This was the largest city we did a Hop-On tour (the others were Cadiz and Lisbon) and it was the oldest and less well kept. It is still a good way to see the city highlights.

Tour bus did not show up at port by 10:45 so ended up taking taxi to city center. From there then was able to do both routes and see all we wanted. Need to inform everhone the actual time will first come to port and suggest they get to city center on their own so as to not waste time.

I have been on very good Viator tours, but this is not one of them. First, it was indicated that there was a bus stop near the port. The bus stop was actually a long walk from the port and hard to find. Second, I paid extra for the bus plus a walking tour. When I reached the stop for the walking tour, I inquired about it. The bus representative mumbled something about "every 30 minutes" and walked away. I waited 30 minutes, and no one showed up. The same rep returned to the stop. I asked again about the walking tour, and he then said for the first time : "The walking tour is at La Lonja (Silk Exchange)". When I asked where La Lonja was, he pointed to a street and said : "Straight down that streeet". La Lonja was NOT straight down that street, and I wandered around until I finally found it. Most of the walking tour was spent inside La Lonja, where we told minute details about the building. Therefore, I lost two hours to take that worthless walking tour. Third, the audio system on the bus was terrible, and I heard only parts of the narration. Valencia is a really beautiful city, and I wish I had taken another tour, so that I could have truly enjoyed it.

Unfortunately the Valencia tour was the worst city tour I have taken. It lasted an hour and a half and there was nothing of intertest to see at all. Not one of our group, a party of 7, enjoyed it. None of the passengers on this tour got on or off during the entire trip. The stops seemed to be in the middle of nowhere and you certainly wouldn't want to wait at any of them for the next bus to come along. We took the red line tour and not the maritime blue line so I can't rate that one. The best part of the tour is actually the pretty little square with cafes and wine bars where you join it. We really needed that drink at the end of it!

It was an ok trip around Barcelona but making us search for the ONLY down town toruist info center to pick up our internet pre-purchased tickets made the whole experience TERRRIBLE. There is no excuse for not haveing the tickets available on the first tour bus you hop-on
