Carolina was everything any tourist could want in a guide - knowledgeable, friendly, punctual, and easy to communicate with (English). Our tour to the vineyards was exceptional thanks to the details she shared about her country, its history, and current issues being faced. One person in our tour was mobility impaired and Carolina modified the tour to fit our needs; she consistently went 'above and beyond'. We left our tour feeling we had made a friend. We highly recommend her!
Carolina is absolutely lovely! She is extremely knowledgeable and has an extensive understanding of the area's history. She has lived in the area her whole life, and knows everything about Alicante and the little villages all around. She recommended a fabulous restaurant in a fishing village near Alicante, where I had the most delicious fresh seafood I've ever eaten in my life! She is a very pleasant, friendly person and by the time the tour finished, I felt like we were old friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Carrie I am so greatfull for your thoughts about me. We had a fantastic enchanting day here and there:) I enjoyed every minute with you also, You are a very warmhearted generous person. Thank you also very much for every word here and your company. Please be welcome anytime!

We had a great overview of the city during this tour.

Our tour with Carolina began at the castle on top of the hill. Carolina was very knowledgeable about the castles & Alicante history, great way to begin the tour. We then headed down into the old town situated on the side of the hill & stopped for Tapas at a lovely local restaurant.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Carlolina. She was prompt meeting us and we took off for our walk to the Castle and Old Town Alicante. Carolina is very proud of her city and its history, and knowlegeable, as well as able to communicate her enthusiasm. We highly recommend this tour and guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Christie and Tom- I really apreciatte your comments on me. I am so happy I could communicate the feelings I have for my city.

Sandra OBrienUnited States
I recently had leg surgery and Carolina was a perfect guide. She planned the tour to accommodate me. My husband and I felt that we got a good overview of Alicante. We drove right to each destination, she dropped us off and picked us up. She really knew her city and shared with us lots of little details to make the day more personal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sandra for your comments and details. I need to say that you are the ones that are a beautiful easy going nicest couple. So brave to walk up along the Castle along the little tyles, little dungeons, and do all the tour. An example of strength, even booking the tour just right away you had the surgery: Thank you for trusting me you were going to be having fun and be cared. I am so happy you felt that way. Next time I take you don't know where…! to hike!!:) Hope you have a great year. XXXX
Catherine M.ST PAUL, MN, United States
Carolina met us at the dock. It was a little confusing to find her because the security person did not let her go into the area right in front of the ship. But it worked out. She worked out a very nice tour according to my requests. We visited the Castillo, dined at a cafe with delicious sardines and goat cheeses, had sushi and shopped at the market, and walked through the older part of the city. Carolina is very down to earth and very flexible. Her knowledge of the local area is wonderful. High marks!
Jack BerroUnited States
We recently spent a very delightful day with one of your guides, Carolina in Alicante. She showed us around as well as provided transportation for my wife is somewhat handicapped. We have nothing but high praises and would recommend her to anyone who wants to visit this area.
Elliot KeyneUnited States
Carolina is an excellent tour guide. She is well prepared including using notes and drawings to support her history telling. Her background yraing in economics and finance added value to her insights. Carolina is a very warm and personable guide. I recommend her to all travelers.
James MaioranoUnited States
Carolina did a great job of driving us around to place we would not have been able to see on our own. She was vey knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend her.
Martha K.United States
Carolina is worthy of a 5 out of 5 rating! Our party of four travelers was impressed with her warmth, knowledge of both the locale and the history of Alicante, and excellent choice of a restaurant (El Portal Taberna and Wines) in town where we could sample typical tapas and luncheon dishes. Before lunch she led us on a great walking tour that included the food market hall and much of the old town. After lunch, more walking so we could work off some of the calories. We hated to say goodbye to her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: WOWWWW sorry.. I did not see your review;(((((((. Can not believe it how I miss it. Thank you so much for your company, enjoy it a lot. Thank you for including me as a friend. That is so far my intention, so you have a close view of everything here sharing my hometown. Thank you so much for your comments about me. Most important is that you had fun and I could be there for you. I wish this words get to you …I love you be back so we can continue our great day…Always welcome
Paul AustinUnited States
Carolina was wonderful she picked me and my wife up at the dock and proceeded to city center. We then embarked on a wonderful tour, sampling wine, nuts, fruit and many kinds of tapas. The fish and fruit market was very interesting to see all of the vendors selling and hawking their wares. Throughout the day Carolina was constantly informing us about the history of Alicante and of the Spanish customs. She delivered us back the ship on time and thus ended a wonderful day in Alicante Spain.

I had the perfect morning. I wish we could have a bigger stomach though;) Thank you so much for your comments.
