So knowledgeable!

Carlos led a fantastic tour for my family, he was patient with our pace while keeping us on time to the Thurs ceremony. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about Valencia history and encouraged questions. He gave us great recommendations for follow up activities too!

Hello Heidi, Thank you very much for letting us your comment. Carlos is a guide who is gaining more and more experience when it comes to transmitting all his knowledge of history, heritage and culture in all of his guided tours. We hope to see you soon here again!

The history and architecture of buildings and locations such as the Mercado and the Hall of Columns.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hello, Thank you very much for the comment. Exactly, in Valencia we have a lot of history, many world heritage sites (material or immaterial) and a lot of culture to make known to all our visitors. And our guides always know how to give their best to teach them on our guided tours. We hope to see you again soon to show you another part of our cultural richness.

The tour was great and Miriamnour tour guide was excellent! Extremely Knowledgeable and fully bilingual and supe accommodating with the group. A gorgeous city with tons of history and having someone who knows it and shares made the tour a great one to remember. I highly recommend it!

Disappointing intro to very interesting historical city
Karishma_M
, Apr 2022
We had two guides on our English tour, the second was a trainee. Unfortunately, our primary guide, Theresa, could barely speak English and our all-English tour group really struggled to understand her. Also, she seemed to miss out key details, which the trainee, Carlos, who spoke much better English, filled in for us. He was very helpful, but every time Theresa saw him speaking with us following a question we'd ask him, she would interrupt. Very annoying.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hello Karish. Thank you for your review. We apologize for the experience. Teresa is a guide with a long experience in this work and has a lot of knowledge. We hope that she can continue to gain experience and language level to be able to offer a better service, according to the quality of our services. Best regards.

Great Guide, Poor Performance
Ali_S
, Sep 2021
The guide was fantastic but the trip was terrible. The guide had to give the entire trip in English and Spanish. We all stood there forever having to listen to both. And when you have a Spanish couple that asks questions every 30 seconds, it leaves us English speakers standing there wasting time. Most of us were irritated.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Hello, We are sorry to hear this comment about the visit. In the information before booking, it is indicated that the visits will always be carried out in Spanish and English at the same time. And our guide has the experience of doing this tour in both languages at the same time for many years. Sometimes it can turn out that there are clients who ask a lot and the guide cannot leave their doubts unanswered. We hope that you have not left Valencia without enjoying the experience of knowing its history thanks to the guide.

Fantastic tour, expert guide
Nicola_C

The tour was fantastic! I was the only one booked one and was worried it might be a little awkward but Anaïs was so friendly and relaxed, talking with me whilst also going through the points of the tour. I was seriously impressed by her knowledge too - her expertise meant that she could answer every question I had, at a very specific level. I definitely got the impression she was not only a tour guide, but a true historian. We visited some really interesting places and I never grew bored. I'd definitely recommend booking this tour when you come to Valencia as walking round the city afterwards is enhanced by the extra context you now have. I'll probably take this tour again if I come back!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2020
Hi! Thank you very much for the assessment. We are glad to know that you enjoyed the visit. Anaïs is a great guide who has a lot of knowledge of history and art and knows how to make your visits more interesting. We hope to see you soon again in Valencia.

excellent walking tour
SalvatoreG_V

I had this walking tour last week. Anais was an excellent guide and she even adapted the tour to allow the group to see a special event that was going on that day: the "Tribunal de las aguas". If you want to discover the city center of Valencia with a very knowledgeable guide, I highly recommend this tour!

The only issue was we scheduled the spanish version and they joined english and spanish together so we had to wait for the explanation in the other language instead lf learning more in the booked language

Excellent Tour of Historical Valencia
Rachel B
, Oct 2019
Our tour guide, Anais, was great, really friendly and very knowledgeable. She gave us a great insight into the history of the city, together with general knowledge about the area and it's customs. Having a single language and a small group allowed us to hear all the commentary and have time for lots of questions. Really glad we booked this!

Estuvo bien en general pero no nos gustó que mezclasen la ruta inglés español. Amigos que hicieron la ruta free la semana anterior vieron más cosas.Nosotros perdíamos tiempo al esperar que lo explicase en inglés.A estas personas les pasaría igual con nosotros.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2019
Hola. Muchas gracias por dejarnos vuestra valoración. En Turiart tenemos muy en cuenta todas las opiniones, siempre con el objetivo de seguir mejorando en nuestros servicios. Efectivamente, la ruta "Valencia Esencial" puede ser bilingüe (español-inglés) pero no por ello se ven menos cosas que cuando tenemos clientes en un sólo idioma. Seguimos trabajando para que la próxima vez tengamos una puntuación de 5 estrellas :)
