    Fantastic Tour
    Feidhlim_B, Jul 2022
    What a fantastic little tour hosted by 2 lovely guys. Our guide was Isaac who was great, very informative and patient as he guided us around providing all sorts of historic information that we would probably never have known. The tour also takes you through some streets that you would miss if you did a solo excursion to the castle. From the old market to the castle and back down through the side streets into the old town, the tour rounded off with a delicious paella that even our normally fussy teenager enjoyed. Highly recommend this tour that starts early but leaves you with plenty of time left in your day to explore more of this lovely city. The guys also follow up with emails afterwards with tips on places to visit both sightseeing and restaurants. Thanks a million guys. Great little tour.
    Great value for money
    Peppi_H, Jul 2022
    Tour was amazing, we got to know so much in a fun way. This tour was worth every penny. Group size was great & all the tapas + Alicante secrets.

    Secret Alicante
    Fiona_P, Jul 2022
    It was very interesting to find parts of Alicante that I wouldn’t have come across. We had already visited the castle but even so our tour guide Isaac was very knowledgeable and told us facts that I didn’t know. The added bonus was a small tapa at the market and sangria and a further tapa at the end. Would thoroughly recommend the tour.
    Super tour.

    Eleanor_M, Mar 2022
    A super tour to book for early on in your trip to get your bearings and understand how much Alicante has to offer - a peak into the hidden gems so you can explore the place yourself afterwards with a little confidence. We loved it. A great first morning with a very warm and friendly local guide that really set the scene for the lovely people we dealt with everywhere we went in Alicante

    The tour was amazing! Carlos was a very knowledgeable, entertaining, and friendly tour guide. I learned so much about the history and culture of Alicante, and it was nice to see some of the hidden spots that I might not have been able to find on my own. I also liked how personal the tour felt. I definitely recommend it!
    A great way to spend a morning - take this tour!!

    A really fun and informative tour!!Relaxed attitude Carlos was amazing!!!!👏👏👍 We look forward to attending his wedding!! Ha ha ha
    Definitely a surprise tour
    JenniferH, Dec 2021
    We were a small group with one member who had some mobility difficulties. Carlos very easily solved this problem without us losing any of the enjoyment of the tour. This is definitely a unique tour and we hadn't known what to expect. Suffice to say that we were very happy and we liked Carlos very much. He is a very knowledgeable, friendly and polite young man. He is also a pleasure to be with and I hope that he does well in the future because he deserves it. Have a wonderful wedding Carlos! Thank you for the great time we had in Alicante.

    Facts and Fun in the Sun
    WJ_M, Dec 2021
    Fort his type of experience to be informative, interesting an enjoyable you need to have a guide who can satisfy these demands. Carlos achieved that and more. He sent out useful information and advice prior to joining the tour and displayed a level of customer service which engaged and relaxed me completely to the extent I did not want the tour to end. Furthermore, he had the ability to involve everybody and give interesting historical, political and social insights to what made Alicante the place it is today. It is obvious Carlos likes people, is knowledgeable and knows his city and its inhabitants intimately. When I return (and I will) I will be contacting Carlos. Thank you for a memorable experience which was the highlight of my holiday.😀
    Excellent tour by a very good tour guide
    RG_W, Nov 2021

    We had a very Nice expérience. Our guide Carlos was very knowledgeable about Alicante and manage the visit in frendly and professional way. We strongly recommand
    Amazing tour and guide
    Lawrence_T, Jul 2021
    Fabulous tour with many hidden secrets of Alicante. A must tour at the start of your stay. Carlos was fun and very informative. I always feel having a tour is better than trying to look around by yourself. You learn so much. Carlos was very helpful and sent many recommendations of beaches, restaurants, tapas, fish, paella, local places rather than tourist. He also sent lots of information on where to visit, where to watch the sunset and how to get to places. He was happy to answer any questions and also very helpful after the tour and replied to any questions we had. Fabulous tour guide - a huge credit to Alicante. I’m sure one day we will see him also organising weddings! Watch this space. Julie & Lawrence
