Amazing value - the walking part of the tour is OK but it’s the food and drink that stand out. Several small plates were served in the courtyard, all excellent and involving fresh Valencia produce, then we moved indoors to a long table in a very stylish combination of 21st century wood and 12th century stone walls. This encouraged conversation between the different small groups (12 of us in total) and we were then served the larger plates - stand out were the chorizo Welsh Rarebit, squid ink rice and sweet peppers and garlic on light toast. In all 11 courses (including superb olives and nuts) and tasters of several Valencia reds and whites - seemingly a bottle per head judging by the empties. All excellent, led by charming and friendly Belen, and brilliant for £50 (€65 according to the Irish contingent in the tour). Do it.

Belén, our tour guide and host, was lovely and super friendly. She took us around for about an hour and got to visit a couple of churches and hear history of a few buildings. Plus got to know her life story a little which felt personal. The venue we went in was so cool, a mix of a 1000 year old wall and new design. It had a patio and beautiful indoors. The cava, vino blanco and vino roso were flowing freely in addition to tasty tapas! The food & wine experience continued for 3,5 hours! I felt it was gorgeous and we were all so full! I met fantastic people and had interesting conversations. Highly recommend this experience!

Mathias was a wonderful guide and did an amazing job navigating us around the city. The food served was absolutely superb and surpassed only by the quality of the wines that were provided. I would highly recommend this tour as a way to get to know the city and know that we will be doing this tour when we return to Valencia in the future.
