Traveler Tips


Recommend not to do this during the cold seasons as the highlight is to enjoy the rooftop in open air setting.
This an excellent tour with an amazing view of the city, in daylight and then at night.

Wonderful tapas, wine and rooftop view
zjxbg5tnts, May 2022
This experience deserves more than 5 stars. 5 of us ladies are traveling together and so far this was the best. We did a short tour of the Science Center learning about the amazing architecture. Then the best part began. The food and wine was fabulous. Mimi’s explanation of the tapas and wine was excellent. The view at the rooftop was spectacular. I highly recommend this experience, well worth the price.
Fabulous evening
Carole_M, May 2022
Fabulous evening, so glad we booked this. Mimi was a great guide and host. Food and drink delicious and we particularly appreciated the catering for my daughter who is vegan and has a nut allergy.
Highly recommended value
Billy_D, May 2022
10/10 would recommend this tour. The walk around the grounds along with the commentary from Mimi was great to begin with and it just got better at the tapas and tasting. From 33 floors up, you will take in spectacular views. We had five different wines, 10 courses of great food, a great hostess, and great company.
Wine, Tapas and sightseeing
Richard_E, Apr 2022
This was an illuminating trip and wine tasting/meal and we all enjoyed the whole time. However it is 25% sightseeing and 75% food and drink - just think the description should be altered to reflect this.
All good
James_C, Apr 2022
All good. Excellent guide, top notch chef, wonderful group of people in the tour. Would recommend highly.
Short tour and tapas
Shelby, Mar 2022
This tour was great for what it was - the views from the rooftop balcony were phenomenal!! However, was underwhelmed by the tour portion of the experience - the area is pretty new, and there isn't tons of information that you can't learn on Google. If you're going to take one of these tours, do the one in the historical city center instead, it had the same menu and a MUCH more interesting tour!
Fun and Amazing Time for solo traveler
Lisa_W, Mar 2022
I was traveling alone but wanted to learn a little history and try some new foods and wine while I get settled into the new city. This tour was the perfect most amazing tour. Our group was small, just two of us, but I had the best time. Belen was an amazing guide. She answered all of our questions, was friendly, and served some amazing wines and food. The view is at sunset is like nothing you have ever seen before. I had great conversation even with such a small group and the ride back home without having to walk was much appreciated. I absolutely recommend this tour and Belen. It was such a fun way to start your exploration of Valencia!
A wonderful Valencia experience!

If you enjoy Spanish tapas, wine and great company, then this will be perfect for you while in Valencia!
Short tour of City of Arts & Sciences followed by wine and tapas
Janine_M, Jan 2022
Views from the terrace. Interesting wines we tasted with very good descriptions by the tour leader. Opportunity to discuss wines from Valencia. Enjoyed the tapas accompanying the wines. Appreciated that they accommodated different dietary restrictions.

Fun, scenic, delicious, and informative! Great use of your time in Valencia!
jordancmahoney, Jan 2022
This was my favorite day of my whole trip to Spain! The tour guide was super fun and we had an absolute blast. I was grateful to have someone explain about the City of Arts and Sciences because honestly, while I can appreciate that it looks cool, I didn't know anything else about it. My guide was knowledgeable about the different buildings and the adjoining park. She also took us to great spots for photos - they turned out to be the best pictures from my whole trip, too! And the FOOD! Oh my gosh. We had SUCH a blast during our rooftop tasting! 10 courses indeed! And cava and wine and music - and that VIEW! 10/10 would recommend. I had a blast and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Nice experience, learnt new things

Margaret_D, Sep 2021
Matias was a terrific guide around the Foundation and then looked after us very well at a superb lunch. We were with one other couple which worked perfectly, in the most stunning rooftop location. Food and wine choices were excellent.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you so much for your kind review, Margaret! We absolutely loved hosting you and sharing an unforgettable morning together!
Spectacular rooftop wine and tapas tasting with incredible views and new friends
Nancy_Z, Sep 2021
Our guide Bogi was an absolute delight. The wine was fantastic and the food delish. We made new friends in our small group as we bonded in a sumptuous rooftop ambiance. Really fun way to end a great visit to Valencia!
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you so much for your kind review, Nancy! We loved hosting you and sharing the evening together!
Great tour, food and wines!
carnisha_v, Aug 2021
We were Alba’s first group. She did a really great job. She told us everything about the City of the Arts and Sciences. The tapas was delicious and the wines were really good! Thank you Alba and also for the Barcelona recommendations you gave me!
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you so much Carnisha! We are really glad that you enjoyed the experience and the tapas and wines. We hope you had fun in Barcelona and hope to see you back in Valencia very soon!
Great tour with a meal worth well more than admission
Heather_C, Aug 2021
This tour was fantastic! Bogi was a wonderful guide. We spent about an hour, maybe an hour and a half, walking about City of Arts & Sciences while she gave us some history and interesting facts of the complex before we walked to a nearby apartment building for our lunch. That lunch alone was worth more than the price of the tour. Our group was very small (only 4 of us - my friend and I and then a couple), but we had an amazing time chatting, looking out over Valencia, working our way through several delicious small courses, and drinking the accompanying wine. Bogi and our other hostess called us a cab to the train station at the end, and even our cab driver added to our experience (pointing us to a great nearby bar, COMIC cafe, so that we could try out the infamous Agua de Valencia that the couple in our tour group had raved about). Highly recommend!
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you so much, Heather! We are so glad to hear that you had a great time with the others on the tour and that you enjoyed the lunch and the wines so much! Thank you for spending the day with us - see you again in the future!
Amazing tour and food!
Grace_R, Aug 2021
My tour guide, Sofía, was amazing! She took me around L'Oceanográfic, taught me all about the wonderful architecture, and even helped me practice my Spanish. Then she took me to the rooftop of a beautiful building and had me sample a plethora of delicious, beautifully-presented Valencian tapas. It was an amazing experience, especially because I was traveling alone; I was taught so much and felt like a made a new friend!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you so much Grace!! It was so much fun sharing the morning with you and having the opportunity to host you on the City of Arts and Sciences tour! We are so glad that you enjoyed the experience and discovered new things!

Great and passionate tour.
Anthony_I, Jul 2021
Lara was extraordinary. Very knowledgeable, charming and delighted to show us around. Her passion showed throughout the tour. The tapas and rooftop location were out of this world. We highly recommend this tour especially with Lara.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening, Anthony! It was such a pleasure to meet you both and to share the evening together. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip to Valencia. Un abrazo a Alemania!
What an extraordinary night !
LiMei_N, Jul 2021
Sofia is super professional and knowledgeable, and I had the best homemade tapas ever on top 33 floor to see the best view of Valencia!
