Being a tourist guide is the only job I have done since I finished my studies in Tourism and obtained the official qualification to work as a guide. Among the many options offered by the tourism sector, I chose this one, because I like to contact diverse people and share the knowledge that I have acquired over the years.My goal is to try to ensure that whoever visits us optimizes their stay in the town. A good visit can start with a simple step.

About the Tour

The visits that most tourists tend to do and due mostly to lack of time, are limited to passing through the sites taking only a few photos. We left a lot and very interesting to know.
Taking advantage of the fact that entry is not paid on Sundays, we visit two jewels of Valencia that place us in totally different times and styles: Gothic and Baroque.
We begin the visit at the Palacio del Marqués de Dos Agua s, an authentic jewel of Baroque architecture in Valencia.
We visit the interior of the Palace with its luxurious rooms , such as the Ballroom, the Porcelain Room, the Marquises' bedroom, etc.
We will also know everything about ceramics , its evolution over the centuries, from Islamic times to the present day. Among the treasures that the museum keeps , we have a Valencian cuisine from the 19th century and some pieces made by Picasso. Without a doubt, the Palace holds very interesting stories.
Our next stop will be at La Lonja, a masterpiece of civil Gothic architecture in Europe . In the most prosperous time of Valencia, the XV-XVI century was one of the main centers in Europe for the contracting of silk , so it is also known as "Lonja de la Seda" as it could not be less, it is Heritage of the UNESCO.
Do not miss the opportunity to know these "jewels" of Valencia

Me ha encantado el Tour. Dora, la guía, es una profesional muy experimentada, con muchos conocimientos sobre los edificios que hemos visitado, además de aportar datos sobre aspectos culturales e históricos de Valencia que completaban la visita o sobre edificios por los que hemos pasado en el trayecto del Palacio del Marqués de dos Aguas a la Lonja que eran muy interesantes. Es una guía muy buena y muy didáctica. La recomiendo al 100%.
