What to expect
Make your way to the Praça da Figueira in central Lisbon, where you can present your voucher for a hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city. From the center, the route heads up the eastern edge of Lisbon, through a picturesque landscape of rolling hills and colorful neighborhoods. The highlight of the route is the ultra-modern Parque das Nações, site of the 1998 World Expo, and see the longest bridge in Europe, the enormous Lisbon Oceanarium, and futuristic architecture at the edge of the Tagus River. You also pass through the hilly, Bohemian neighborhoods of Chiado and Bairro Alto, packed full of glamorous cafes, boutique shopping, bistros, and galleries. And as you explore Lisbon, listen to stories and fun facts about the city on recorded commentary, with a booklet of discounts to monuments, museums, and activities to use along the way. Throughout the 24-hour period, enjoy access to the Aerobus that links Lisbon with the airport, the use of public trams, and use of the Santa Just Lift and Lisbon Funiculars. This independent bus tour concludes 24 hours after your first ride.

Please skip! The city isn’t made for buses
We are huge fans of hop on hop off buses. Lisbon is just not a city to accommodate it. The streets are narrow and many can only be traversed by small cab or tuk-tuk. We did 2 of the hop on and off routes - the purple which highlighted a modern city, shopping area then lots of driving to see nothing of interest. Took 2 hours due to traffic (not the 1:40 they said). Then we went on the blue route to see monuments by the sea that also took another 2 hours. The bus was packed, just barely stopped at bus stops and I watched 4 times when people were standing at a bus stop and driver took off without letting them on. There were seats, but if you weren’t standing on top of the sign, we drove away without them. We were too scared of not being able to get back on to get off. We finally bailed in a busy area for food. We thought we would jump in a tuk-tuk to get back to the cruise ship and our very nice driver took us through amazing scenes our bus simply couldn’t fit. We loved seeing overlooks, churches and how the locals love. We loved it so much we stayed with him for an hour seeing the sites. The tuk-tuks are electric so easy to get around on the old wobbly streets. It was great! And only 8 Euros a piece compared to the 22 Euros each for the hop on hop off bus. We would definitely do it differently next time and hire a Tuk-tuk for the day.

YELLOW BUS COMPANY IS A SCAM!! TOURISTS BEWARE!!
May 2019 • Family
In Lisbon, we got off our cruise ship and booked the Yellow Bus tour. What a mistake! The first bus that they try to get you to board just spends 3 hours to go to a mall, nothing else (who wants to go to a regular shopping mall when visiting Lisbon for a day???). The other bus going to the historic sites was at least a 2 mile walk from the ship (they lied and said it was around the corner). When we got there, there were at least 250 people waiting to get on a bus. After walking 2 miles, we had to wait around 90 minutes and fight pushing/screaming crowds to even get on one of the few buses that showed up. After talking to several other tourists, it turns out we all had the same experience: no buses showing up, our money taken without bus service, and the entire time wasted in Libson. Save your money. Yellow Bus Company is the biggest SCAM ever!!

Commentary hopeless
A good journey and interesting sights however almost all sights not even mentioned in the commentary. Was startling in its omissions. Had no idea what interesting structures, bridges, historic buildings and statues were. No information at all about what could be seen at the stops. Really failed in this regard which spoilt the trip. Comfortable bus although ear pieces can really hurt your ears after a while

Not worth it
Dec. 2018 • Friends
+ you get to see the wider east area of Lisbon + you can hop on/off, which gives you the possibility to stroll around (e.g. Oceanarium) - the bus was very dirty and the seats very uncomfortable - the headphones did not work - the sites commentary did not match (e.g. we heard about the railway station, and we got there some 30 minutes later, also, it seemed that the commentary varies between languages) It costs 16 EURO, but would be better to invest in those small "taxis" where you can also get your personal guide through the city.

Disappointing city tour
Oct. 2018 • Friends
The worst city tour I have ever been on. Embarkation was chaotic. No ticket given by the driver so could not get free access to trams/funicular or Santa Justa lift. No "exclusive discount book" given. The commentary gave no indication of upcoming stops except Campo Pequeno & C. Vasco de Gama, so if you wanted to get off elsewhere you were out of luck. The purple route we followed did not follow the route printed on their map, in fact the bus went so far (C. Vasco of de Gama) and then returned on the same route that it went out. If you like a tour of derelict factories an high rise apartment, then this is the tour for you.

oh my god...
Oct. 2018 • Couples
from the driver being late to the ticket seller telling you every 5 mins he was on his way and to go stand in some shade ( which may have well have been, "go away ive got your money") this was disappointing. The journey is along the main roads to nowhere. The "music" is some cater whaling pseudo country song on repeat, seemingly, about a blind women (NOT FADO as I hoped), I wish she was a mute woman, or I was a deaf man. the purple route is a waste of time. Walk up the narrow streets instead and save yourself a few bob. Or do as I did and throw yourself in the Tagus to escape

Poor service
Disappointing, grumpy reception by the driver, and god forbid if your ticket is lost while on the bus, they not give you a replacement. Even though he still had the voucher from the hotel with him, he refused to do anything.

Great overview, take care of the times
Nice tour with an audioguide - when you have earpods or recognized that free ones are offered at the entry of the bus. Many of the terminals' displays are not operable or offer a wild change of languages and annoying lengthy music breaks, but the content is, apart from that, really great and offers a lot of valuable information. Take care to not travel the last trip or while a local event takes place. We weren't too lucky in this regard as traffic was horrible, the trip has been massively delayed by traffic jams and we didn't dare to hop off as planned. The unplanned non-stop round-trip ( without any hop-offs) didn't even end where it started, but that was announced in advance, due to the festivities.
