Hi! My name is Nicolas! I am an architecture student and have been living in Valencia for 3 years. I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to live in many countries, among which are the United States, Canada, Venezuela, Chile, Mexico and my country of origin; Bolivia. I have always been passionate about the cultural diversity and history that exists in each place and one of the things I like the most is to learn about the places where I am. In addition to my university studies, I am a professional pianist and in my spare time I take the opportunity to discover new places or visit the ones I already know to study them more. When I go out, one of my favorite activities is to draw the landscapes that I find on my way. I love this city and it is my passion to be able to teach its wonders to travelers who pass through it.

My friend and I took a tour with Nicolas to visit the city of arts and sciences. It was fabulous and much more than we expected! Nicolas was very knowledgeable and gave us great insights about the architecture of the various bridges and buildings which we passed. We are very happy we took the tour with him. Could not have had a better experience visiting this site. Also, Nicolas gave us additional recommendations e.g. restaurants to visit, which we really appreciated and made use of :) Nathalia & Franziska
