A great tour, our guide Carlos was a true local, well prepared and knowledgable about the area and customs. We had a great time with plenty to eat and drink. Well worth the trip!

What a fun tour! Our samplings were SO educational e.g., the four different classes of Spanish ham and so fun, thinks to our wonderful guide, Henar Valor. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and intent on teaching us everything about the foods of her region. Her English was great! We sampled sausages at one stall in a covered market, cheeses at another, coca and nougat at a vendor cart, olive oil with fresh dipping bread in a retail store, and fresh fruits in the Mercado Central. She even took us into a fascinating museum that the locals love Museu de Fogueres. Not the best tour for wine-tasting just one wine shop with just one wine tasted, but everything else was tops!

Henar our tour guide was amazing, very friendly and obviously loves her job. Enjoyed tasting the foods we would not have otherwise tried. Would have been nice to try some unusual fruit, rather than the everyday fruit like oranges, kiwi, pineapple etc. Although not a lot of walking it would be nice to sit down while trying the food as was very tired after the tour from all the standing. Glad the weather was not too hot 23 degrees, would be challenging if any warmer. A great tour and would not hesitate to recommend.

We went on this tour on 9th Dec it was superb, our guide was charming and interesting and took us to places we had never seen. The food sampling was very interesting . we visited the Museum and she gave us lots of information. also answered any questions we had about Alicante in general. Well worth the money .As there were only 4 in our group it made it a very personal experience. Keep up the good work.

Very good value. Not too much walking, a nice small group and a nice slow pace. Our guide spoke excllent English and was very helpful. We enjoyed sampling all the local dishes, and the wine although it was a bit early in the day to enjoy too much wine!
There was also a local festival taking place and our guide was happy to elaborate on the festivities and local events. Very good value for money and a lovely way to spend the morning.
