The Andorra Bus Tour is probably the most comfortable way of discovering the main places of interest in our country. The 7 itineraries on offer cover all of the parishes of the Principality with different central themes: Romanesque art, traditions, trades, etc. And of course, they all have something in common: the scenery, as uniquely beautiful panoramic views and landscapes are hidden in every corner of Andorra. Here we explain everything you should know before getting on the bus: validity periods, routes, types of tickets and other practical information.
Where and when to get the Andorra Bus Tour
The Andorra Bus Tour operates from 1 June to 31 October. During this period, departures are every day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday, and each day has a different itinerary. All lines have the same point of departure: the capital, Andorra la Vella, to be precise at Plaza Príncep Benlloch 1, facing the Comú. Furthermore, there are three more stops in the city. All itineraries take a half-day and are carried out in the morning, with the exception of Saturday: which takes longer, with lunch included in the ticket and entry into the museums and churches along the route.
