Very good tour, with just the right amount of information
GarrySpillane, 25-09-2022
Very good tour. Just the right amount of information on Alicante. Yes the walk down from the castle is a little steep in places and with large steps at times but still very do-able for most people. Our guild was very good with great English. I would suggest doing this early on in your visit to Alicante if possible as it does open the city up for you which will be useful for the rest of your trip.

Our tour guide was wonderful. He was informative and friendly. The walk around the fortress and walk down to the city was strenuous with many steps. The tour guide provided so much information about Alicante.
