It was a great and insightful tour! Our tour guide, Dani taught us a lot about Valencia, not only during the tour but also during the tapas and wine moments. The wine selection was amazing, the tapas were unforgettable, and the location was impressive! I definitely recommend this experience! It was the best one in Valencia!

Great tour of the city - it covers every corner. Online, it said there were two lines and the reason we took the 48 hour pass. Unfortunately, it was just one line. Overall, highly recommend. There isn’t much audio if that’s what you like.
