stopped when/where he wanted to.

If you want to waste an hour of your day mainly listening to music, then this is the tour for you.

“just ok”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I guess we would have enjoyed this tour better had the weather been more co-operative. There really was not a lot to see....and when we got to the top of the "mountain" we could see nothing due to the weather.

“Commentary uninformative”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

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.

Reviewed October 24, 2012

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.
