A Wonderful Afternoon soaking up the History & Culture of what has now become one of my favorite city's in the world
Yvonne_C

Had a wonderful time on this tour!! Our guide Emma was absolutely fantastic and a wealth of knowledge and made learning the history of Valencia and City of Arts and Sciences so much fun!! We lucked out and my husband and I had a private tour with her! she was so sweet and incredibly profession the entire time The Tapas and Cava/ Wine tasting were incredible and the view breathtaking!! We had such a wonderful time and really had a chance to absorb the beauty and essence of Valencia!! We were in port from our cruise, The 11am tour was the perfect time for us to meet and after the tour we had plenty of time to shop and explore before having to get back on board at 6:30. Emma even called a taxi for us and the fare was included! The lovely Spanish wines definitely helped loosen my hubby up and made for fabulous time luxury shopping!! We had a great time laughing about all the money I was saving him with prices on designer brands being less than in the US, the 15.9% VAT refund and dollar/Euro parity my purchases "almost free"😂 Thank you Emma for a wonderful afternoon we are Con Sabolla I need the gazpacho recipe so I can go to work on our idea!

Our guide, Emma was delightful. The tour is only exteriors and discussion of the park and it's buildings. Views from the tallest building in Valencia city were quite spectacular and the wine and tapas were excellent. Each course was just a few bites but each was delicious and all were local specialties. Emma shared the history of the food and information about the wine and the digestif, Mistela, that were also all local.

Engaging tour and delicious food
Natt

We experienced a really interesting, engaging and informative tour delivered by our tour guide Emma. She had lots to tell us about the history and architecture of the buildings which we found fascinating. The tapas and wine was really delicious and the serving sizes (food and wine) we're very generous. My only criticism is that the listing for this tour makes it sound like the rooftop experience takes place in one of the city of arts and science buildings. It doesn't - it takes place in a high rise building close by. It's an amazing location and the views are incredible, and I would still 100% recommend the tour, I just thought the website description was a bit misleading and gave the wrong impression.

Great tour and highest viewed of Valencia
Nicole_M
, Jun 2022
Really loved the tour. Interesting to walk about the area and learn about the architecture and history. There was a music festival being set up so there were more people than I think usual congregating in the area. The tour part was only about an hour, and then we were taken to a beautiful rooftop space in a residential building 33 floors up with great views of Valencia. It was windy so we mostly stayed inside, but the food and wine were delicious. Our tour guide and host Emma was amazing. Like the Old Town tour we did, it was more like a friend guiding you around the area, than a tour guide with a backpack speaker and flag. The menu was the same as the Old Town tour but we didn’t mind because we loved all of it. Was nice to look forward to. Will be recommending Sea Saffron to everyone!

This experience deserves more than 5 stars. 5 of us ladies are traveling together and so far this was the best. We did a short tour of the Science Center learning about the amazing architecture. Then the best part began. The food and wine was fabulous. Mimi’s explanation of the tapas and wine was excellent. The view at the rooftop was spectacular. I highly recommend this experience, well worth the price.

10/10 would recommend this tour. The walk around the grounds along with the commentary from Mimi was great to begin with and it just got better at the tapas and tasting. From 33 floors up, you will take in spectacular views. We had five different wines, 10 courses of great food, a great hostess, and great company.
