    Our guide Sonja, was amazing and worked with us even when we missed our bus. She arranged to meet up with us so we could join the tour. The tapas with wine was the best part and she was every accommodating and knowlegeable.

    Sharin was a fantastic guide. She was so full of enthusiasm for what she was showing us. She had to be very flexible as we started out with more people than car space (were two excursions merged?). None of us were expecting the number of tapas that we were offered or the quantity and quality of wine. She also was able to tell us about each wine which enhanced the experience. The venue was interesting with a patio that was bordered with a wall from the 11th century and modern settings. I would definitely recommend Highlights of Valencia with Sharin.

    This was an absolutely fabulous tour. Valencia is a beautiful city & we were so impressed with both the old & the new town showcased in this walking tour. Then to top it off, the tapas & wine experience was phenomenal. Sharin was a fabulous guide & hostess. The food was delicious & plentiful, as was the wine. Would highly recommend this tour — probably the best of all tours taken this trip.

    The guides were wonderful they did everything we expected. I can’t give this tour 5 points is because we never got to the 34th floor for tapas and wine. Be very careful in booking this tour if you expect to go to the 34th floor. We had Tapas and wine on the first floor of their office building not even close to 34 floors. They advertised we would eat on the 34th floor. Buyer beware!!!!! The guides were very very good and tried to do their best to make up the difference.

    Fantastic excursion. Kate and Bogie (sp?) we’re just fantastic. We were met at cruise terminal and taxied to the the Science and Art Center for informative tour and magnificent buildings. We had 15 people and split up into two groups for a very personal tour. Then taxi again to Old Town for up close tour of the city and the sights. Then we were taken to their private venue for an amazing tapas and wine tasting. The venue was quite, intimate and the tour group really got to know each other. I think we had 11 different tasty tapas as well as Cava, white and red wines. All Spanish and remarkable. The food was abundant and the wine flowed. This is probably one of the best excursions we have ever done and we done a couple hundred or more. Don’t pass this opportunity up.

    Sharin was a wonderful guide. She was enthusiastic and informative. We are older adults and she provided a nice comfortable pace of walk through old & new town Valencia. The real highlight was the tapas & wine tasting on the 33rd floor overlooking the city. We only had a party of 7 adults. We felt like we were visiting friends instead of being on an excursion with strangers! There was plenty of superb tapas and an ample amount of wine to sample. Both excellent quality. Thank You 😊

    What a fantastic tour! The mix of old and new Valencia is astounding! We’re so pleased we took this tour as we feel we would have missed half the locations on our own - let alone the history behind it all! We didn’t know any of the persons with us when we started, but by the end of the tapas and wine, it was like we were at a great celebratory family meal! We were supposed to end and have tapas at an 11th century monument, but found ourselves ending at a rooftop location with spectacular views instead - and quite honestly found it to be a fantastic addition to our experience

    This was an amazing tour of both the old and new parts of Valencia, including incredible food and views, a wonderful tour guide, and a great price!

    We've had a tour with Eduardo, and what can I say? It was an excellent experience. Edu guided us through the old and modern town of Valencia and showed us the remarkable hot spots of the really lovely and vibrant city. The highlight of course were the tapas and the well selected wines of the Valencian region. I definitely will repeat a tour with Seasafron! Highly recommending the tour. Thank you, Danke, Edu and see you soon! Fabian from Germany!

    Excellent walking tour around the City starting at the Science area then a short Taxi ride to the old town our Guide Sharin was very informative about both areas she was friendly and fun and then in the old town we had lots of Excellent Tapas with some great wines from the region I was very surprised with the amount of food and drink included and Sharin was very knowledge about this too. Some suggestions to add to this tour maybe offer the opportunity to buy the wine we tasted and some recipe card for the tapas would be great too. The only very small criticism would be the taxi booking to get us from place to place seemed a little unprofessional although it did work. Overall a very good tour I would totally recommend this if your in port at Valencia.
