Definitely, the perfect way to explore the famous landmarks of Alicante is to book the service of a Hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tourist bus, known as Turibús. This one-of-a-kind double-decker bus service providing 24-hour access to the best sights in Alicante in an air-conditioned double-decker coach with a system of multilingual commentary furnished in 6 different languages as well as an access platform adjusted for people with reduced mobility.

If you are short on time but want to see much of this beautiful city as possible, take advantage of the Turibús. Hop on and off, at your leisure, throughout the day and see all of Alicante’s major points of interest. During the months of July and August, Turibus service runs from Monday to Sunday, from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm. During the month of September Turibus service runs from Monday to Sunday, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm. From October to December, Turibus service runs from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 6:00 p.m. The 50 minutes pure pleasure of a leisurely sightseeing journey leaves guests plenty of time to explore each of the 10 stops.

Make sure you carry your sun hat, sunglasses and sunscreen as the best views of Alicante are enjoyed only if you sit on the top deck of the bus. Of course, don’t forget to carry a camera to capture all those lovely memories.

We are arriving on a cruise ship. Is there a stop near the port to get on?

How much is the hop on hop off bus?

When I had gone to Alicante last year, a full day tour (ie. 10.00 to 18.00) costed me just 10 Euros. And just FYI, they charge 5 Euros for children between 4 to 12 years old. This a definitely a cheap option to discover Alicante.

What is the time the buss rides in the month of May?
The bus timings are as follow:

From Jan. to Aug: Mon. to Sun.: 10.00 to 19.00.
In September: Mon. to Sun.: 10.00 to 18.00
From Oct. to Dec.: Tues. to Sun.: 10:00 - 18.00

We will be arriving in Alicante on 3 April 2018 by a cruise ship for a one day visit. We want to take the Turibus to visit the main sites. Can we purchase tickets for the Turibus in advance online, or can we purchase them when we board the bus?
Best way to explore Alicante city is by foot or another option is a segway tour. You can also opt for a touribus.

Does the Turibus stop anywhere near the cruise port? Where would I buy tickets there? We want to go to the Contemporary museum of art and the Mercado. Does the bus go to these places. Do you have a map with English of the stops that you could email me. Thank you very much. HN
