What people are saying about Central Market, Alicante

A really good mix of local knowledge to learn about the hidden parts of Alicante. We sampled some wonderfull jamon and cheese in the market and had to go back to get some to bring home. After the market we got a taxi to the top of the castle which was a good move as then all the walking was down hill. The guide was very knowledgable, in both the history and local knowledge. He told us the best places to visit and were to avoid. All in all we thought it was very good value for money.

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 :)

Issac was a wonderful tour guide and very patient when I couldn’t find the meeting point! I’ve been to Alicante a few times now and didn’t think there was anything new to discover but I was definitely wrong! This tour is such great value for money and a great experience. I would recommend it to everyone :)

After staying in Alicante for 3 days we decided to book this tour to wrap up our trip and we were not disappointed. Our guide was friendly, funny and full of knowledge.

Isaac was Informative and very knowledgable. He gave us a great tour. Would recommend for sure
