Terrible Experience!!

Do NOT EVER Sign-up for this tour!! It was suppose to start at 11am, we were at meeting spot at 10:30am, waited until 11:45am & guide NEVER showed-up. I am going to ask Viator for a refund, IF we don’t get one we will never use Viator again!! I thought it sooo RUDE that if something came up they did not contact us!!

Hi Robert! Your comments regarding the service you received at our tour are very important to us. First of all, let me apologize for not being aware of the booking made. The Covid-19 situation has not allowed us to check the platform as much as we would have liked, the service that you had booked is canceled and we do not yet know when it will resume. We have detected the problem, and have taken immediate action to ensure it does not happen again. We would like to apologise again. You deserve only the best service. We take full responsibility. Thank you for reporting this incident. Sincerely, Alicante Smart Destination

This tour is excellent! A mixture of local knowledge, tradition and amazing food and local drinks with host Juan-Luiz and his super talented cook introducing you to Paella cooked the Alicante way. Tapas, local specialities, cooking secrets and finally a sit down meal with wine and dessert. Great value and you can probably skip dinner too.

Hi Chris! It's Belén, from the Gourmet Walking Tour! I think this review belongs to another tour you may have done as well. Our tour consisted on a two-hours walking route within the old town while tasting some local products such as wine, tiger nut milk, salted fish... Anyway, feel free to leave us a review so that we know if you also enjoyed our tour :)

Great few hours learning about the city and trying various local produce at shops and the food market. Our guide was excellent - really friendly and helpful. A few more options for vegetarians would have been useful.

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!
