We loved the Jeep Tour! At first we were a bit nervous about driving off-road. It was so much fun. Nicole and William are great team. It was such a good day and the tapas was soo good! We spent most of our time with William in the other Jeep, we really enjoyed the music William was playing and he did requests for us too. Nicole was great she spent some time with us too in the other jeep and we got loads of good pictures from the adventure. This is one not to be missed!! Thanks so much!

The Oceanografic of Valencia is one of the most beautiful things you can see in Valencia. Beautiful structure, excellent cleaning, hospitality, spaces. The 3D cinema is highly recommended, where you have the opportunity to watch wonderful films about the sea and its inhabitants. In short, if you go to Valencia, you can't miss it!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed the day with my wife and two children aged 24 and 15. Plenty to see and well organised, 4 hours was plenty of time. Even though we went during the Xmas holidays and it was very busy, it didn't hinder our experience, highly recommended.

Visita molto bella, il parco oceanografico è organizzato benissimo e si impiegano diverse ore per visitarlo. Consiglio vivamente di andarci!

Loved it! Especially watching the Mantra rays swimming so elegantly
