What people are saying about Alicante

Everything was great! The tour guide, Isaac, was very friendly, fun and kind. The tour itself is very interesting and laid-back; you get to see som of the non-mainstream / lesser known things. You don’t get useless information thrown at you, everything was interesting and neat. Also, the tour organizers responded to our questions within minutes, and were very helpful and kind. This tour made us feel like locals :)

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

Carlos was very nice and funny, super helpful with further recommendations and the tour was very well managed. All of the food was extremely tasty and fresh. It’s absolutely worth it!

Had an excellent time on this food tour. Issac the tour guide was brilliant and the food was delicious and there was many wines and they were not stingy on the portions or the wine

Isaac the guide was very knowledgeable. Best to do the tour at the beginning of your trip
