Valencia's Best in 1/2 day with private car


Once you smell the orange blossoms or 'azahar', you'll feel the exotic heartbeat of Valencia, as I did back in 1999. If you want to become part Valenciano by the end of your day, then come with me- I've been converted myself!

If you want to see the Panoramic view of all of Valencia in a short time period, with a local expert and driver, than this is your tour! You will be able to tick off any and all of Valencia's musts, by the end of this well-packed tour.

Spain's 3rd largest city, Valencia is still quaint enough to be under-discovered yet cosmopolitan enough to feel chic in a city sought after for over 2000 years. You will learn about all the historical musts in a fun and interactive way and I'll demonstrate for you how just in Valencia, you can get an overview of Spain's entire history and culture in general right here!

Itinerary

Preferred start time at 9:30 at hotel or cruise ship port, unless requested earlier with specific reason. Return to your requested location or you can remain in the historical center to shop and eat on your own.

This itinerary is the Valencian all-rounded route to see the most emblematic our great city has to offer in a short time. By car, we firstly see the beautiful beach area, the New America's Cup Port, Formula 1 track which is near the port. We will also see the amazing complex of the City of Arts and Sciences by Valencia's own Santiago Calatrava. The Roman, Moorish and medieval center will also be seen with examples from each era. We finish in the historical center by foot seeing, among other unique sites to Valencia, the original Roman remains of the city from 138bc, our Cathedral and other medieval churches, our main plazas, the UNESCO Heritage site of the Silk Exchange, the world's greatest example of gothic architecture on a civil building and the 'Wall Street' of medieval times. Central Market.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Hotel or Port, or other requested spot. ***Please note: If at port, at the 'Acciona Transmediterranea Terminal', which your ship may directly dock at or it may dock a few minutes away. If it is not directly at that terminal, it is a restricted area that only authorized vehicles can go to, for security purposes, so the port provides shuttle buses to bring you the short distance to said terminal.

If you'd like me to make a courtesy phone call to your number, just in case you have any quesitons, then let me know a good time for you and I can do that.

End location: Return to port or hotel, or if you are staying for a typical Spanish lunch, I can leave you at a good restaurant and you may take a taxi back at your convenience

Duration: 4 hours

This can be a flexible itinerary to meet your travel needs.

A Recent Review of this tour

A wonderful guide. Energetic, knowledgable, passionate about showing us the best of Valencia. She was also great at adjusting plans on the fly as when traffic became an issue. She was able to take us to fireworks in the center of the city and arranged an excellent paella lunch. Highly recommended as someone who really knows Spain!
