What people are saying about Alicante

What a great evening. We had the chance to try a couple of things (meatball with almond sauce, if I remember correctly and the bull's tail). Also, I appreciate the Silvina shared a lot about Alicante's history and culture as we walked our way to the next restaurant. One thing I was not prepared for was the amount of wine tasting during the course of the evening, and I couldn't walk straight on the way home at the end of the evening haha. I'm happy to have taste the bull's tail, the fio gras that was paste like, and I discovered a particular liking to Vermut thanks to Silvina. Recommended!

This is the very best tour I have done. Carlos is very helpful, proactive and nothing is too much trouble. He knows personally many of the vendors in the market hall and this makes the whole experience feel very special. I cannot fault this tour. Top marks to Carlos.

An interesting and fun trip. I was afraid I wouldn’t manage the whole tour, since I have some illnesses, but the pace was perfect for me. The guide told us some personal experiences and made it worth all the steps
