Wonderful tapas, wine and rooftop view
This experience deserves more than 5 stars. 5 of us ladies are traveling together and so far this was the best. We did a short tour of the Science Center learning about the amazing architecture. Then the best part began. The food and wine was fabulous. Mimi’s explanation of the tapas and wine was excellent. The view at the rooftop was spectacular. I highly recommend this experience, well worth the price.

Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
10/10 would recommend this tour. The walk around the grounds along with the commentary from Mimi was great to begin with and it just got better at the tapas and tasting. From 33 floors up, you will take in spectacular views. We had five different wines, 10 courses of great food, a great hostess, and great company.

Wine, Tapas and sightseeing

Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
This was an illuminating trip and wine tasting/meal and we all enjoyed the whole time. However it is 25% sightseeing and 75% food and drink - just think the description should be altered to reflect this.

Valencia's City of Arts and Sciences Tour
Amazing exhibits and would highly recommend anyone with or without children to go. Our guide was perfect as she engaged with our children and took us to all the important areas as it could be overwhelming as there is so much to see. 3 hours was perfect for our family.

Fun and Amazing Time for solo traveler

Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
I was traveling alone but wanted to learn a little history and try some new foods and wine while I get settled into the new city. This tour was the perfect most amazing tour. Our group was small, just two of us, but I had the best time. Belen was an amazing guide. She answered all of our questions, was friendly, and served some amazing wines and food. The view is at sunset is like nothing you have ever seen before. I had great conversation even with such a small group and the ride back home without having to walk was much appreciated. I absolutely recommend this tour and Belen. It was such a fun way to start your exploration of Valencia!

Valencia City of Arts & Sciences Tour with Rooftop Wine Tasting and Tapas
This was my favorite day of my whole trip to Spain! The tour guide was super fun and we had an absolute blast. I was grateful to have someone explain about the City of Arts and Sciences because honestly, while I can appreciate that it looks cool, I didn't know anything else about it. My guide was knowledgeable about the different buildings and the adjoining park. She also took us to great spots for photos - they turned out to be the best pictures from my whole trip, too! And the FOOD! Oh my gosh. We had SUCH a blast during our rooftop tasting! 10 courses indeed! And cava and wine and music - and that VIEW! 10/10 would recommend. I had a blast and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
