Very good value for money and a good range of trips. However, we found ourselves waiting about a bit. Went to Cabo Girao on the bus. What an experience! Great views on the way.

We chose this tour over the usual red one we'd had elsewhere. The tour we selected included Camara Do Lobos and Cabo Girao. It was good value for money. You change onto a smaller bus at Camara Do Lobos to reach Cabo Girao on steep...More

We ended up buying tickets for this bus service. You can buy daily passes, or passes for several days. We enjoyed taking the busses, especially sitting up on top. They take you from Funchal and north to the tourist attraction of the fishing village and...More

Great views but didn't book ahead via Trip Advisor... only took cash. Three different routes with various combo options. Info booth person along waterfront not helpful but good brochures.

Perhaps it was our mistake but we bought our Funchal tour ticket when there were two cruise ships in port totalling 6000 passengers. The Yellow bus ticket sellers happily kept on selling but the bus we took was full and stayed full. At some stops...More

Our hotel was not near the center but close to a Yellow Bus stop. It was a good way to get into the center, learning along the way. We thought we bought day tickets but it turned out we only paid for one day. We...More

We were able to catch the bus near to our hotel and started with a ride round Funchal, seeing so many sights from the top of the bus. We then changed buses near Pria Formosa and had a trip to Camara de Lobos, where we...More

Took us for a tour around Funchal. More music than description on headphones. Quite a patronising sketchy commentary I felt. Not impressed by speeding through dark tunnels. Not particularly interesting and all very average.

There are several stops within the cruise terminal area. The whole circuit takes about 75 minutes and busses run every half hour or so. You need to consider what fits in to your five hours. It is a good way to get a feel... More
