Explore the tastes as well as the sights of Valencia with a private foodie guide
If you love eating, exploring & having fun this is the right tour for you!
I was always interested in the world of wines and Spanish cuisine and thanks to my mum I learned how to prepare delicious recipes. I absolutely love shopping in the "Mercado central" it's a place where I get inspiration for trying new recipes and buy my fresh products. Besides it's a place where locals meet and gossip.
The yummy tour is my favorite because we will discover Valencia, using all our senses. We will be visiting the Central market where we will be trying delicious products like Spanish ham, local cheese, olive oil with a glass of Cava or fresh juice from Valencian oranges. You will learn about the typical dishes and products. Then we will stroll around the Old Town, visiting all kinds of great food stores and tapas bars in each place we will do tastings. Some historic, some modern and fancy, I will open all doors for you.
Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests. We can add more time to the tour and include other parts of the city or monuments. Please let me know your wishes

Suzie is amazing. She was amazing from start to finish. In advance of our arrival she worked so well with us. We combined two of her 3 hour tours into one 5 hour bike tour including Tapas and Sangria. We did a bike tour all around Valencia, the gardens and the old city. It was amazing. Then we turned in the bikes at the old city. This was wonderful because there was no back tracking. Then we did a walking tour with several stops. Then a stop for local wine tasting and finally a stop for tapas and Sabgria
