2. Valencia: 3-Hour Grand Bike Tour & City of Arts and Sciences

The first place we will visit is where it all began, in the old town of Valencia. A unique place in Valencia where you can cycle through the narrow, winding streets of the city centre and soak up the history that sets this place apart. The important contribution of the Romans and Arabs have added their culture to this vibrant city and Pelican Bike will be happy to show you some of its gems. Whether it is the Cathedral of Valencia, the Plaza de la Virgen, the Plaza de la Reina, the Town Hall of Valencia, the Palace of Marqués de Dos Aguas, the central market, the famous Lonja de Valencia, the Torres de Quart or the Puerta de los Serranos. This tour gives you the opportunity to see everything and to learn about these interesting historical sites. After enjoying the busy concrete jungle, we will take our bikes and head to the City of Arts and Sciences. We will cycle along the unique river Turia, but how can you cycle along a river? That's a good question, but the river Turia is actually the perfect place for cycling. There used to be water here, but as this river flooded the city many times, the government decided to divert it and make a park along the course of the old river. So this garden is the perfect place to discover Valencia by bike. Many exotic plants and trees grow in this 9 kilometres long park and it is the perfect place to enjoy a healthy exercise in the open air. So, in addition to Pelican Bike's bike tours, you'll see football pitches, jogging tracks and a variety of sports machines. But this park is not only used for sport, it is also a place for recreation and people like to gather here and enjoy a fun picnic in the sun.

What people are saying about Central Market, Valencia

This experience was an exceptional introduction Valencia on our first night. The tour of the Old Town was well-paced, fascinating and informative, adding considerable insight that you'd completely miss otherwise. The tapas and wine was equally good with an excellent quality and quantity of food and drink accompanied by detailed and interesting explanations of each course, all in a superb private setting. Our guide, Emma, very much made the whole experience with her brilliant knowledge and humour throughout!

This was a highlight in our trip to Spain. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful guide named Dani who made every moment of the tour a delight. He managed to mix history and storytelling in a most entertaining way. The tapas and wine portion was outstanding. Each tapas was hand prepared and delicious. The wine choices were perfect well. We highly recommend this experience.

Olivia was our guide, she was great throughout touring the city, telling us all kinds of interesting bits about Valencia, its buildings, streets, cathedrals... Also described each of the courses after walking through the city, talked about the wines that were served, their histories and origins... A very nice tour altogether.

This is a great tour. I enjoyed seeing all the 11th century walls and also enjoyed wine and tapas tasting. They gave you a lot of food! It was a great experience!

Excellent guide who led us on a very informative tour through some of the most beautiful areas of Valencia and topped it off with some excellent tapas and wine.
