Our tour of Valencia started in light drizzle and continued on through the worst thunderstorm so far this year in Valencia. According to locals it only rains on 15-30 days a year. Despite the problem of trying to keep three soaked tourists engaged Jorge really was excellent and gave us a great insight into the marvels of Valencia. He was charming,witty and in no time at all the tour was over. We left feeling that we had been with a good friend rather than someone we had hired for the day. excellent guide.
