Beautiful but not a lot to see for the amount of time spent

Beautiful country side. Nice to take a boat ride but not real scenic. We probably spent one or two too many hours there. The paella rice was very good, but the meat was dry. The calamari appetizer was cooked a few hours earlier and not crispy, but the service was excellent. It definitely gave us a good overview of the region. The bus driver was helpful too.

Meal was amazing.

Booked boat trip with lunch included for 30 Euros each. Driver was great, boat ride fun (At 45 minutes, just right) but the paella lunch was a big surprise. Four courses & everything cooked just ride. Driver even called the restaurant to let us know traffic was very heavy and he might be 15 minutes late. (Nice touch.) Will definately do it again next year.

La excursión ha sido genial, todo el personal encantador y muy servicial. El paraje espectacular y la comida muy buena. El único aspecto negativo es que Getyourguide es un intermediario, a pesar de que nos mandaron 3 emails con la información, no nos comunicaron que el cambio de lugar del punto de encuentro por lo que perdimos el autobús, ya que se trataba de una parada a mas de 15 min andando. Todo quedó muy bien solucionado gracias al personal de busturistic no de Getyourguide
