We were only in Valencia...

We were only in Valencia for a day so it was nice to have a guide tour before the food. I really enjoyed and the company and most of our group went to get drinks afterward. From previous reviews, I expected more food. I would definitely do a small dinner before or after but otherwise a great experience!

After a tour to the old city, where our guide Bogi gave some good insight, she really surprised our group with a beautifull private patio for the tapas with well chosen local wines. An unforgettable evening!

We had a wonderful afternoon and evening with a small group and our very lovely and knowledge guide Inga. The tour touched on many important and interesting sites but wasn’t overlong. The dinner took place in a cosy historic setting reserved just for the group and the food and wine was wonderful. Inga was a most gracious host and we had a lovely and fun time with the other participants. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.

Worth the money!

We got far more food and wine than expected, and this was worth the money. This is more about the food and wine than touring, so keep this in mind if you are hoping to explore a great deal.
