I booked this tour for my wife and I and our two youngest children (16 & 12) and we all enjoy it immensely. Isaac is a very well informed and witty young man. His passion for all things Alicante was very evident and endearing. We tasted and learned more in our two hours with Isaac than we have in the months we’ve stayed in Alicante this year. We also went back after the tour and purchased the finest meats, cheeses and fruit Alicante has to offer. The vendors were very engaging and very appreciative of our custom. I would highly recommend it to all and will definitely use this company for other tours in the coming months

This tour was inside the Alicante central food market therefore it was chance to introduce more products to us. Carlos the guide was giving us very good information about the food, where it came from and what area in Spain. Most of the vines we tasted were from the Alicante region and the guide gave us good information about food and vine pairing.

Very enjoyable to tour, Carlos was very knowledgeable too, every place had something different, Paco at the Gran Canaria shop was really nice also, we returned twice during our trip to buy some of his products and he was so helpful. We also went back to the Sento restaurant twice and to Lizzaran for some delicious Pinchos, we would never have known about these places only for this very informative tour. Thank you so much Carlos.
