From Valencia: Private Day Trip to Alicante with Local Guide

1. From Valencia: Private Day Trip to Alicante with Local Guide

Experience a private guided tour of Alicante, a historic Mediterranean port city and one of the most important tourist destinations in Spain. See the city’s main sites – including a castle, a cathedral, churches, and plazas – accompanied by a private local guide and with private transportation. Begin your day by getting picked up at a location of your choice in Valencia. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the views as you head off to Alicante in your own private air-conditioned vehicle. Take the stress out of the trip knowing the vehicle is at your disposal for the entire day. Get to know historic Alicante with the help of a private tour guide and learn all about a city that has been inhabited for over 7,000 years. Start your tour by visiting Santa Barbara Castle. Located at the top of Mount Benacantil, from here you can take in breathtaking views of the city. Next, descend to the historic city center and pay a visit to the Town Hall, one of the most recognizable buildings in Alicante. Continue to soak in the atmosphere of the city by checking out the other famous squares: the Plaza de Los Luceros, the Gabriel Miró Square, and the Plaza de Correosand. Head to the Co-cathedral of San Nicolás and marvel at this Renaissance building with its iconic 45-meter high blue dome. After that stroll over to the oldest church in the city, the Basilica of Santa Maria, which mixes Gothic and Baroque styles and was built on the remains of an Islamic mosque. Especially if you’re a food lover, don’t miss the opportunity to swing by Alicante’s Central Market. Savor the sights and smells of this authentic popular market spread out over two floors, and grab a snack along the way (price not included in the tour). Stop off at Alicante’s bullring, one of the oldest in Spain. Listen as your guide tells you all about the history of this building, which was built in 1847 by local architect Emilio Jover. The bullring is still in use today, not only for bullfighting festivals but also for various cultural events. Pay a visit to a local Alicante restaurant whenever you feel peckish (price not included) and sample some of the local traditional rice-based dishes. Finish your tour with a relaxing drive back to your accommodation in Valencia and enjoy an evening of rest after a day of history and culture.

We loved it. The guide is very nice and we have seen many species. We were traveling with a 10 year old. It is necessary to have snorkeled before to enjoy it. Thank you!

Very affordable experience! Fantastic guide - Fransesco - helped so that we could all participate regardless of previous experience! Can be highly recommended!!
