Matías was a fabulous and gracious host who went above and beyond to provide the guests with an unforgettable experience. I learned something, met new people, shared some laughs, and left with a full stomach - what more could you ask for! The venue was also unbeatable. Matías also went out of his way in suggesting further recommendations for things to do in Valencia, which really gave some additional local insight that makes traveling so much more enjoyable. Cannot recommend this enough to anyone else visiting Valencia.

We decided to take the Tuk Tuk tour early on our 3 day visit to Valencia just to give us an idea of what to see and where things were located. Great we did. Had a great 2 hour trip guided by Roberto who was very knowledgable and highlighted many of the cities key things to check out. Would definitely recommend. Unlike other cities the Tuk Tuks are not located on every corner. You need to book in advance and start the tour from the tourist hub at the “Nordstation”.

Wonderful way to tour the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We got to get off the tuk tuk to walk and explore in a few places, which was nice - a good mixture of driving and walking. I liked how it was open air and a small private tour for our family of four.

Jose was our tour guide who was really friendly and flexible with where we wanted to go given it was just a few of us. He was informative and being a local, he had good knowledge. Definitely a good way to see the old town and new Valencia.

Brilliant tour and made all the better by our guide, Belen. such a lovely person, very informative and friendly. really enjoyable and very high standard of food and wines
