We were three guys who spent a week in Alicante, and the guided segway tour was the highlight of our vacation. Firstly because segways are so much fun to ride, and its a great way to see the city. The service was also outstanding. Our tour guide was very friendly, and took us to central spots telling a bit about... More

We were in Alicante for only one day and decided to do a walking tour to discover as much of the city as possible. Felipe was such a lovely guide. He had a hard job of running the tour in English and Spanish so had to translate everything but we were never left not understanding or not feeling included. He... More

We had 2 great trips with Tortuga Tours, to see Guadalest and also to see a football match at Valencia. Felipe made both journeys interesting with his local knowledge and the fact that he speaks several languages means that he is able to cater for everybody. He runs small groups with his people carrier and that was much better than... More

We were pointed towards Tortuga by the hotel staff and to be honest, I couldn't find anywhere else in central Alicante to rent bikes for a couple of days. Staff were both really friendly and helpful, but the bikes were appallingly maintained, despite claims that "the mechanic works in the afternoons", my opinion was that the bikes had never seen...

Arriving in mid January and requiring a cycle orientation of Alicante & beyond Felipe at Tortuga tours arranged a private tour for me with no benefit to himself, as well as giving us lots of useful advice. Tour host Marcos was also very interesting and informative. First class service

Since this time of the year is not as busy, I had a private bike tour. Marcos was not only very pleasant but extremely informational. His personal suggestions are a must to do. This is not a strenuous bike ride so don't worry it's to difficult or too much exercise. Highly recommend at the start of your Alicante stay.
