Got Charged for this Despite It Being Cancelled

The tour was cancelled 15 minutes prior to start, and I was never reimbursed. They texted saying it was cancelled and I would be refunded, but that never happened. Shame! Shame!

Best way to start your visit to Valencia. We learned about the history of the city, key landmarks, architectural details we would otherwise miss completely... which made the rest of our visit so much more meaningful. Andres was a great guide, one of the best we had in our travels. Knowledgable, willing to answer questions and explain and take us to different parts of the city where most tours don't visit.Great experience!

My partner and I enjoyed Valencia so much we wanted to learn a little more about the history of the city/area. We found this tour and thought it sounded like a great way to spend our afternoon and we were right. The guide was incredibly informative, engaging and friendly. He knew a significant amount about Valencia and connected its history to the modern city. He also gave us some excellent suggestions on other areas to visit while we were in town that we certainly did. I highly recommend going on this tour while you are in Valencia.
