    doing a bike tour is a fantastic way to see the city - you can cover way more ground vs. walking and more personal with a guide vs. jumping on & off a city bus. there is no way we would have gotten to see as much of the city as we did in about 3 hours. and our guide adelina was terrific - she stopped at all the city highlights and provided great background about the sites. and no e-bike needed as the route is nice & flat.

I loved it. Good training before we started. A little scary on the big ramps, especially going down. Cello was great - good teacher and good information. She really needs a better camera. The pictures are so tiny (KB’a Not MB’s) that they are not clear and cannot be cropped or edited to make them presentable. She took great scenes but we are really glad we went back to the City of Arts and Sciences to take our own pictures. (You just can’t do it as a beginner on a Segway and it is illegal to do it while on the Segway. )

Reasonably priced for such a big attraction. Every tank has wonderful creatures, fish or crustaceans. Really well cared for clean and spacious aquariums. An absolute must visit for anyone at any age. We spent all day sitting and watching the wonderful fish and even went back to see them again.

Very informative and guide enthusiastic and pleasant. Only down side was 3 hours on a bicycle without a coffee break which could easily be factored in.

This was an amazing trip! The food was fantastic and the science center was impeccable. I loved this! Please book this! Our guide Belen was amazing.

Super guide (Nini if I can remember) very knowledgeable, patient and easy to understand. Nothing was rushed. Well done
