What an amazing experience! Highly recommended. Carlos was an amazing knowledgeable host, fantastic personality and friendly rapport with the stall holders in the market we toured around. All the food and drinks was top quality. This was the best part of our visit to Alicante! Thank you Carlos!

Fantastic experience. Carlos was a brilliant guide with a wealth of knowledge of the area. Enjoyed learning the 7 secrets of Alicante. Although I go to Alicante regularly I still found out many new things. Look forward to join another experience sometime soon.

Our guide was excellent, slipping easily between Spanish and English for explanations. a group drink at the end (not sure if this is a regular occuramce) was a very good way to know those in the same group (we had another couple and a lady).

Walking around the market with Carlos was like going there with a friend, with a lot of knowledge and funny stories about the market and the people working there.

The guide was really nice, easy going and well educated. The vineyard was really beautiful and the wine amazing. We recommend this tour to everyone!
