Great value for money.
Fantastic bus tour. Three routes and you can get a 48 hour ticket for €19 each. It takes you to the top of the island and all around Funchal. Excellent value.

Great way to see island
Dec 2019
The on and off bus was the best way to get around. We did all the routes and also went up to Cabo Girao. My family stood on the clear glass, but I do not like heights. I was the photographer.
I also liked shopping in one of the mallls.

Good value for money
Dec 2019
I have been to Maderia a few times and last time did the red bus, so thought l'd do the yellow this time.Staying at the Vida Mar hotel near the Lido and booking through the hotel l got 10% off. If you board about 4.30 you can use it until the same time next day, which l did. A whole trip takes about an hour depending on the traffic, you can jump on and off to see things. It stops by the chair lift to Monte which you could do then rejoin the bus. You have earphones and wi fi on board. The drivers speak English well. There is an English chemist near stop 7 if needed. They do an evening tour to see the lights, but you need to check their leaflet to see which nights its running. I was unlucky and missed it due to a marathon, its not every night. A good way to see the town if your first visit.

Nov 2019
My wife and I decided to do this tour one cloudy morning.Ticket office was next to our hotel and the seller gave us a map and showed us how to use the 3 buses.The 1st one follows a yellow route and takes you all around Funchal centre then up higher for some fantastic views,it then returns back on itself and you then get off at stop 14 I believe,cross the road to get the blue route along the coast.You get off at a little village Winston Churchill frequented and catch a little single decker bus to take you up the highest cliffs in Europe.You have to be quick at this stop because some ignorant people will try to barge you out the way to get on.This part of trip should be done early morning as it clouds over early afternoon and you can't see anything from skywalk.Journey back along the coast lovely and definitely a must do.We paid 19 euro each for 48 hour ticket but can probably be purchased cheaper in advance.

Arrival was okay but not the greatest customer service, the ninety minute tour was rushed and uncomfortable. Only one headset was working so we had to share. We were glad to get off at the end, it wasn’t the best experience we’ve ever had I’m afraid.

Visit to Madeira
Oct 2019
Really enjoyed taking this trip on the Hop-On-Off Bus Tour. We started at our fabulous Hotel, the Enatol Lido to Funchal town. It was a good guide of the interesting places to visit. Then drove along the west coast to Camaraderie de Lobos. This is a very pretty Bay and fishing village, and well worth stopping for lunch. Then got the bus back to our hotel.

24 hour pass.
We bought this as part of a deal when we went on the cable car. We were able to use the pass over a 24 hour period. Had a great trip on day one the weather was great and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The next day the weather was not good, therefore we decided to do the trip again in the morning , as there was little for us to do in Funchal in the rain. Unfortunately, the bus did not have enough covered seating on the top deck - 4 seats only which was not good as the weather had been overcast for some time. Ironically I noticed that the next day which was sunny, the buses had the covers over a lot more of the top deck!!

RIP off tour
Aug 2019
Paid for the tour but the bus was due to pass our stop at 10:30 . It arrived at least 20 minutes late. The commentary was not running in sync with the sights. Very little time to get off apart from the long stops which the driver made occasionally. Even stranger was at the end of the route when he has to reverse and do a three point turn to carry on. The commentary was not actually of any use due to it being used to sell things but as said earlier was not in sync. Unusual for an open top bus to stop and pick up locals who were heading downhill without charging!!!

Great tour
This is a really good way to get your bearings when you arrive. Takes you all around Funchal to places you might never walk to. Great views and good commentary to tell you all about the places you are seeing. There are a couple of other routes you can go on as well.
