Day Trip: Albufera Lake Experience
Fernando did an amazing job! He is thoughtful, courteous, and professional. I requested additional information about the wildlife living around the lake and he added a visit to the nature park which was wonderful. We had spent three days enjoying Valencia but were ready for a quieter, natural setting and we found it at Lake Albufera. The boat ride was relaxing and the food delicious. I highly recommend Fernando's Spanish omelette! Fernando explained how the lake water is controlled by gates and used to flood the rice fields. We enjoyed seeing the rice fields even though they are dry this time of year.
We then had a tasty lunch at a local restaurant, my first taste of true paella. Fernando even helped us get the correct tickets at the train station. At the end of our week of sightseeing in Valencia, I asked our group of four what they enjoyed the most and they each said it was the day at Lake Albufera! Thank you, Fernando!
