Tour description

Discover Valencia in a very different way! Sight, taste, smell, hear and touch it, let’s walk in town and try our local cuisine!

The concept of this unique walking tour is combining our most traditional bites with our history.

We will walk in the old town of Valencia and learn about our most important heritage while trying local food, from the fresh orange juice to our Arab influence pastries and medieval street food!
If at the end of the tour you still have some space in our stomach you can try one of most traditional rice dishes! No, I’m not talking about paella… Valencia Region has more than 100 different dishes with rice, you will definitely love  my suggestions 😃

I would like to point that this tour is a dedication to our people, the ones cooking and preserving generation after generation our recipes and local businesses.

⚠️ Important information about payment ⚠️

We will be walking around and I’ll suggest you to try some traditional bites related to the history, the average of spending in eating and drinking during the tour is 20€ (to be paid directly to the local businesses). 

In another hand, this is a tip-based tour therefore at the end of the tour is expected to pay to the guide his work as tour guide 💛

JC is an expert guide and gave us an outstanding foodie walking tour, combining authentic Valencian food stops with historical context, of the area. We visited several bakeries, wine and meat stores. All were excellent. We continued to visit these stores throughout our visit to Valencia. We also utilized JC’s list of recommended tapa/restaurants, and found several gems. Valencia is JC’s neighborhood, and he is proud to showcase all the highlights of it for you. You won’t regret having JC as your tour guide.
