with an authentic paella & tastings during the tour

We will pack all the best Valencia has to offer in this 8 hour private tour.
I love to show you all the highlights of the city like the modern city of arts and sciences but also the historical pedestrian center with some more hidden gems. I will treat you on a market tasting of lots of local products like the famous Iberian hams, cheeses, olive oil, sweets etc.
Around lunch time we will go to the countryside for a real authentic paella experience. We will finish our tour with a very relaxing boat ride over the Albufera lagoon where we can spot many bird species and we'll be surrounded by ricefields.

A full day of experiences!

A Recent Review of this tour

Suzie was a breath of fresh air - smart, knowledgeable and fun. Taking us to the City of Arts and Science early in the morning was wonderful. Her multicultural background added a lot of depth to our tour. Made Valencia a highlight of our cruise!
