Tour description

Don't miss this historical tour of the most important places in the city led by a local historian!

Our tour is the best way to have a first contact with the city. We will take you through the most important monuments of the city, we will explain its history and its anecdotes so that you can get to know it in a way that would not be possible without a guide.
From Gothic to Baroque, from narrow streets to wide squares . We will talk about our festivals, our gastronomy and folklore . The objective is not only to better understand the city, but also to know how to find your way around it better, with recommendations on places to visit, where to eat and where to go out at night.
Keep in mind that we are local guides and we know our city like the back of our hand. Do not hesitate to ask us anything that is of interest to you, we are here to help and guide you during your visit.
Do you want to know why we burn monuments more than 20 meters high in our streets? When was the city founded? What influences has Muslim culture left on today's society? Why has the old bed of the Turia River given rise to a large green area? We will talk about this and much more during the tour.
Our visit begins at the Puerta de Serranos , which welcomes us to the Historic Center of the city, where we will walk discovering its past, its legends and its traditions. We will come to see the palaces of the Valencian capital, such as the Palau de la Generalitat , and we will enjoy the most unique building in the city, the Lonja de la Seda , declared a World Heritage Site and one of the best examples of European civil Gothic. We will also talk about the Royal Church of Santos Juanes and the famous Central Market , a symbol of Valencia. After discovering the Plaza Redonda and the Church of Santa Catalina, we will finish our tour in the Plaza de la Virgen after surrounding the Cathedral with its well-known bell tower, the Micalet , undoubtedly the icon of the city that dominates its historic center.
Come visit the city with us! We want you to fall in love with Valencia as much as we do so that it is that place where you will want to return. Join this adventure and enjoy a unique and surprising city for its character and beauty.
