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.
A unique visit of the city through the most beautiful route it could have: the Turia river, an old channel that is currently the main park that embraces all Valencia. The tour takes place along a section of this river, discovering in it natural and unique landscapes for what a metropolis like Valencia is. The visit ends in the symbol of this city: The City of Arts and Sciences, a place where you can take a walk describing each of its buildings, with time to take photos and stop to contemplate and which will make it a place very eager to return more than once. The starting point is the Palau de la Música, a beautiful concert hall facing the Turia River.

- 5-10 minutes of tour presentation and brief overview of the city and the place where we are

-Roserar de Montolivet
-Pont l'Assut de l'Or
- Start of the tour through the City of Arts and Sciences, an architectural complex worth photographing and contemplating, along which we will see the following landmarks:
-Museu de les Ciències
-Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía
- End of the tour in front of the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, a place from which you can easily take a bus or taxi to any part of the City of Valencia or from where it is recommended to walk 2 minutes to the Fallero Museum of Valencia.
The tour will not take place if there are no confirmed reservations. Without any other particular, I hope to guide you through the best of Valencia!

My wife and I had a very good City of Arts and Sciences and the Turia River tour with Nicolas. He knows these places and its history very well. I recommend him very much.
¡El tour es genial y 100% recomendable! Nicolás, la guia turística, conoce al detalle todos los sitios que visitamos y está claro que la arquitectura es su gran pasión. Un tour realmente interesante y profesional. Gracias Nicolás!
Nicolás es un crack y . Vive lo que hace. Entregado a la explicación y acompañado con una carpeta llena de imágenes refuerzando el entusiasmo que derrocha por la ciudad
Nicolás fue un estupendo guía, nos llevó por lugares ideales y nos supo explicar con mucha precisión la historia de la Ciudad y las Artes y las Ciencias. Sin duda, repetiría.
El tour nos gustó muchísimo. Nicolás sabe una infinidad de cosas sobre la arquitectura y la historia de Valencia. Y además es un chico joven se paga los estudios con este trabajo. Muy recomendable.
