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.

We had a great Tour with Nicolas. He mainly explained the architecture of the buildings we visited in and around the City of Arts and Sciences. The way he explained everything gave a very interesting point of view at this fascinating part of the city. Nicolas is a great guide who will make sure you are having a good time with his tour and and will also give helpfull reccomendations for your time in Valencia.
