    Fine as long as you don't want a refund for an unused ticket
    Trip great . Company disorganized and refuse to refund a ticket that was cancelled before my trip despite 2 hours I spent organizing this before I travelled

    Don’t waste your money! No service to clients!
    A hundred percent would not recommend! Ours broke down 10 minutes in the tour, and we got left in very hot temperatures with direct sun for about 1 hour, everyone left. We emailed yellow bus tours and never got a response for a refound. Do better yellow bus tours!

    Excellent overview of Lisbon, but …
    The bus tour(s) gave us an excellent overview of the city. The only thing that we were not happy about was that we were waiting 1h for the tram 28 and then we were thrown off halfway so we walked to a Yellow Bus stop to get back. We probably could have been waiting at the tram stop but wasn’t sure if we could find space on it going back

    Great city preview
    We were traveling with teenage grandchildren and the hop on hop off gave us a great overview of the city. We especially were thrilled with encountering the aquarium which was spectacular and a group of restaurants right near there with an amazing selection of different ethnic food. Great way to get your bearings for the rest of your stay

    Ok
    The tour is okay. My only complaint is while the recording does say “our next stop is…” it does not announce when the stop is happening. If nobody gets up to leave or there isn’t anyone at the stop, the driver doesn’t stop, so you either have to get off at the next stop or spend an hour on the route.

    Historical sites
    This sightsee offers a great view of Lisboa. Attached to the ticket you can enjoy one or two free attractions. Must see the Belem Tower, Jeronimo Monastery and the monument to Discoveries and the bridge. Belem offers other hidden gems like the Pasteleria de Belem and Santa Maria de Belem church. Love Lisboa as a whole

    Must see and do tour!
    The absolute best way to get around the city. See all the sights with sufficient commentary. Boat tour and tram pass are a plus. Start with this bus and use it for your basis for further exploration.

    Stick to the Blue Route
    The Belem tour of the historic city was very interesting. The tour of modern Lisbon was the dullest bus tour I’ve ever done. Give it a miss! Also be prepared for non-stop awful music which really detracts from the experience. Why is there no option to hear the narrator only?

    Don't do it
    I wouldn't recommend it at all. Everything on the bus was broken, this was due to the warm weather, the employee at the starting point said. She said we could get the price of the ticket back. To date, I have never received a response to my many emails.

    Hop on Tour Incomplete
    We were told the Tram tour for June 12 was cancelled due to a festival. That tour should have been blocked during our booking. We were not able to make up for the list opportunity fue to other tours we booked. We have reached out to Yellow Bus Tours for a ticket extension but nothing has been heard from them. We are requesting your intervention to get a ticket extension for today,June 16. We are leaving Portugal early tomorrow morning. If not we are requesting a refund for the Tram tour leg of our booking.

    Excellent way to see Lisbon
    We used the yellow bus tours. Excellent way to see all of Lisbon. Great to be able to use the open top bus, fernicula, tram and the boat down the river giving you lots of choice. Recommend at least 48hour ticket, we had a 72 hour ticket. Your time starts from when you use the ticket for the first time and NOT per day so worth thinking about your arrival and departure time from Lisbon to max out the ticket. Very good value for money!

We rode on the Belem line and took the boat ride on the first day. Very enjoyable, although much less buses than their competitor- the Red buses. We wasted a lot of time waiting for a bus. On day 2, we took a taxi directly to the National Coach Museum, because we didn’t want to walk 15 minutes to the closest stop from our hotel and then be on the bus for an hour before getting to the museum stop. After viewing the museum, I realized I left the “paper tickets “ in the hotel. I still had the digital tickets on my phone. We wanted to continue on the Belem line and transfer to the Modern line where they both have a bus stop. The Belem line bus driver let us on without an issue. The Modern line bus driver refused to let us on- even though it was obvious by the digital tickets that this was one of our bus days. He told us where to find the kiosk (with a person) that could give us new tickets. We knocked on the door. A woman opened the door and told us she was eating her lunch and closed the door. We waited 30 minutes for her to open the door. After she opened the door she told us there was nothing she could do about it and that we should to go back to our hotel to get our paper tickets. By the time we got a taxi, went back to the hotel etc, we lost 3 hours of our day 2. Since the buses only run until 7pm, we only had 4 hours left to see everything. We decided to take the Modern line, only to find out we had to wait until 4pm for the next one. (It was 3:25). The Modern line was a true waste of precious time. We never got use the Lift, cable car or Funicular passes. Bottom line- poor customer service, limited buses, inflexible way of doing business.

Big Disappointment. Traveling with family 7 people (total 2 are 78 yrs old. ) As recommended by travel agent we went on Monday. We started at 9 am and were off on last bus run. Most Museums were closed which we found out when we disembarked. When asking drivers for information all 3buses we used were very abrupt. We were told came every 30 minutes it was more 45 to 1 hour no shade or benches available to wait…,,5 bussed were shown on the live route app. App says 3 minutes away and never shows. When got the buses they are over crowded had to sit lower level no ac or open windows for air circulation. Tried taking yellow boat which is extra and due to lack of busses missed the delay and had 2 1/2 h wait. Then missed bus’s for next stop had hour wait Very uncomfortable especially for older adults after standing in sun for 45 min to hour. Never got to use modern Lisbon route as bus never came. After 1hour wait we took last Belem bus so we could at least get nearer to our hotel. Wasted most of day waiting for the bus. Not a true hop on off ride. Better pay little more and have tour where you can get off and on

This is a very impersonal touring experience. I’ve done many city tours and the best parts of these tours in most cases are the guides, the stories they tell, and their personalities. This tour is prerecorded. Also, the bus is not air conditioned and can be very hot, like the day I toured.

Unfortunately not so happy with Yellow Bus in Lisbon for these reasons :
1. Long waits between buses, waited up to one hour. Did not take the chance of getting off. Missed a realtime online schedule.
2. Information on guide was limited. Long intermissions with after a while annoying Fado music ( I would prefer less music and more information and maybe a couple fun stories) I am sure there are so much more to tell about this city.
3. For boat tour, they had us waiting out in burning sun and 30 degrees for 30 minutes before letting us on the boat. Recommend to set up shades in summertime . The information on boat was very brief and in too many languages.

Good thing with the tour is that you get an ok overview of the city.

Awful ! The Moderna route takes you through graffiti lined streets , docks and up to “modern Lisbon” . Absolutely nothing up there if interest to see and if you dare to get off at the one stop you’d not get back on bus again . Nobody got off as it was not hop on at all . Buses were crammed , people standing in isles so restricted views . Audio was music , as tbh there was not much worthy of commentary .
Only saving grace was the river cruise which was pretty but not worth buying the combined ticket .
Bus tour is a joke , it’s a bus ride back to the airport area .

Amazing experience with Yellow Bus in Lisbon! We got the “all-inclusive” package with the two bus tours, red trolley, ferry tour, and access to public trolleys, buses, and metros. Great for three days of seeing Lisbon! The red trolley line is next to the ones for the 28 line, but you really don’t have to wait for the red one, which was wonderful not to stand in the sun! We took one of the public trolley down the hill, lifesaver for tired travelers. All-around great experience!

we had to cancel our trip a few weeks before. Every other agency (airline, hotels, other tour companies) refunded us in full. Not only have not received a refund from Carristur / Yellow Bus Tours, but we also have not been able to even get an email response for over 2 weeks.

There are 2 main bus tours both of which are a high standard of cleanliness and punctuality. The on board headphone volume is too quiet. The blue circuit is more interesting than the purple one. The river cruise was late and at 2 hours doesn't deliver enough new information.

Great tour of the city. We did both the pink and the blue bus lines. Very interesting. The buses run all the time and there was plenty of room on the bus. Great tour. We didn't have time for the trams or the boat. Great value.

Both bus tours lacked a whole lot. The audio mostly music. The modern tour allot of shipping docks and a giant shopping mall. The boat tour audio wacked out and started over. Heard about bridge as we past under. Then again after we turned around. Easy way to see city but don't learn much about it. I used to enjoy the human given tours. Not the audio ones.
