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.

About the tour

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.

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.

I am very happy about the tour. Not only Nicolas was very passionate and dedicated with his work and knowledge but he’s also very friendly and nice. He’s very on time as well. Quite lucky to have booked the tour around late afternoon because it wasn’t too hard and he could introduce more about the site. Overall it was an amazing experience!! Really recommend people to give it a go.

Nicolas sabe mucho y puede hacer la distinctión entre cosas importantes y no importantes. Le gusta también responder a preguntas de visitantes. Lo recomendo!
