My parents and I decided to take a ride in one of these motorized, open "carts" and were extremely pleasantly surprised by the high level of knowledge of our driver, Nuno, as well as his seriously funny sense of humor. We pretty much laughed out loud the entire time, while taking a beautiful and informative tour of the city...highly recommend.

We like to take the bus tour when we visit any new city and chose the red bus tour over the yellow bus tour mainly due to Trip Advisor comments. At the start our thoughts were 'oh no! this is going to be very poor' however, despite a slow start we were not disappointed. The tour was good through the city centre then up the hills for some superb views. Added bonus is the quaint fishing town of Camara do Lobo, very nice.

We've tried various city sightseeing busses all over Europe and this one is the first I would not recommend. The busses arrive at 30 minute intervals which make them less than usefull as a mode of transportation. The stops miss some of the tourist spots and the information given is very hectic during the first half of the tour (in the city) - this gets better during the second half. It's a relaxing way to spend two hours though - especially if the sun is out and you're on top of the bus.

Recommend for everyone. Narrow crooked streets, architecture, night lights,.... Almost everything is so charming and full of Madeira spirit. Will come back for sure.

This was a great way to get around, plus the stop was steps from our hotel. We bought the pass for two days and it work well. We started by staying on the bus for the almost the entire route to get an idea how to spend our time best. there are many gardens and little towns to visit.
