Not our favorite tour in Spain

Our tour guide was really lacking unfortunately. It all felt very rushed and there was barely any history discussed. We’ve had some incredible tours in Spain but this was by far the worst. Just no passion for the city or for sharing the history. Didn’t seem like he wanted to be there at all.

I had a wonderful tour with Marcos. The information was well structured and linked together beautifully, so I gained a deeper understanding of the beautifil city and its surroundings. I am a tour guides nightmare as I always have lots of questions, but Marcos was ever patient and I really appreciated the extra information. My inner geek was very happy! In addition, I use a mobility scooter to help me get around and this was never a problem - Marcos took care to make sure the route was easy for me to negotiate, but I never felt that this was a difficulty for him. There were many highlights to the morning, but the two that particularly stick out for me were the Archaeological Museum and the Silk Exchange. At the former, Marcos went out of his way to gain me lift access to the Roman level. As an ardent classicist, this made my very happy indeed. At the Silk Exchange we had an excellent discussion about the similarity of customs and practices in varying countries, as well as my learning the truth behind the funding for Christopher Columbus' first expedition. (You will have to take the tour to find out for yourself!) All in all, it was an excellent experience which I heartily recommend.

Christoff was an amazing tour guide; he gave me a brief description of a different places we passed and also taught me about the interesting street art found all throughout the city center. I left the tour feeling like I knew my way around the city and had some new places to check out in further detail. Great tour to start off a trip!

Marcos did a fantastic job explaining the history of Valencia and the significance of the sites we visited. He took the time to answer all of our questions, sometimes in both English and Spanish, and even recommended places we could try Valencia’s signature cuisine. We had a wonderful time and would definitely book another tour with Marcos.

Differences of Opinion

In all fairness, let me first say the person I was with enjoyed the tour and I felt it was average at best and certainly not worth the price paid. Our tour guide made it clear from the onset that she was only a host and not originally from Valencia; she had only lived in the city the last few years. This was fine but not what I expected at this price. I was expecting a much more historical and informative tour from a residential expert. I felt the information provided was more about our host's personal experiences and beliefs she had formed about the city since relocating there. Again, to be fair we did see a few points if interest we may not have discovered on our own but most of the information provided was general in nature and when we finished I felt we had barley touched the surface of Valencia's rich historical past. The tour guide was extremely friendly and a pleasure to deal with but I would not take this tour again. It was little more than walking the streets and peeking into a few courtyards while getting a very broad overview.

Josephine brings lightness and laughter to the walk of the old town of Valencia. She tells stories with a mischievous grin and knows many more than what she gets time to share. She is generous with tips on what else to do and where to eat and great company,.

My tour guide, Jorge, gave an interesting and well-informed tour ... and since I was having difficulty finding the place to meet him, he came to meet me. The tour made it possible for me to enjoy exploring more on my own later as well. Would definitely recommend this!!
