We ended our tour at Justice Square and learned all about the significance of the bat to the city of Valencia. If you sign up for this tour, request Valentin. You won't be disappointed. He talked and walked at a reasonable pace and encouraged questions, 5 stars plus.

Absolutely fantastic. A brilliant way to explore the amazing city of Valencia. Our guide Luca was great company and had all the knowledge required for the history of this beautiful place. Luca was very flexible and dropped us at the aquarium to end our tour so we could explore that. A really fantastic morning and the best way to see the city. Absolutely charming.

This tour was one of the highlights of our Valencia trip. Lucas was fantastic. We recommend doing it early on in your stay as it really helps to orientate you with the city, and Lucas gives some great restaurant, taxi and and bar recommendations. 10/10 would recommend.

The tour surprised us. Santiago, our guide, gave a very pleasant and explanatory tour. We would definitely do it again.

Marcos was great. Was flexible in adjusting the tour to our interests and schedule. Highly recommended.
