Hi! My name is Nicolas! I am an architect and have been living in Valencia for 5 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 architecture activities, 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.

No sé si el mejor tour que he hecho jamás, pero si de los mejores. Nicolás nos explicó muchísimas cosas sobre los lugares del tour, así como de la ciudad de Valencia e incluso introduzco información a cerca de otras ciudades y países que tenían que ver con el tour. Se nota que le apasiona lo que hace, nos respondió a todas las dudas que nos surgían, incluso si no estaban relacionadas 100% con el tour. Nunca hubiese pensado que fuera tan divertido hacer un tour, nos reímos y aprendimos muchas cosas. Muchas gracias Nicolás por la experiencia tan buena que tuvimos contigo. Recomendamos a todo el mundo que quiera visitar Valencia que reserve este tour.
