Arrived in Benidorm and decided we would spread our wings and visit somewhere else during our stay as we have been to Benidorm before and we have seen all it had to offer. The wife found Get Your Guide and booked the coach trip to Valencia. I was dubious as I've been on trips like this which have been pretty poor. Luckily for us, the pickup point was right outside our hotel. When we were on the coach we were introduced to a lot of options for additonal trips but I liked that it didn't feel like a pressure sell. We decided that as we had 5.5 hours in Valencia and rather than just wander round aimlessly for 5 hours as we usually do, we booked the guided tour of Valencia and the trip to the Aquarium where we would be collected from. Other than the god awful service at the McDonalds round the corner from the drop off point (yes I know.... it was a McDonalds) the trip was brilliant. Doing both of these trips broke the day up and gave us at least an hour between to have a quick snoop round

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.

A great opportunity to see what's outside Alicante. You will visit Villajoyosa with his colorful houses and the white village of Altea. Alberto is an excellent and experienced guide and very friendly and can give an answer to all your questions. Great tour. Thanks Alberto.

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.

very good experience tour guide was excellent very knowledgeable and friendly
