Watch the magnificent Gran Circus Maximus at Villajoyosa with an entrance ticket followed by a themed dinner.

Sit in an amphitheater like a true Roman of a bygone era and watch as legend becomes spectacle and the heroes of yesteryear come to life in the form of fearsome warriors. Watch as strong gladiators fight for their freedom and become an active part of the show. Once you've had your fill of excitement, continue your authentic Roman evening with a themed dinner in an atmospheric setting. Dine on a magnificent array of dishes from a "druid salad" (Mediterranean salad) to "legionnaire's delicacy" (barbecued ribs), and from "root with garum" (Welsh potato with Provencal herbs) to capricho de Júpiter (cream of two chocolates). Cheers and quaff your sangria and beer while priestesses of Vesta put on a dramatic dance show in the background.

Alberto was one of the best tour guides one could hope for! He spoke excellent English (and even better Spanish! Lol). He was informative and personable and ready to answer any questions. This was an excellent way to see these two towns plus the chocolate factory was a special treat. Our planned tour lasted longer than 5 hours but no one was complaining because it was so enjoyable.

Excellent tour from start to finish despite a rainy day! Our tour guide Alberto was fantastic. Very informative and interesting with really detailed local knowledge of an area of Spain we love. This was a great quality tour that took us to a couple of places we wouldn’t otherwise have seen.

This was an amazing tour showing old fishing villages, an old wall encircling the village, built originally to keep pirates away. Plus a visit to a fantastic chocolate factory. A most relaxing, enjoyable day.

Beautiful places. Lovely landscape all the way. Excellent guide, Alberto, pleasant,informed on all points. The tour was worth it.

The guide was super nice and helpful. You should have seen the places. I can totally recommend!
