Valentin was very knowledgeable about the history of Valencia and we got to see some really cool things! For next time, when giving tours, please help travelers be aware that most markets close in the early afternoon, so if they want to browse the markets, its good to start those tours earlier.

David was a very entertaining tour guide. We really liked his storytelling style, but if that isn't your thing he's happy to adapt to whatever you prefer. We saw everything we wanted to see, learnt a lot in a short period of time and throughly enjoyed the whole experience.

David was a great tour guide. Easy, very friendly, high quality and great customer service company overall.

Santiago was an excellent guide I recommend to quickly discover the city and also know its lifestyle

Knowledgeable and friendly! The horchata stop added a fun experience!
