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!
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.
