What people are saying about Valencia

My wife and I are so glad we went on this Jeep Mountain experience. One of our most memorable activity whilst in Valencia. Nicole was really pleasant from the start, picking us up from our accommodations with her yellow jeep. She's so knowledgeable and engages with us on our drive towards the mountains, not to mention her music playlist which deserves a thumbs up HAHA! Can tell that she really loves doing this. Once we were off the main road, we were brief on what's the activity sequence, and we each got the chance to drive the jeep up the mountains. Nicole was really patient in guiding us, as we were a little rusty with driving manual cars so all went smoothly. The scenery and panoramic view at the top was splendid. The hike was not tough at all. We got down to a communal area with tables and chairs and we served with drinks of our choice, soda, water or beer along with a plate of cold tapas. No regrets signing up for this! Take this chance to drive a Jeep up the mountains & enjoy

José took us and we had a very good time. He was very kind and had all the patience for us to be able to enjoy each stop and take photos. Very nice to tour the streets of Valencia by bicycle (very good bicycles). I highly recommend it

The trip was great. It left on time, the paella was delicious and there was plenty of time to chill or swim. There is also the option to buy more drinks from the bar.

Great fun trip, our guide Nicole great fun and knowledgable, only one of its kind in the area, took loads of pics which she then forwarded us. would do again!!

Awesome Cruise!!! Paella was delicious and the swimming was also great! I would definitely recommend it!
