A wonderful guide. Energetic, knowledgable, passionate about showing us the best of Valencia. She was also great at adjusting plans on the fly as when traffic became an issue. She was able to take us to fireworks in the center of the city and arranged an excellent paella lunch. Highly recommended as someone who really knows Spain!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your flexibility as well. It was a real joy spending the day with you! Hope to see you and your family back in Spain!

Kate met our expectations perfectly when customizing our tour given our walking issues Her insights on family life in Valencia compared to the US were most interesting and informative. The highlight of the day was having tapas in a plaza with locals dancing on a stage in the center. Beautiful costumes, wonderful music and feeling we were just part of the party! She is the epitome of a tour guide and we would not hesitate to use her if we ever return to Valencia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I do hope to see you back in Valencia some day! Happy holidays!

Kate was a wonderful tour guide who showed us all of the sights of Valencia. We had never been there before and she provided us a custom tour which included the San Jose caves. She drove us to a little village and we were able to see the old Jewish quarter. She took us to a little known archaeological dig where she knew the curator personally and we had a private tour. All in all it was a wonderful day a I would highly recommend Kate for your travels in the Valencia area.

We hire private guides the world over and Kate is one of the best we have been lucky enough to find. Her unbridled passion for her subject transforms her into a raconteur! We were so pleased, we booked her for a full day tour as well. So look no further. Book Kate.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Christine! It was such a treat meeting the 3 of you! Hope to see you again in Valencia or elsewhere in Spain.

We were so happy to have had Kate as our Valencia tour guide - she was excellent!! She was so enthusiastic and had our day well planned so we were able to see many of Valencia's important sites, including a trip to the LLadro Factory which we requested. She was a wealth of historical information at each historical spot and we were able to experience the culture and beauty of Valencia because of this. I highly recommend her to all future travelers to the lovely city of Valencia!

If we could give an extra + we would do so! Kate was absolutely wonderful.

Sarah-Kate is a fabulous guide with extraordinary energy and an effervescent personality. She loves what she does and it comes through as she leads you around Valencia bringing the area to life. Her English is perfect. She knew my wife had a big birthday and greeted her with flowers. She treated us to a traditional pastry and drink. She arranged for us to have lunch in a beautiful famous restaurant. Her fund of knowledge is excellent. She is the best guide you can hire in Valencia.

Two Austin Texas couples that couldn't have been more pleased with Kate...wish we could have taken her with us for the rest of our tours. What a surprise; she knows her history; smart beyond her years; and fun to be with. Such energy and fun. Book with Sarah-Kate (she goes by Kate) and you will return to Valentia because of her! Thank you for a fabulous day, Kate!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are such sweethearts! Thank you and tell Gracie thanks for sharing the pic with me!

Sarah-Kate has an incredible gift for sharing her vast knowledge and expertise of Valencia that we enjoyed tremendously. She was so enthusiastic, it was infectious and made the 'dry' history come to life. We had no idea that Valencia had so much to offer! She also made access to sites as easy as possible for me, who is mobility challenged. PLUS, she knew just the place to share a local treat that we all (4 of us) loved. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Kate was a fabulous guide for our visit to Valencia. Her enthusiasm and passion for the city were contagious, as she guided us through Valencia's old and new charms, even a stop for a local treat... an horchata. She is a born storyteller, and as she shared the tales relating to Valencia's fascinating history, she completely charmed us and made us feel that she was a friend taking us around the city she loves. Our group of four would highly recommend Kate.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Renee! I earnestly enjoyed you four too and thought of you all fondly the following day I participated in my Jewish Tour! Un abrazo!

This tour w/ Kate was a once in a lifetime opportunity, my boyfriend & I took a day tour on 2-23-14 and it was above & beyond anything I could have ever hoped for. Kate's experience, historical knowledge, enthusiasm, stories & genuine care sets her apart & her tour shows you all the most amazing sites and many hidden ones you could never find on your own. I will forever be grateful & cherish the memories her & her husband gave us. We left with amazing pictures,an unforgettable experience & a new friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Alyssa! Thank you so much for such kind words- you both were a joy as well to get to know. I hope I see you back here some day!

My wife and two friends really enjoyed Kate and her upbeat nature. Truly loves and appreciates all there is to offer in Valencia. The fact she's orginally a New Englander was an added benefit. Enjoyed the tapas lunch, all the churches and the knowledge of history and traditions in this beautiful area. Kate met us at the port when our cruise ship arrived and we were quickly off to see the city. Kate, keep up that enthusiasm and your business will flourish. Best Regards- Mike

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU SO MUCH MIKE! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving- I am a little jealous not to be eating turkey back in New England this time of year :)

Kate is a fabulous guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about history and able to share it in very entertaining ways. For example, she had us (a group of 9) demonstrating a Gothic cathedral: some were columns, two were flying buttresses, one was a rose window, and my husband and I were gargoyles. Our grandchildren, ages 11 - 22, were enthralled - as were we. A superb tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Jean- I loved your family too! Hope to see you back in Spain someday!
