Used the Yellow Bus tour on a 2-day 3 tour trip. This was good value for money and gave us plenty of inspiration to visit other places on the tour.

During our visit to Madeira we made two tours using the Yellow Bus Tours both of which were excellent. Knowledgeable guides make for a greater appreciation of the island. They are great value for money.
