What people are saying about Alicante

I booked this tour for my wife and I and our two youngest children (16 & 12) and we all enjoy it immensely. Isaac is a very well informed and witty young man. His passion for all things Alicante was very evident and endearing. We tasted and learned more in our two hours with Isaac than we have in the months we’ve stayed in Alicante this year. We also went back after the tour and purchased the finest meats, cheeses and fruit Alicante has to offer. The vendors were very engaging and very appreciative of our custom. I would highly recommend it to all and will definitely use this company for other tours in the coming months

It was an amazing tour! Carlos is a genuine man, from Alicante, he made us discover the city with the bare eyes of a local. It was a true qualitative experience, I got to meet friendly tourists.
