Audio Equipment broken or missing, long wait for buses, narrative out of synchronization with actual location, insufficient number of Stop Buttons on the bus, one needed to stand and move about on the bus whilst bus was in motion to have the driver stop.

Funchal tour lasts about 90 minutes. It has headphones with commentary in various languages. A reall good introduction to the town. Includes a trip to a great vantage point and the west of the town with all the big hotels.

We purchased out tickets for our hop on and off trip around Funchal and weren't disappointed. As usual with red bus, they were on time every time and we had their clear map pointing us in the right direction. Drivers were a bit grumpy though...More

This is a very convenient way to see Funchal and, at 18 euros for three different tickets, it is good value. The bus was clean and comfortable but the service could be better. In a marked contrast to the helpful lady in the ticket kiosk,...More

Open top buses travel one way round Funchal. Great to get down into the marina, port area and town centre. Also to get round to the Forum shops, attractions and a lovely fishing village where you change buses to go up to the glass platform....More

When we take hop on hop off buses, we like to stay on for the entire ride and then go back to places that we find most interesting. So, this is what we did. The city itself is nestled in a great natural amphitheater, facing...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
There are lots of web pages that say that purchase of a 48 hr Funchal yellow bus hop on ticket includes being able to use it on yellow public buses for the first 24 hrs. Is this correct and if it is and you've bought online, can you use the printed voucher on public buses before validation on a hop on hop off bus?

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!
If you click on the link for the Santa Cruz hop on it states that it goes from central Funchal. Is this correct as none of the listed stops are in Funchal?
