We had a wonderful tour with Sarah-Kate. We saw all the major sights and learnt so much about the history of the city which we had asked her to concentrate on. Because Sarah-Kate has three young children we also learnt a lot about Spanish family life. We enjoyed the combination of a drive to the City of Arts and Sciences and the beach followed by a walk through the old town. We stopped for a taste of horchata at just the right time to catch our breath and welcomed various restaurant suggestions. *****

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Denise and Tom, it was a lovely day with you!

Kate was great, saw great things, did great things and ate great things. The art/ engineering part was especially fantastic as we had an architect in our little group and he was thrilled with it. Just wish the ship's schedule allowed us more time in Valencia. We would have loved more time in the market

Sarah-Kate (Katie) was wonderful! She spoke perfect English, had a delightful, bubbly personality and made us fall in love with Valencia! She even tried to find a restaurant which would serve us Valencian paella but it was not open due to holiday. We tasted Iberian ham in the marketplace (not to be missed), went to the Coves of Sant Joseph, and Sagunto to see the ruins. She brought the ruins to life, telling us its importance in the Punic wars. We loved spending the day with her! She is a gem!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are so sweet Robin- thank you! I had a great day with you all as well! Please come back to visit us!

Sarah-Kate is amazing! We set up the private tour to show us the city and different neighborhoods, since we are planning to move to Valencia in 2020. While we drove around the city, she pointed historical landmarks, provided insights into life in various neighborhoods, took us to the City of Arts and Sciences, and stopped at the beach for a snack. We loved every minute of our time with Kate, and were so inspired by her, that we plan to see her again on another tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's wonderful Hallie and thank you so much! I look forward to having your camaraderie as an expat here- Let me know when you return!

Kate did a fantastic job guiding us through Valencia. We saw far more than I expected including rice paddies, cathedral, market, silk exchange and the science center. She was fun, knowledgeable and very flexible to meet our needs. She knew how to get us around in my unexpected need for a wheelchair. At the end of our tour, she made lunch reservations for us and we pre/ordered our paella which was ready for us and fantastic. I'd highly recommend Kate if you're going to Valencia.

A great, fun day with Kate! She called the day prior to make sure of our plans/meeting point. She is a ball of fun energy. Very informative and very considerate of my mom-in-law's bad knees. We had lunch at a very authentic paella place (with mainly Valencianos eating) and she made sure we had what we wanted. Overall, a wonderful day with a wonderful guide! 2 thumbs up!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Lance! I had such a wonderful time touring with your family, and I hope to see you again sometime in Spain!

Sarah is a dynamo and amazing tour guide! Full of energy and knowledge, we had an incredible time with her in Valencia. She took us on a whirlwind tour of the must-see sights and explained the history of the city with passion and tremendous knowledge. She also took us to a local spot to try refreshing tiger nut "horchata" and "fartons" (pastry you dip in horchata)--delicious! One of the best tour guides ever, we highly recommend Sarah!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh thank you soooo very much Phyllis and Joel. You both were such a nice, vibrant, young couple that it was absolutely my pleasure. Thank you!! Hope to see you back in VLC or somewhere else in Spain sometime!

Sara-Kaye was superb. Lively and her enthusiasm for Valencia and everything we were seeing was wonderful. She put everything into perspective. The history of the region came alive. I would book her again in a heart beat and recommend her to anyone visiting Valencia or nearby areas. We could not have been happier.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Kate. She obviously loves her adopted home. She took us places we would never have visited or known about. We especially liked visiting her village and having lunch at the wonderful restaurant she recommended. She is thorough and don't expect any quiet time during your tour. She also had a genuine interest in our lives which was refreshing. You will not be disappointed with Kate as your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for touring with me! You two were a delight, and I hope to see you again in Spain!

Kate was a perfect guide, with energy and enthusiasm for the history of Valencia and the present day. She drove skillfully around the city to make certain we made the most of our time in Valencia and shared with us the uniquenesses of the fantastic science center. We visited the old town where we walked around to visit all the important sites there. We learned many fascinating stories of the importance of Valencia to the history of Spain and indeed to the entire world. We highly recommend Kate!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Claudia! It was such a pleasure touring with you and Jim, and I hope to see you again in Spain or southern Europe in the future! All my best, Kate.
