What to Expect
Discover Santa Cruz at your leisure on a sightseeing bus tour

The delightful capital city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is located at the eastern tip of the island of Tenerife, the largest island in the Canary Island chain. Every day, 5 bright red open-top buses lead this tour; the tour has 11 stops and includes all of the capital's main sights, starting with the Plaza de España. The tour includes the Our Lady of Africa Market, García Sanabria Park, the Rambla, Plaza de Pedro Schwartz, and the avant-garde, oceanfront Tenerife Auditorium, designed by the internationally renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Pass by the city’s cruise terminal, which sees almost 500,000 passengers arrive each year, and go to Playa de las Teresitas, where you can soak up the sun on golden sands, swim in calm waters, and enjoy stunning mountain views. Hop off at the Plaza de España, the largest square in the Canary Islands and located in the oldest district of Santa Cruz.

Enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the city from the top deck of an open-top bus

Located in the heart of the city, the square is home to the Palacio del Cabildo de Tenerife, the Palacio de la Carta, the Plaza de la Candelaria, and a large artificial lake. Here, you can find the Monumento a los Caídos, a tribute to those fallen in the Spanish Civil War. Peruse the dazzling display of more than 300 stalls selling fresh local produce at the famous Our Lady of Africa Market. Sundays offer the opportunity to bag a bargain at the El Rastro Flea Market, which surrounds the African Market, and where you can buy leather goods, hardware, and crafts. Learn more about Tenerife’s rich history and thriving arts scene at the city’s museums. The TEA (Tenerife Espancio de las Artes) is an exhibition center and art gallery. Or perhaps you might prefer to visit The Museum of Man and Nature, which delves into the island’s history, and also features geological, natural, and archaeological exhibits.

Hop on and off the bus tour at your convenience

Hop off at the Cuartel Almeida, home to the Military Museum. The exhibition includes the uniforms and other personal items of respected military personnel, models of military constructions, and collections of arms used by the Guanches and the Spanish during the time of the conquest of Tenerife at the end of the 15th century. You can also admire artworks by renowned Canary artists in this museum. Hop off at the Centro Internacional de Ferias y Congresos and the Tenerife Auditorium. The latter boasts some exceptional examples of contemporary futuristic architecture, which forms a stark contrast to the historical buildings in the city center. Take the bus tour to El Corte Ingles, a huge, prestigious department store where shops selling a vast range of goods are spread over 7 floors. The store is also home to a supermarket, coffee shop, and restaurant. Tenerife boasts a vibrant nightlife, so you will not be short of bars, sports bars, clubs, karaoke, and live entertainment to choose from.
