Delicious Valencia: the 10 Tastings Food Tour

Do this tour when you first get to the city - it’s a fun way to find out what and where to eat! We spent 3 very pleasant hours walking around the old town with Bjorn who was knowledgable and entertaining. He introduced us to small eateries which we would have walked past by ourselves but which served great tapas with a real local feel. Thanks Bjorn - great job! We’re off to sample more Agua de la Valencia tonight (and Paella without peas!)

Marie Costas

Acropolis Skip the Line & Hidden Gems Tour

Costa was very nice and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our visit with him and clearly left it knowing more. Contrary to many guides we saw we just told myths stories, Kosta knew a lot about actual life in Ancient Athens, religion, architecture, etc. We especially liked the visit of the Acropolis museum and really feel we couldn't have made sense of it without him.
The only downside was that the visit of the Acropolis began at 8am, at the door opening, and we wished we went directly up to the Acropolis to take advantage of the absence of crowd instead of spending time downhill first.

A customized trip with Pili

We really enjoyed and learned so much on our tour with Pili. Her unique perspective on architecture of the La Sagrada basilica and use of light and materials added so much to our experience and appreciation of this Gaudi masterpiece. Thank you Pili
