Alberto was one of the best tour guides one could hope for! He spoke excellent English (and even better Spanish! Lol). He was informative and personable and ready to answer any questions. This was an excellent way to see these two towns plus the chocolate factory was a special treat. Our planned tour lasted longer than 5 hours but no one was complaining because it was so enjoyable.

Lynn was really informative and both her and Pedro looked after us well! Couldn’t recommend this enough for a taster of Valencia, got to tour the Mestalla stadium as well as explore the whole city by foot and loved the entire day. Only downside would be that it is a long day so I’d make sure you’re well rested.
