Valencia's Best With Private Car And Extra Time For Lunch


As Spain's third largest city, there is plenty to see and do during this eight-hour private tour. You will visit Valencia's Mediterranean coast, the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, and the medieval city gates all by private car before entering the historic, pedestrian-only city center, where you will see Roman ruins, the Valencia Cathedral, several plazas, La Lonja Silk Exchange, and more.

Between 1:00pm and 3:00pm, we will stop at one of my favorite local restaurants to enjoy a leisurely and delicious lunch before continuing to explore Valencia. For your tour, you can choose a quick and light lunch stop of tapas an authentic Spanish dish, such as the Valencian paella. I would be happy t join you for lunch, or I can collect you after your lunch is finished, whichever you prefer.

This tour includes private guide and private transportation, but please note that the price of lunch is not included.

Itinerary

Starting at 9:30am at your choice of location, I will pick you up in a private car and take you on a scenic drive of the beach area, the new America's Cup Port, the incredible City of Arts and Sciences Complex, and the medieval city gates.

We will then walk through the historic city center, where you can explore Roman, Moorish, and medieval history with examples from each era. We will stop for lunch around 1:00pm, and you can choose between a light and quick lunch of tapas or a more traditional lunch, perhaps even Valencia paella. True foodies can also experience a delightfully affordable luxury meal at one of the four Michelin star restaurants in Valencia.

After lunch, your guide will take you to explore more of the city center, if you wish, or perhaps take you on a leisurely drive to the local rice paddies just outside of the city or to Albufera, the protected nature park, where you can view the beautiful lagoon.

At the end of your eight-hour tour, I will drop you off at a location of you choice.

Transportation

4 people or fewer - Mercedes Class B (like a small SUV).
4-6 people - Chrysler minivan with tinted windows, leather seats, and electric doors.
7+ people - Please consult.

IMPORTANT NOTE (for groups of 6): In my touring car, the middle two seats are very large and comfortable, and the back seat is a bench seat for 3 people. This may be a tight squeeze, so I need a confirmation that this is alright before I accept the booking. I can also book minibus at an additional charge.

What’s Included

Other: Private car and pick-up with a Mercedes (1-3 passengers) or a Chrysler Grand Voyager (4-6 passengers) and bilingual driver/guide including all driving expenses (gas, parking, etc.). If you are more than 6, I hire a mini-bus with driver for an extra charge.

Entrances to two main monuments or museums: The Silk Exchange or L'Amoina Roman Archeological Museum are the most popular. You can also choose the Cathedral or Marquis Palace, for example. Any additional entrances would be paid separately and are subject to time allowance.

Guided tour by a Spanish-American bilingual professional with more than 12 years in the European tourism industry and official Spanish guide.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
