Hop-on Hop-Off Alicante City Tour on the Turibús

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 provides you 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 to 19.00. During the month of September Turibus service runs from Monday to Sunday, from 10.00 to 18.00 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 time to explore each of the 10 stops.

Make sure you carry your sun hat, sun glasses and sun screen 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.

How much is the hop on hop off bus?

@Debbie

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.
