Fab tour of the old town, sufficient information delivered by Dani with a sense of humour too! He's an energetic guy and a great guide. As my time was restricted in Valencia, this was the perfect option for me to see some things maybe I wouldn't have on my own and of course to sample some tapas and wines from the region! Highly recommended and alot of fun too!

We participated in the old time walking tour with wine and tapas. Emma, our guide, was knowledgeable, eloquent and fun. The tapas and wine tasting, held in a private secluded venue, was most enjoyable. A selection of delicious tapas was accompanied by the tasting of a variety of local wines. The tour can be highly recommended.

Paulius was amazing! We had a great day, both stops on the tour were great and our host Yolanda at the family vineyard was lovely too! Would definitely recommend booking this, fantastic day out.
