Meet your guide at your Valencia hotel and soak up the scenery on the 25-minute journey to Huerto de Consuelin, a cooking school located in a country house in Sueca. Hear how Sueca is the home of traditional Valencian paella as you drive through the rice paddies and orange orchards, then head inside to begin your authentic Paella Cooking Class.
Under the guidance of an expert chef, learn the secrets of the perfect Valencian paella, which traditionally uses chicken and rabbit, along with rice and vegetables. Then, get hands-on as you help chop up the ingredients, prepare the meat and season the paella. Pause for a drink and sample some of the local orchard fruits as you wait for the paella to cook, then help prepare the rest of your feast, including a typical Valencian salad.
Finally, it’s time for the best bit! Sit down to enjoy your 2-course meal of homemade paella, followed by a scrumptious dessert of homemade cake and a traditional after-dinner liqueur. Before you leave, receive your personalized ‘Ambassador of Paella’ certificate and recipe booklet to take home with you.
With your appetite sated, continue to the Albufera National Park for the second half of your tour and experience the wild beauty of Valencia for yourself. Gaze out over Albufera lake from Montañeta dels Sants, stroll through the shady pine forest of Dehesa of the Saler and enjoy a glimpse of local life on the fishing island of El Palmar, famously the inspiration of Valencian novelist Vicente Blasco Ibañez.
After an action-packed full-day adventure, journey back to Valencia and end your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

This experience was simply great fun. Rafa and Maria were really nice and made the experience terrific. It was immediately like having a fun family in Spain. Learning about authentic Paella was interesting. Having a part in the preparation will never be forgotten. I was hesitant to book a cooking class, but I was so happy we did. Just do it. You will not regret it!!!!

The best tour we took in Spain! We loved our two guides/chefs and the Paella dinner was amazing. They even gave us the recipe to make at home. Highly recommend. This was a highlight of our time in Spain!

This was a great tour. We were picked up at our hotel in downtown Valencia and we drove out to the farm area where the orange groves and rice fields were. We arrived at a beautiful quaint house where we were greeted by Rafa, who taught the class of making paella. He is so friendly and we felt so at home being there. Learning how to cook the paella was an experience. We never knew the real ingredients and the way to cook authentic Valencian paella. It was delicious. Our tour guide Victoria translated every step and we learned of the lifestyle of the Valencians. Then we took a ride through the rice fields where they were harvesting the bomba rice, saw how the process was done. Highly recommend the tour, we had a very enjoyable day spending time in the countryside and savoring the paella.
