Belen was an expert guide, friendly and informative. A really good introduction to the city centre plus real and genuine introduction to cal cuisine, from refreshing summer drinks to outlandish fish concoctions. Stars were the meats, nougat(not normally a personal choice) and the pastries- lot less sweet than anticipated. Really well worth the money and a great introduction to Alicante, its history and cuisine.

Fun!

Our tour guide was so lovely and had so much knowledge of Alicante - there is so much history here. The food we tried was excellent. The only thing I would suggest would be that the tour guide wears a hat and has a fan, he really struggled with the heat, but he was amazing. Thank you!

The tour of Alicante was very interesting and informative - we learned a lot about the city, saw many sights and tried many specialties. Our guide Javier was super nice and could tell a lot about the history of the city. All in all, the tour is definitely recommended! :)
