We had a great guide in Sebastian who took us to see the sights in Valencia. We had actually booked the parks tour but he suggested an alternative would give us a better view of the main sights which we took on board & did not regret it! We had good training on the segways & found them easy to use & a fab way to see a lot of the city...much more exciting than walking, biking or on a coach. Would highly recommend!

Brilliant way to get to know the city’s history and also to see what the city is like. Maria was kind and brilliant guide, I’d definitely the bike tour.
