What will you find?

Meet your guide in central Valencia, and after listening to a quick safety briefing, put on your helmet, hop on your bike and set off on your way. Following your guide, pedal toward Turia Gardens – a lush stretch of parkland that’s actually the former riverbed of Turia River. Once snaking right through Valencia, the river flooded in the 1950s, prompting the council to redirect it around the city instead.

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.

  1. 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!
  2. This was a fun but short tour. We meet up with the tour guide which from the port was not clear how to get there. After a bit of a language barrier trying to find out about busses we took a cab over to the bike rental shop and met a very pleasant guide named Jose. He was funny and knowledgable and a great guide. He was very tight with the schedule and we had no free time. the day was sunny and thetour was great.
  3. We requested for the tour to be in Dutch seeing that my mother's primary language is Dutch and she was looking forward to listen to some of the historical explanations. When we arrived, there was no reservation for us and the Dutch tour group was full so we were placed in a German/English tour group. Once on our way I think they found our reservation and realized that we had tapas included in the tour. Thus, during the first part of the tour the route of everyone had to be changed due to this. We had a nice and knowledgeable guide, but she was racing pretty much ahead of the group at times, leaving people behind who couldn't always see on coming traffic from small side streets. With experienced bikers this is not as much of a problem than with those who never use a bike. Then the tapas was a sad display. Placed on the table ahead of us - taken our seats a bit later. Tapas included a piece of egg, a few slices of dried up salami (iberico) and 2 hard pieces of manchego (?) cheese. We also had a small glass of beer. We skipped several sites including the municipality square and the royal gardens. When I addressed this issue, the tour guide stated that this is never included and that it wasn't on the site. Well it is on the itinerary online, so maybe time to update the site if they have never toured there. I guess, overall the tour was okay, but certainly not worth $85 for two people. We rented bikes from the same company: ValenciaBikes, which was a far better deal $13 per bike for 24 hours.
