Full description
Take in the sights of Albufeira in Portugal at your own pace on this hop-on, hop-off bus tour.

You can choose for your ticket to be valid for either 24 hours or 4 days, giving you the flexibility to explore this beautiful coastal town on your own time. And you’ll be doing so from the comfort of an open-top double-decker bus, hopping on and off at conveniently located stops.

There’s a lot to discover in Albufeira, with its cultured history, fabulous beaches, water sports and vibrant nightlife. Take a trip to the Old Town, with authentic local shops and restaurants lining the cobblestone roads. See the town square, with its charming churches, bars and cafes.

You can also wander through the tunnel, past the Bell Tower – one of the town’s landmarks – and through the old castle to the fantastic Fishermans Beach.

Albufeira is famous for its fusion of architecture, with much of the town renovated after a devastating earthquake in the 18th century. With our tour, you can admire the unique Manueline-style S. Sebastio Church, and the restored gothic-style Misericordia Chapel.

There is also the Tower of Medronheira, which dates back to the 1500s and was used to survey the sea for pirates and invaders.

So book a ticket on our tour and check out these sights and more.

Great way to explore the area

This is an excellent way to see and learn about the area. It is very good value. The online information is very poor and no updated maps. The ear buds supplied weren’t good for us but we could use our own ones. It would be great to be able to use the e-tickets rather then having to get a print copy. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

Great way to see the place and work out what was around the area we were staying. Also relaxing to sit back and go for a long spin around the place. just make sure you produce a printed ticket!!!

It’s a great way to see Albufeira. It’s nice you can pick two different lines red or blue and you can jump off and eat some nice food and jump back on. Drivers are very pleasant. Had a lot of fun
