Very nice and above all tasty tour. Carlos was very pleasant and knows what he is talking about. You get 20 small snacks and some wine. The market is nice and right in the center. Also recommend the excursion 7 secrets of Alicante because that is also with Carlos, who was unfortunately full with us because of Corona.

What an amazing experience! Highly recommended. Carlos was an amazing knowledgeable host, fantastic personality and friendly rapport with the stall holders in the market we toured around. All the food and drinks was top quality. This was the best part of our visit to Alicante! Thank you Carlos!
