Valencia Private Tours.

See & Do

24th Jun 2020

Here at Sea Saffron we know that when visiting a city, there is a “checklist” of experiences. When coming to Valencia, there are some spots that you cannot miss. However, we also know that the cookie-cutter large group tour wearing headphones is not everybody’s style. This is why we have curated private tours and small group tours to discover Valencia.

Sea Saffron's Philosophy is to experience the must-sees in a more intimate setting. We share the sights and the stories of our culture. We blend this with a unique dining experience in an emblematic venue of the city. Our Guided Tours of Valencia and Food Tours Valencia Spain are the top-rated on TripAdvisor and have won awards for Spain and Portugal.

The Sights

Valencia is an undeniably beautiful city with plenty to see. There are two key areas: Valencia’s Old Town and the City of Arts and Sciences. Sea Saffron has an intimate tour focusing on each in which your knowledgeable host shares the stories behind the landmarks. With about one hour of leisurely walking in each, discover the best of Valencia.

Valencia Old Town

Valencia Old Town is steeped in history with beautiful architecture dating back to 711BC. Within the narrow streets, you can find remnants of Moorish, Baroque, Romanesque and Gothic architecture. The key sights here are the Mercado Central, Plaza de la Reina, Plaza de la Virgen and our personal favourite, the Church of San Nicolas. This hidden gem is known as the Sistine Chapel of Valencia thanks to the stunning frescoes adorning its ceilings. Take a Valencia Old Town Walking Tour with your passionate Sea Saffron host. 

City of Arts and Sciences

This futuristic complex is the brainchild of world-famous architect Santiago Calatrava. This Valencian-born genius masterminded a 7-structure complex. Now, this complex is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. Built entirely in white and blue, stepping into the City of Arts and Sciences is like stepping into a sci-fi movie. In fact, many sci-fi movies have been filmed here! Discover the secrets of the architecture on this Valencia City Tour.

Our Menus

After exploring the landmarks, we invite you to discover the flavours of Valencia. Our goal is to support local providers and shine a spotlight on the Valencian region. That is why we change our menus seasonally and focus on key ingredients of the area. We pair our menus with prizewinning regional wines. Our 10-course menus are based around our most important ingredients. We can also cater for any dietary restrictions.

"This was a lovely evening; a professional group achieving a professional experience, sharing knowledge and passion. The tour of sites in El Carmen was unique including places we would not have gone. The location for excellent tapas and drinks was stunning and private. Lara was an incredible host, and her follow-up advice after we left Valencia was so spot on." - David, Virgin Islands
