What to expect
Make your way to a centrally-located departure point in Funchal, where you present a voucher for tickets on the hop-on hop-off bus tour. A highlight of the route is Câmara de Lobos, a tiny fishing village that’s wrapped around a quiet harbor. Watch for whales along the coast, and soak up the historic atmosphere of the coastal community, which has long inspired artists. In Câmara de Lobos, you may switch to the shuttle bus if you'd like, continuing to Cabo Girão. See some of the most dramatic and highest sea cliffs in Europe. Walk to the end of the Skywalk Lookout Point for views from 1,903 feet (580 meters) above the edge of the water, and learn about the ancient volcano that formed the cliffs, which overlook Fajã dos Padres, Câmara de Lobos, and Funchal. This full-day hop-on hop-off bus tour is fully customizable, and you have as much time as you wish to explore and enjoy each destination, with discount vouchers for some of the top sites along the way.

Worthwhile but misleading description
Sep 2020
The shuttle bus was on time and worked well. However, be aware the 'more information' tripadvisor link describes the yellowbus hop on/hop off tour starting from Funchal (which includes the shuttle extension) as do many of the reviews. This is misleading because this ticket is for the shuttle only which operates between Camara de Lobos and Cabo Girao.

Fortunately we spotted the departure point described on the ticket, and it was easy to get to/from Camara de Lobos to pick up the shuttle.

Great day out!
Oct 2019 • Family
Booked a two day hop on hop off tour on the yellow line bus which takes you part way to the viewing platform 580 metres above sea level. The bus takes you to a small fishing village where you meet a connecting mini bus for the 15 minute drive up the cliff face through some spectacular scenery. You can then spend as long as you like enjoying the panoramic views out and below you through the glass platform. The fishing village is also lovely to walk around before returning back to funchal. Must mention the yellow bus company ticket seller who has the biggest and friendliest smile on Madeira....so take a bow Andreina....so helpful thank you.

Yellow bus trips
Sep 2019 • Family
We went on a yellow bus tour, purchasing the tickets at midday on day one and using them until midday on day three. The ticket was valid for 48 hours. Bought the ticket at a kiosk along the promenade for €19 per adult called a "3 in 1", as it enabled us to use the yellow line, the blue line and to also take the small bus you pick up at Camara de Lobos to do the Cabo Girao tour..to do the Cabo Girao tour you must take the blue line and get off at bus stop 12. You then swop buses to board a small bus. There is a bar at this place where you can break your journey, overlooking the sea. Cabo Girao is a high place overlooking the sea where you can walk on a glass platform to see the sea beneath. The driver gives you an hour but since buses are so frequent,it doesn't matter how long you stay, as you can just catch the next one to go back to board the bigger coach.
The Yellow Bus operates two lines, and you can see which one it is on the glass at the front of the bus, and this determines which route it takes. In some places you can catch either yellow and blue routes, but not at all bus stops, unless you are along the promenade.
You get headphones to listen to a running commentary in various languages.
If you use both the blue and yellow routes, you more or less take in all of the island worth seeing.
I thought it was great value.

Hop on hop off......way to go
Jun 2019
We got the five day pass for an extra 6 Euros and used the bus 4 out of 5 days. Good commentary and most sites/areas covered. The glass platform is not huge but you get good sense of the height. Would recommend, no extra charge for this either on the day we went. Great to hop off and explore as things take your fancy.

Excellent tour
Mar 2019 • Couples
This is the only hop-on-hop off bus that has the Cabo Girao as destination. You have to change bus at Camara de Lobos, but the buses corresponds nicely. The buses taking you all the way to the Cabo Girao are smaller than the regular yellow buses, but are also more comfortable. We also took the regular town tour, with the regular problems of having the ear-plugs to function properly. In these buses, also there were silence between each time new information were given, which make you think the system had stopped working. Music in between would have been better.

Take the cheaper option but find two good days.
Nov 2018 • Couples
We bought the tickets at a travel agent (18euro) not far from the Vidamar Hotel. Plan your start to coincide with two consecutive days of fine weather as you only have 48 hours to use them. The yellow bus tour was basically around Funchal and the yellow/blue route was to the west with the option of the extended tour to Cabo Girão and the glass viewing platform. This is the only stop on the extended tour from Camara de Lobos, at which you have to transfer to a smaller bus. You have plenty of time here to view, snack and pick up souvenirs. You pick up the yellow bus return from where you were dropped off. On our return a girl from the café told us the bus was due in 30 mins. Had we gone into the café we would have missed it, as it arrived within a couple of minutes, if you do, then it returns 5 mins later on the road above the drop off point. Several of our fellow travellers had noticed the bus going but found the bus stop above.

Too much time wasted
Jul 2018 • Couples
Picked up the yellow bus in Funchal to travel to Camara de Lobos. Here you have to transfer to a smaller yellow bus as the roads up to Cabo Girao are very narrow in places.
Spectacular views on the journey up which was well worth it. Return bus runs around every 40 minutes or so we were told. It gives you enough time to step out on the viewing platform and get some photos as well as a quick browse in the 2 souvenir shops. Really enjoyed the view and experience. Did not have to wait long for return bus to Camara de Lobos. Now for the bad bit... Wait at Camara de Lobos for return to Funchal was somewhere in the region of an hour which somewhat spoiled the overall experience. In this time there were no less than 4 of the red hop on hop off tour buses that came by. Our advice is take a local bus to Camara de Lobos, they appeared to be a lot more frequent. Then take the small green train up to Cabo Girao for a more pleasurable experience. This is certainly what we will do the next time.

Interesting journey on the hop on hop off bus
Nov 2017 • Couples
Interesting journey on the hop on hop off bus, change bus at Camara de Lobos. Allow time for the change of bus at Camara de Lobos to get the bus onwards to Caba Girao. Narrow roads to Caba Girao, sometimes appear to be near the edge! Not quite the Grand Canyon but great views.
