We had an excellent tour of Xativa with Pablo, our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the site and the area, and he set a good pace for the tour for the 14 of us traveling together. He was very friendly and attentive and answered all our questions, including from the younger kids on the trip. Our bus driver was friendly and always on time. I emailed with Maya prior to the trip and she answered all my questions and ensured that we were ready for our tour.

a perfectly organized tour, super interesting and very nice guides and drivers. The explanation about nature and fauna was very instructive and engaging. All in all a wonderful experience. Thank you very much

A very pleasant trip with a very good paella and as a finishing touch to be able to immerse yourself in the truly spectacular transparent Mediterranean waters. We enjoyed it very much
