What You Can Expect
Continue through Valencia’s bohemian Old Town, admiring old-school Spanish squares like Plaza Victoria and Plaza Ayuntamiento while exploring its warren of little streets. Gaze at the medieval architecture that abounds and hear how the neighborhood started out as a Roman town.
Ride across to the futuristic-looking City of Arts and Sciences, and pose for pictures in front of it as your guide explains its unique architecture – designed by Valencian Santiago Calatrava. Comprising five buildings including an aquarium – all in a dazzling white – the complex is just as spectacular from the outside as it is inside.
Stop for a break in one of the city’s renowned bars to relax with a plate of tapas and a drink – just as the Valencians do! The tapas dishes will vary each time, but you can expect something like Ibericos ham, aged cheeses, Spanish omelet and salad.
Work it off with a leisurely paced ride back through Valencia’s Royal Gardens (Jardines del Real), and hear about the royal palace that once sat here before being moved during the Spanish War of Independence. Weave along the leafy footpaths and then cycle out of the park toward Paseo de la Pechina – one of the town center’s main streets – where your tour ends.
Our family of five had a wonderful time on this tour, bicycling on a sunny day down a safe and scenic bike path and stopping for Tapas/lunch and seeing the historic old town. Our English guide, Jose, was friendly and responsive to our questions. There were no others on the English tour, so it was great for us. On the same day, there was a large Dutch tour. Half way thru the tour, a bike tech was there to check our bikes. We arrived by taxi, since the bike shop is a long way from where we were staying at the beach (a short way from the bike paths); after the bike tour we returned to the beach area easily by metro/public transport. We felt it was good value to have the bikes, the tour guide, and the lunch.
Our tour was great, it was everything that was promised and even a little bit more. Our guide was excellent, very friendly and the tour covered all the right aspects of Valencia. We had an exciting time, learned a lot and the tapas was just perfect! Would easily recommend to anyone who wants to get a good overview of what Valencia is by bike!
