Suzie was absolutely delightful! She was intelligent about the history of Valencia, explained well, adapted the tour to our interests and needs, she was patient and cheerful the entire time with us. My family was also enchanted with Suzie, we all felt like because of her we got a very good "taste" of the culture and customs. The foods and places she chose were perfect! I will recommend her tour to anyone traveling to Valencia! She is your country's BEST ambassador!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your lovely review! You made my day, I feel very grateful that I got to show you my Valencia and that your family enjoyed it!

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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Laurie I am very happy to hear that Valencia has become a highlight of your cruise! It was my pleasure to show you Valencia and spend the day with you!
Jeff SchoenwaldUnited States
Suzie is terrific! She gave us a tour of the central food market, which is a veritable Disneyland of food. We couldn't stop buying olive oil, chocolates and other items to take home as gifts. Then we went to our cooking class, which was conducted by a master comic and chef. Then we did a walking tour of the older part of the city, followed by the City of Arts and Sciences. For so short a time in Valencia, Suzie was formidable and a delight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for leaving such a wonderful rating! I loved spending and organizing the day for you. I love the description of Disneyland of food for my beloved Mercado central. I feel like Suzie in wonderland when I am there ;) Gracias!
Robert ZweigSpring, TX, United States
Excellent tour and guide kept us well informed. Loved the bike tour and tour of the market.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for spending your day in Valencia with me. I enjoyed your company very much! Have a wonderful cruise!
Doreen LucadamoUnited States
Suzie was a great tour guide. Since the central market was closed, she brought us to a food store with only Valencia products and also to a typical Horchatta restaurant. She was funny and easy going.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review! It was great to have you as my guests for the day! Next time I hope you have some more time to eat a paella as well ;) You know how to do that now with Paella etiquette...
Joanne McAllisterUnited States
We enjoyed Suzie's love for Valencia, her enthusiasm, and genuine smile. She covered so much of Valencia in a short period of time! We especially enjoyed our culinary journey in Valencia's culture through cuisine. We experienced Valencia through our visits in the markets, Horcharteria, architectural gems and the real Paella Valenciana! Thanks for sharing this beautiful city with us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to guide you and your family! It was a great day and I am sure you know how to recognize a real authentic paella now! no rice with things in it ;)
Mark TamagniUnited States
Suzie was wonderful! She was full of knowledge and historical insight. Her enthusiasm for Valencia, its people, its culture, its lifestyle was fascinating. I was skeptical when I booked my tour because we had never done a biking tour of a city before... I am now a convert! Biking is a much more efficient way to see a city, especially an old one which has narrow streets and alleys. We saw far more on our bikes than we could have ever seen on foot and covered double the miles! Highly Highly Recommend! A+++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mark, thank you so much for leaving me this wonderful review! I am glad you liked the biking as much as I do every day. Valencia is just great to discover by bike because we have such a big park, almost like your central park ;) It was my pleasure to show you my city my way, I loved having you! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip!

Bryan CatanesiUnited States
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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bryan for your kind words and for you trusting me to design your shore excursion. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed it so much! It was a pleasure to have your on the tour, lots of fun! Hope to see you back another time in Valencia some day. Saludos Suzie

Suzie is an energetic, smart and very nice tour guide. She gave us a 3 hr walking tour, in which we were able to see what tourists normally do not get to experience and took us to try delicious foods. She was sweet, knowledgeable and we really recommend her as your tour guide. Muchas gracias Suzie. (Jenny y Raj)

Lawson KileUnited States
Susie was fabulous. She went above and beyond to make our visit to Valencia perfect. She helped us with a car for the day. I wanted to visit the caves of San Jose and it was timed perfectly to arrive at the 1st tour of the day, no wasted time. My wife and 11 yo daughter loved getting to know her. She pre-arranged a beautiful lunch for us. And we hit the highlights of the city of Arts and Science. We saw one of the best dolphin shows on earth. We did not feel rushed or bogged down. Highest Recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating on the tour! I am glad you enjoyed your day in Valencia that much! It was really a pleasure to be your guide in Valencia!
Diane ShuttyUnited States
Suzie was an excellent and very well informed tour guide. She was on time and manuevered around the Grand Prix traffic to take us to the new and old parts of Valencia. She used taxis and they worked very well. Beautiful city and she added so many incites into the history. We were very pleased with our day and didn't mind walking around in the 100 degree plus heat. I would highly reccommend contacting her for a tour. The next time I would like to go into the oceanographic center. It seemed amazing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great review on the tour. It seems you have to come back to Valencia to see the Oceanographic (it is the biggest oceanic park in Europe, I would love to be your guide than again! I think we have seen the main attractions, that is possible in 4 hours.. but there is always more.. You can spend a day in the city and see it all or stay for several years and still find some nice surprises (like me). Again, thank you for the nice time I had giving the tour!
