The visit of the Central Market is really worth the detour if only for its architecture. Our guide Isaac spoke super good English and was really interesting and knowledgeable about his subject. The tastings follow one another without us seeing the passage of time and are full of beautiful stories. Considering the stifling heat outside, it was very pleasant to do them all in the central market.

Very nice introduction to the various foods and traditions in Alicante/Spain. The guide - Isaac - deserves special credits for his humorous and direct personality and for making the tour lovely. One thing though - since the tour is only around the city market maybe the headline should not include the word city-walk. That sends out a wrong signal

Great tour with excellent food and some lovely wine tastings! Carlos was an excellent guide and his passion for Alicante was apparent. Friendly group of people on the tour and a wonderful way to spend a few hours in the city. Thank you Carlos! I'm 30yo, from NZ and did this tour on my own and I can say it is suitable for anyone.
