It was money well spent. We got to know the flavors of Spain that we didn't know before. Sweet, salty, sour, fish, fruit, vegetable, meat, several types of wines. Carlos knows how to tell stories, he was prepared, knows local sellers. 2 hours of heaven in my mouth.

What a great day! Carlos is a person with a lot of passion about the city alicante and especially the food market. We tried so many different tapas and they where all great. The great thing about this tour is that if you would be there alone as a tourist you will never find the stories and specialties about the region. And as kind as he is he gave us his Phone number, so we could ask everything we wanted to know about alicante and the region. All his recommendations about restaurants and things to do where great. My trip in alicante would not me this great when didn't met carlos!
