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

Alberto was an awesome guide!!! Entertaining and full of interesting facts!! We highly recommend him and this tour for anyone interested in tasting local Alicante wine.
