Valencias silk weave history is not one to forget. Wander past the street that still maintains a silk craft workshop today. If youre lucky youll even catch a traditional weaver at work. Make your way to stunning courtyards and little-known plazas that trace the route of the northwestern portion of the Arabic defensive wall from that period.

    A lot of walking but well worth it. The guide took me around the nooks of some of the important streets.

    Marco was a great guide! The tour included historic sites and facts. He carried photos to show the changes the city has gone through. He was charming and informative and you could tell that he loved the city, making the tour more enjoyable.

    Josephine brings lightness and laughter to the walk of the old town of Valencia. She tells stories with a mischievous grin and knows many more than what she gets time to share. She is generous with tips on what else to do and where to eat and great company,.

    Mike was friendly, informative and added a great deal of insight into the history and culture of Valencia. Glad we began our Valencia stay this way.

    My tour guide, Jorge, gave an interesting and well-informed tour ... and since I was having difficulty finding the place to meet him, he came to meet me. The tour made it possible for me to enjoy exploring more on my own later as well. Would definitely recommend this!!

    Regardless how many times you have been in Valencia, do take this walking tour and ask for MARCO! MARCO is so informative, knowledgeable, friendly and communicates in English to perfection. The tour gives you background information about many of the buildings and locations you may have walked past but not given a thought about it's history. Excellent tour!!

    This was a casual and interesting way to see the town center. Mike was a great tour guide. He gave insights into the culture and history of the city instead of simply reciting facts. We saw both the big sites and the side alleys. We recommend it.
