We do these tours every time we visit Funchal. There are a number of variations you can choose, we booked the 48 hour 3 trip ticket online before we travelled and saved a few euros.

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'.

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!
