Cristina is a person who considers herself above all enthusiastic, vital, empathic and lover of her work. I have a lot of experience working with tourism from all over Europe, especially from the United Kingdom, a country that I know quite well, since I have lived, studied and worked in it. I have also lived in Paris for work as a mail guide and in Brussels. I have a lot of sense of humor and the smile is a must in my personality a little bit crazy you know. Since the guides are made of a special pasta hehehe. As an authentic Valencian, I am a fan of Fallas, as well as my family. I know every corner of my city, and accustomed to walking, I would love to involve the group, from a somewhat less visited area: THE BIOPARK I have studied tourism and translation and have worked in the tourism sector for a long time leading groups of British, French and Germans. I love the interaction with other cultures and above all, to be a mediator among the people who come to know our country, culture, traditions and landscapes. It is wonderful to get that after the tour, the group returns happily to their place of origin, with a positive conception about the place they have visited. And there it is we, the guides, who have that great responsibility and duty to transmit all the best.

About the tour

Our meeting point, the North station has a lot of history to tell, we will make a previous presentation, explanation of the station and contextualization in general features of the city of Valencia.

I will direct the group to the Town Hall Square. There I will explain the Post Office building, like the Town Hall's own. I will take this opportunity to create a cultural chapter about Fallas.

We would continue through San Vicente and visit La Plaza Redonda, until it flows into the old town: The Santa Catalina Tower.

From there I will drive you to the Plaza de la Reina and we will enter fully into the whole of the Cathedral of Valencia to the Plaza de la Virgen de los Desamparats.

I will show you the Roman remains of the Almoina square, while I tell you its history. We will continue walking until we reach one of the remaining doors of the Valencian wall: Las Puertas de Serrano.

From there we will go up Santa Anna until we enter Caballeros Street and contemplate together the medieval and narrow streets that remain in the old town of Valencia.

We will finally arrive at the Lonja de Valencia and the Central Market. And we discovered in the same area a wonderful church: Santos Juanes.

I will make an explanation of each place and I will always accompany you to the starting point: Nord Station.

Alternative Route: The City of Sciences. We take bus line 95 and cross the Turia Gardens.

For organizational purposes, it is mandatory to book the tour. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

El tour fue muy interesante y ameno. Nada pesado, por lo que lo recomiendo 100%. Nuestra guía Cristina es muy simpática con mucho conocimiento de la ciudad, de la historia y del arte pero sin agobiar de modo que las horas pasaron volando.

Y cómo extra al tour Cristina nos ha dado mucha información y recomendaciones de sitios donde comer, tomar una copa y actividades en la ciudad.

Sin duda no pueden perderse este tour
