Our walking tour of Alicante was excellent. We met Carolina mid morning and had a glorious walk up to Santa Barbara Castle. The walk up and down is very gradual. The castle is a must to see and Carolina's insight was very informative. The history is amazing. From there we walked down to the central market and stopped at a great restaurant for lunch. After lunch we continued to walk the central area... Carolina pointing out lots and lots of great restaurants and things to do. Great introduction to Alicante
Group of 14 on a company social trip. We had a very nice tour of castle with history of Alicante and down to the andalusian style party of the old town. Carolina booked lunch for us on the best tapas bar in Alicante. After lunch viewed all the nice parts of Alicante centre and old town. We had a very nice day :)

I hope you have a great time around here. Best regards Carolina

We had a delightful day in Cartagena with Carolina. It really is a city not to miss as Roman ruins are so thoughtfully excavated. Carolina provided insider's access to one portion we would never have discovered on our own. We enjoyed a lovely lunch, the people were all so friendly and the city is so clean and well kept. She also assisted us in converting USD to EUR, which turned out to be a bit of a hassle. She was very gracious and helpful. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Sondra:) It was a pleasure spending the day with you also. Special time with special people. You are so kind and open to details and enjoy. Thank you so much for your words. I appreciate in my heart your thoughts and sharing you had a great day together. I hope you have a great new year so far. Hope to see you some day very soon. soon:) Best regards!

We loved alicante and will definately be back so clean and picturesque. The trip to fishing village was substitute as caves closed but we enjoyed it so much we will go to caves next time. We wish we had more time in port. Carolina was so friendly we had another fabulous day. She tailored tour to our needs and was so considerate gave us options. Definitely ask for carolina tours again and recommend to our friends and on trip advisor and cruise critic.

We were in Alicante for the feria of Hogueras and wanted to be shown the out of the way places that we could not find on our own without the assistance of a local.Carolina was terrific in introducing us to her favorite haunts where we drank tinto de verano and clara while enjoying some typical Alicante fare.

Aline LopezMississauga, ON, Canada
Carolina is a very personable guide and is generous with her knowledge and time. Our walking tour with her was a perfect introduction to Valencia. She pointed out some of the less obvious sites that were worth seeing. We especially enjoyed our visit to the Mercado Central. The next day we went back and bought ingredients to try a recipe she had suggested. She brought us to a restaurant for a paella lunch, which was delicious. We loved learning about Valencia and really had an enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohh you really did it! fantastic, the Mercado seafood and vegetables are amazing. One of the most important ones in Spain. Thank you very much , you are very enthusiastic and open to learn, which is great to enjoy telling about everything. Open mind and happy and lovely people are the ingredients! to have a great day together. I hope we meet again soon.

Excellent tour and Carolina was fabulous. One of the best guides we've ever had from ToursByLocals! Highly recommended.
Alice W.United States
Carolina is outstanding! We had a ridiculously short port visit which started at 7am...when nothing is open. She came in the day before in order to meet us that early...we met for breakfast and a history lesson of the area, then toured the Roman amphitheater together. Cartagena itself has done a fantastic job with their AMAZING ruins (my husband say "better than Rome"). She is US educated and was excited to share her culture with us, and WE are grateful to have met her ! Highly recommend!
John CartierJersey City, NJ, United States

Carolina recommended that we change our itinerary based on traffic so that we could spend more time in Valencia! She did a nice job of spending the day with us and making sure that we saw the important sights. She found a very nice small restaurant to experience authentic paella! She was a pleasure to be with!
Vincent KovarikUnited States
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.
