Frequently Asked Questions

The answers below have been provided by tour operators previously to customer queries.

  • Q: What is a hop-on hop-off Funchal bus tour, and how do they work?

    A:

    Want to see the best of a city? Visit the top attractions at your own pace without having to follow a set route with a group tour? Or maybe it’s a new city you’re exploring and aren’t sure what is best to see? Then a hop-on hop-off bus tour is what you need. Over a designated route, you’ll get to see Funchal's top attractions. See somewhere you just got to explore? A famous attraction, a top shopping street or district? Then this bus tour allows you to get off at the nearest designated stop. No tour guide, you set your own itinerary. You’ll find all the stops are located strategically at all the major attractions, making your touring as hassle-free as possible. And then, when you’re ready to continue, return to a designated bus stop, show your pass, and hop back on the bus and onwards towards your next attraction. You can do this as many times as you like within your ticket limit? And a final top tip; why not make a whole loop of the route once you have your tour ticket, so you can get familiar with the city and pick out your favourites places to visit and then return to them during your stay.
