We bought a 48 hour ticket which gave us plenty of time to use both routes and re-visit Funchal. The times and intervals of the buses were not great but the overall experience was good and great value.

Used the Yellow Bus tour on a 2-day 3 tour trip. This was good value for money and gave us plenty of inspiration to visit other places on the tour.

During our visit to Madeira we made two tours using the Yellow Bus Tours both of which were excellent. Knowledgeable guides make for a greater appreciation of the island. They are great value for money.

Bus tour as expected, commentary a bit boring, no interesting stories or facts really, just pointed things out. By the time we did this tour we'd already got our bearings of the old town, which is better by foot than bus, it's very easy to...More

Don't think you can use ticket on public buses! Buses stop at same bus stop and didn't see anyone with a 24/48 hr pass using public buses!
