Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
This experience deserves more than 5 stars. 5 of us ladies are traveling together and so far this was the best. We did a short tour of the Science Center learning about the amazing architecture. Then the best part began. The food and wine was fabulous. Mimi’s explanation of the tapas and wine was excellent. The view at the rooftop was spectacular. I highly recommend this experience, well worth the price.

Valencia's City of Arts and Sciences Tour
Amazing exhibits and would highly recommend anyone with or without children to go. Our guide was perfect as she engaged with our children and took us to all the important areas as it could be overwhelming as there is so much to see. 3 hours was perfect for our family.

Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
10/10 would recommend this tour. The walk around the grounds along with the commentary from Mimi was great to begin with and it just got better at the tapas and tasting. From 33 floors up, you will take in spectacular views. We had five different wines, 10 courses of great food, a great hostess, and great company.

Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
This was an illuminating trip and wine tasting/meal and we all enjoyed the whole time. However it is 25% sightseeing and 75% food and drink - just think the description should be altered to reflect this.
