    Nice way to explore Alicante and try local food and wine. Central market was tour highlight. My favorite part was visit to Fish store and tasting salt fish.

    It was great, there was only 4 of us on the tour. We got to sample local food and see parts of Alicante we wouldn’t have necessarily gone to.
