The tour was excellent and quite extensive. The ship provided a shuttle to Volvo Oceans Race Square where we met our guide. From there it was 5 minute walk into the heart of Alicante. The tour included a tour of Castillo de Santa Barbara in the upper region of Alicante. You take the elevator up to the top. The guide offered the option of taking the elevator or walking down. We chose to walk down. We then strolled the esplanade which in similar to Las Ramblas in Barcelona. This is a strenuous excursion, so be prepared to walk about 3 miles up and down hills.
