Hello, My name is Boyan. I have moved to Valencia just 3 years ago. I have spent the previous 11 years in London where I lived and also worked in the hospitality and tourism. I am a history and architecture enthusiast, and even though I am not a native Valenciano I know a lot about the past and present of this amazing city which I truly love and I will be more than happy to share my knowledge with you.

Tour description

We will begin our adventure at Puente de Serranos. We will go down to the Turia Park right under the Serranos Bridge and will take the cycling alley which heads to the City of Arts and Sciences. On our way through the beautiful Turia Gardens, we will pass under the ancient Puente del Real, the modern Exposición Brudge, and the amazing Palace of the Music and its surroundings.
Then we will get to the ultramodern and futuristic complex of the Cuidad de las Artes y las Ciencias, where we will stop for a while so everyone can have a picture or two here, and meanwhile I will give you a lot of interesting facts about the creation of this unique complex.
After that, we will have our way down to the Port and Marina of Valencia taking the cycling alley of Calle Menorca and Avenida del Puerto. Reaching the port area we will get to the beautiful beaches of Valencia called Playa Las Arenas and Playa Malvarrosa. Here we can either walk alongside the beach or take the nearest cycling alley to get to the historical district of Cabanyal. Cycling slowly through Cabanyal I will explain its history and nowadays life.
Then we will get back to Avenida del Puerto and we will start our journey back. Using the cycling alley of Avenida del Puerto we will get to the magnificent Plaza Zaragoza. Then we will keep riding alongside the Park of Alameda, The Royal Gardens, and the Museum of Fine Arts. Crossing the riverbed of Turia by the Fusta Bridge we will get back to our starting point.

During the tour, I will give you a lot of interesting facts about Valencia's past and present and I will try to answer all your questions. I will be more than happy to give some recommendations about other interesting places in and around Valencia.

Boyan’s bike tour was the highlight of my stay in Valencia. He went above and beyond to show us the gems of the city, including extra few stops we appreciated so much and it ended up 3 hours of an amazing discovery. Valencia is such a bikable city so it’s a great way to familiarize yourself with different neighborhoods and main points of interest. I appreciated his insider tips on what places are really worth it and which ones are just a tourist trap. It’d make a lot of sense to take the tour in the first days of your stay. Boyan is really knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the city and it comes through. It’s a small group only, you get a lot of attention and feel safe on a bike because it's just a few people. Loved the tour and highly recommend it!

We had a great time with Boyan. Valencia is an awesome city and he’s an awesome guide. Great with the history and architecture,. The ride was beautiful and he provided just the right amount of updates over the course of about 2 1/2 hours. He’s a great sense of humor, and provided some very practical advice for us for the following through four days while we are here. He also very kindly gave us a private tour as three of the other guests that had booked cancelled late the day before. Certainly he could’ve cancelled us as it meant less revenue for him however, he stuck with his commitment and showed us a great time. Book him if he is available
