    De combinatie van ongewone interessante weetjes en culinair genieten op 33hoog was supernice! Sharin en haar team doen dat uitstekend. De guided tour in perfect Engels, al de weetjes over Valencia, de tongstrelende gerechtjes, de fluwelen wijnen waren echt formidabel. Dit alles in een uniek kader; voor herhaling vatbaar!

    Wow! Just wow!! Belen made this experience the best we had on our 2 week trip to Europe. Her wonderful personality and knowledge of Valencia was only the beginning. She makes you fall in love with this place. And that's only speaking of the walking portion of the tour. Then you get to experience a sunset on a rooftop with beautiful music and her impeccable choice of tapas and wine to boot. Which she explains each to you in detail and they just keep coming. I cannot say enough. This is a must for all travelers who want an experience they'll not forget.

    Eduardo is a wonderful host. We entered as 20-30 year-olds and normally we are not that interested in history, but Eduardo can make everything interested! He talks with so much passion, you just want to keep listening and you find yourself asking many questions out of nowhere. The food and wine were exquisite and you get even a story behind everything (if you want) . 5/5 overall

    What an incredible excursion this was. We paid for a private tasting, for four adults. Lara is a very knowledgeable and lovely hostess, she went through every wine and tapas tasting with us, and we were all impressed with the way she made everything so interesting. The tapas were all delicious, and the wines exceptional. The views and the sunset were incredible. We also felt very comfortable with the covid measures deployed, for all our safety. The whole experience looking back was a bargain for the price charged. You can see why this company wins awards.

    I travel quite often & have never experienced such a personalized enjoyable & informative tour! I highly recommend Sea Saffron, what a great way to learn about Valencia & to meet such lovely locals with great knowledge, conversations, spectacular food / wine in a breathtaking setting! Eduardo & Nacho went above & beyond! I can not wait to return to your lovely and hospitable city. Karen

    Our group began our adventure with a tour and dinner/wine with Sea Saffron and it really made my whole week better. I was wonderfully suprised by the rich history and beauty of the region of Valencia. The roof top view during sunset was spectacualr, comfortable and felt very exclusive. Our hosts shared show much detaila bout every drink and every tapa, every bite felt like a culinary experience!

    Een ontzettend mooi ervaring om op het hoogste gebouw van Valencia tapas en wijnen te proeven. Aansluitend een diner gehad en gezellige mensen ontmoet waarmee we de avond hebben afgesloten in Valencia old town.

    This personal small group evening was the best experience! Our host Nacho met us near the park and took us on a wonderful tour of these incredible structures in the park. Then met by our other host Edwardo, we enjoyed the incredible rooftop wine and tapas experience with the beautiful panoramic view of Valencia! These hosts made us feel like friends...which we were by the end of the evening! This is a MUST DO tour! From start to finish, you were taken care of until they put you in the cars to leave!
