Sitting on the bus in some square, no idea which one, listening to Boney M. Driver doesn't seem to give a toss. Will stay on in the hope that it will take us somewhere soon, but if things don't improve I'll be looking for a refund. Not a good 1st impression of either the company or Lisbon. Come on, you should be able to do better than this....

This is most definitely not as good as hop on hop off tours we've done in other cities, and we knew going in that the reviews weren't great but it was really hot and we thought it would be a decent way to get an overview of the city. Because of the way Lisbon is built with narrow hilly streets, the buses really can't take you anywhere good so it's kind of a waste of time. It did get us to Belem, which was a ways from where we were staying but I think there probably were cheaper, better options to get us there. And as others have mentioned, the commentary is not great. A lot of the time you're just listening to music, not getting any info about anything. I completely stopped listening about halfway through. The next day we ended up just walking and wandering and it was SO MUCH BETTER, although still hot.

May 2019 • Couples
The line has recently changed the name of their tours and the hotel which issued the voucher didn't quite know yet and did not "cross" the right circle.. When coming to the bus a very rude female attendant said "we cannot accept this - even so the price was the right one - you have to go back to the hotel and they have to issue a new voucher". The was categorical. When I asked the driver whether there is really no choice he – after some long hesitation – said yes after all you paid so we should be able to accept. After further 5 minutes he said yes we can accept. It had rained but the rain had stopped some time ago but all the seats upstairs where whet. When I asked whether I could at least get something to dry the seat I was told “that is your problem!” and then the tour started. After having tried five connection holes for the earphone finally the sixth one functioned. Later on when we “hoped on again” we couldn’t find an operational one as the few who worked were already all taken.
T one point we asked the driver whether this was station 13 but he told us not it is the next. The next was then 14!!
At Belem we had to wait 48 minutes for a bus to arrive – instead of the 20 minutes advertised. All in all a regrettable experience. We were told that the Red Line is much better – we have not tried it but it cannot be worse than the Yellow one.

Sucks.
Welccome to trafficjam and Portuguese folk music. Tour is extreamly slow, no interesting information is given. Headphones plays annoying folk music. Rarely is information given, and when it is its so very basic. Like "this is a mosce, closeby is a zoo"

Dont do this toure its a waste of time and money.

not bad if you book in advance and know what you are getting into
Apr 2019 • Solo
I've done a number of hop on hop off bus yours in bigs cities. They are a great way to get acquainted with a new city especially if you are tired of walking. The only thing I will say I wish I knew in advance about this tour is If you dont purchase tickets ahead of time via internet or from your hotel, plan to waste a good hour trying to get tickets from an agent, and also plan to pay cash. yes, cash. I purchased at the waterfront in Baixa/Chaida where it was chaotic and only 2 staff who were in no hurry to accomodate tourists. They also would not take my credit card which complicated things. It was a real waste of time when it was already late in the day and I had limited time on the stops. Later I did see a small stand with "Yellow Bus' on the front. not sure if they would have taken credit cards? Anyway, very unorganized if its a company actually trying to make money.

As far as the tour, not that comfortable, but thats the way the bigs buses are. Lots of hard starts and stops. Don't try to walk on the bus. But I was able to get to many areas of the city that I never would have found on my own. Many areas were not too remarkable, but some were, like Avenue Liberdade and then areas up on the hills of the city and lastly Belem were really lovely. You really need to get off the bus to get good pics. The audio was ok, lots of music but still educational and I got to learn some things about Lisbon.
I was on a one night stopover so really didn't have tons of time, but felt I got a good outline of the city from the bus tour. I'm hearing the hill trolleys were good, but unfortunatey they were starting to close for the day, so I was unable to use. The bus ticket is useful for all the funiculars which was worth it, they run later into the night. Also there is an Aerobus from Rossio included. Had I know all this before I got to Lisbon I would have made arrangements to get a ticket ahead of time so I could use the Aerobus both ways, but I ended up using the subway for airport transport to avoid traffic. Overall it's fine if you can conveniently get tickets. Leave enough time to try trams and funicars if you can!

OK. Not with the price
Two set of earphones did not work. The synchronising of the languages to areas did not work great. I think a better option is a daily metro pass for 7 euro.

Very disappointing service
Oct 2018 • Family
We visited Lisbon last weekend and took the Gray Line bus tour from Marquis de Pombal. You can't book the red route alone, you must book another route as well. We took the red route bus to Belem. Then we could not get back on as the two buses that arrived in the hour we stood as they were both full, even full of people standing. We took a taxi to our next destination and then tried to get on the green route, it too was full? They sell too many tickets and don't provide enough buses on their routes. Very disappointing service.

Blue line tour
Do not waste your money! The driver was chatting on his telephone the entire journey and did not stop at either of the stops we wanted. The JERONIMOS MONASTERY or the MONUMENT TO THE DISCOVERIES. Very angry at being ripped off like this.

Audio guide did not work
The bus is nice, the rout to Belem offers a view of the upper part of Lisbon, which is great. Hoever - the audio guides did not work, for us and for many of the other passengers. One of the passengers went downstairs to tell the driver about the problem, but he had no solution to offer and did not really care. It seems that he was well aware of the problem, it was really dissapointing.
