We had a pleasant guide who made the tour interesting. Good introduction to the city. The only downside is that the tour could take longer, it would be interesting to have the option to enter at some buildings. We could keep the bicycles for the rest of the day without any problems or pay extra, including lock.
A beautiful experience: Valencia is the ideal city to get around by bike: full of cycle paths and all in painura. Our guide Alessandra is very good and very well prepared and the Bianchi bicycles are very momode. I highly recommend
