Beautiful country side. Nice to take a boat ride but not real scenic. We probably spent one or two too many hours there. The paella rice was very good, but the meat was dry. The calamari appetizer was cooked a few hours earlier and not crispy, but the service was excellent. It definitely gave us a good overview of the region. The bus driver was helpful too.

Coach trip to Albufera OK....commentary on bus difficult to understand. Boat trip dull. Lunch was fantastic, great restaurant La Sequiota, staff friendly. Had to wait over half an hour for late coach return and then driver tried to ask for a cash supplement......we declined!!

Booked boat trip with lunch included for 30 Euros each. Driver was great, boat ride fun (At 45 minutes, just right) but the paella lunch was a big surprise. Four courses & everything cooked just ride. Driver even called the restaurant to let us know traffic was very heavy and he might be 15 minutes late. (Nice touch.) Will definately do it again next year.
