Great tour of the city including stops and visits to the central market, silk exchange, quart tower (including climbing to the top), city of arts and sciences, and the archeology museum. Perfect way to see and experience the city, and get a great bike ride in through the turia park. Will probably take the same tour the next time we come to Valencia!

Great way to see the interesting parts of the city. Nice to be in a small group. Guild was very helpful and informative. Short rides between stops. Time was given to explore some areas on foot.

It was a very nice bike ride. Nice variety between facts about history and contemporary developments. Rick was a super guide and occasionally left space to take pictures.

Loved getting off the bike and walking through museums etc. no long lines or over scripted tours. Covered a large area of Valencia

Loved it! Well organised, saw the main sights and the tour guide very informative.
