There are 3 buses that you can hop on - hop off for 24 hours. Each bus takes a different route and is punctual and clean. There could be a few more running as I had to wait quite a time for the 'blue route'.

We took the Yellow Bus tour from central Funchal to the Skywalk at Cabo Girao in the neighboring council of Lobos. The cost was 12 euros a head. Tours run every 35 minutes. The recorded commentary (available in several languages) was hard to find on the dial and harder to hear. We gave up. The route winds up through the... More

This tour offers 2 routes, one to funchal town and the other to the opposite direction where there is another shuttle bus that takes you to the top of the cliff for the sky walk. The tour destinations are great but the buses need some upgrading. The headphones on the bus often didn't work and when I finally found one... More

The lady at the ticket office was very helpful providing options of what was available and the pick up locations were convenient for our hotel. We purchased a dual ticket for one day on the bus and a return trip in the cable car and received a discount and feel it was value for money. We could have used the... More

Yellow or Red, they go about the same route. It is a hop on hop off bus so in a day you see plenty. We sat on the Red Bus for a whole circle which took 1 hour 30 minutes with some beautiful scenery and breath taking hills. Listening through little ear pieces ,no good, would have been better with...

This was 15 Euros well spent. One day we went on the yellow route that takes you all around town and up hill high above Funchal for great camera view. You can hop on & off at each stop, buses every 1/2 hour. So if you walk a bit from many stops then there are several interesting things to see... More
