Me encantó este tour. Me ayudó a visitar y conocer Valencia mucho mejor y a querer ver más de la ciudad. Los detalles y la historia de los lugares son todo, y este tour es genial en mostrar estos de una manera divertida e interactiva. Había visitado Valencia previamente a este tour hace un par de años durante un par de días y este tour permitió familiarizarse con parte de la historia de Valencia en sólo un par de horas. ¡Fue increíble!

We had a pleasant guide who made the tour interesting. Good introduction to the city. The only downside is that the tour could take longer, it would be interesting to have the option to enter at some buildings. We could keep the bicycles for the rest of the day without any problems or pay extra, including lock.

A beautiful experience: Valencia is the ideal city to get around by bike: full of cycle paths and all in painura. Our guide Alessandra is very good and very well prepared and the Bianchi bicycles are very momode. I highly recommend
