    What to Expect
    Step onto your double decker bus at a stop of your choice to begin your Albufeira hop-on hop-off city sightseeing tour. Aboard this open-top bus, begin cruising through the beautiful beach-laden Algarve city, filled with rich history, culture and other attractions. Listen to audio commentary that offers intriguing information that may inspire you to hop-off. Along the loop, make your way into Old Town and go back in time to Moorish rule where architecture was erected with varying styles of arches and decorative tiles.

    Continue on to indulge in more dramatic views of gaudy yachts at Albufeira Marina and home to the 16th century Tower of Medronheira which was historically used for surveillance over the coastline to find and fend off corsairs. Later, poke your head out and peer out at popular nightlife pubs and chic wine bars that line the city’s strip. On hot summer days, try a refreshing trip to one of Portugal’s biggest water parks, Aqualand Algarve. Perhaps take a long stroll along Pau da Bandeira and breath in coastal bliss.

    With this city sightseeing Albufeira hop-on hop-off tour enjoy 17 stops in a loop that takes approximately 1.5 hours to circle. Hop-on and off as you please and experience endless Algarve attractions.
