Really enjoyed learning to ride the segway and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about what she told in a genuinely enthusiastic way. All in all the tour was very enjoyable. Sidenote: I did hurt myself when speeding a couple of times because my brain automatically did something different than I was taught to on the segway when things went wrong (likely because I'm used to biking) so do be careful when trying out the speeding option in the city.

Excellent guide. Knowledgeable and fun. Great coaching to start with and a fine tour around medieval Valencia to follow. Only praise for this experience. I definitely recommend it to others. Great value for money.

It was a very interesting tour made most enjoyable with fun facts and great historical explanations by Gabi. She was a mine of entertaining facts and is a great guide. Highly recommended.

Very competent and motivated guide who answered all questions - and was always "on the air" despite over 40 degrees!

An original discovery of Valence with a great guide who also adapted to children. We highly recommend this original city tour!
