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.

It is good to know that you only visit the local market and therefore do not go further into the city and visit local restaurants. It was a nice excursion in itself, but the description of the excursion is not correct. Would have liked to walk around the city. Now you only taste things you can get at a market stall. Normally you get to know a bit of the city through a food tour and I missed that now.
