What Our Clients Are Saying ...

Malka Borrego

Kate's tour was amazing!. She is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She was responsive to our interests and designed a private tour to meet our family needs. We have a toddler and pre-teen and she was responsive to our needs as we navigated the day. She knew how to connect with everyone in the family. She made history fun for the kids and adults. It was great to have someone design a day of learning and fun while you get to enjoy your family. I could not recommend Kate more! We will be back and ask Kate to design another tour for us!


My husband, two adult children (25 & 22) and I spent a day biking and sightseeing around Valencia with Kate Redding. This was a highlight of our vacation. Kate is so knowledgeable, insightful, gregarious, accommodating and fun! She did all the planning for us which allowed for a relaxing and enjoyable day in and around Valencia! She lives in Valencia and her tour was one off the beaten path. We loved seeing the city and surrounding coast like a native Vallencian! I highly recommend Kate and her travel and guide services.

Sarah-Kate (Katie) was wonderful! She spoke perfect English, had a delightful, bubbly personality and made us fall in love with Valencia! She even tried to find a restaurant which would serve us Valencian paella but it was not open due to holiday. We tasted Iberian ham in the marketplace (not to be missed), went to the Coves of Sant Joseph, and Sagunto to see the ruins. She brought the ruins to life, telling us its importance in the Punic wars. We loved spending the day with her! She is a gem!

Lourdes Dieguez

Valencia Private tours was an absolute pleasure. Very informative and comfortable. Our tour guide Sonia was "super" very accomodating and full of good energy. Kate the owner is very responsible and attentive always answering my emails.(and there were many). I recomend this tour to anyone interest in having a fun and interesting time in BEAUTIFUL VALENCIA!!!

Kelly D.

Our family had a wonderful time exploring Xativa including its castle and town with Kate, the owner and guide. Kate is extremely knowledgeable and was able to delight us with information on architecture, history and culture. And the views from the top of the castle are spectacular. This is a little gem within a hour's ride from Valencia.

Hallie Preskill

Sarah-Kate is amazing! We set up the private tour to show us the city and different neighborhoods, since we are planning to move to Valencia in 2020. While we drove around the city, she pointed historical landmarks, provided insights into life in various neighborhoods, took us to the City of Arts and Sciences, and stopped at the beach for a snack. We loved every minute of our time with Kate, and were so inspired by her, that we plan to see her again on another tour.

Rohit Kotha

Kate was such an amazing tour guide and, in all honesty, the best tour guide I’ve ever had. We had a large group when we went to Spain and Portugal but she made time to get to know each and every one of us. During the entire trip, even when we faced problems or time crunches, she always had a good attitude and made the trip 100 times better.

Gil W.

I am so glad that we did some searching on TripAdvisor to find a Private Guide for our day in Valencia. That led us to Valencia Private Tours, and its owner Sarah-Kate Redding. After our email and WhatsApp correspondence, I felt very good about what to expect on the tour she had planned for us. Unfortunately, Kate was already booked, so she told us someone else would be our guide. That made us a tad nervous, because one time we had a “substitute guide, and he was AWFUL. Kate assigned Sonia to be our guide. How wonderful! It was like spending a day with a good friend! We’ve traveled a lot and have gone on many tours. Sonia was definitely the best guide we've have ever had. Not only knowledgeable (We learned so much), but friendly, charming and “in tune” with us. We spent 10 hours with her, and we easily could have spent more time. There really is not much more to say about her, and about this company. First Class all the way.

Linda Scroggins

Kate did a fantastic job guiding us through Valencia. We saw far more than I expected including rice paddies, cathedral, market, silk exchange and the science center. She was fun, knowledgeable and very flexible to meet our needs. She knew how to get us around in my unexpected need for a wheelchair. At the end of our tour, she made lunch reservations for us and we pre/ordered our paella which was ready for us and fantastic. I'd highly recommend Kate if you're going to Valencia.

House of Divers Tyler and Erika

Only pick Kate! Kate was and is one of my favorite parts of Spain! She had amazing stories and was very informative! Her personality made the day. She is the type of person who brightens up a room. The tour was perfectly curated and each detail was enjoyable. She picked us up and dropped us off. We did so much in a short time because she is so organized! If I had time to hire her for more days and/or take a cooking course with her husband I would have done it in a heartbeat just to spend more time with her. She is precious - book her!

Alexandra E.

I was looking for a half day bike ride for my mother, my sister and myself in german language. I booked the tour via Kate. The advice of Kate was great. She organised a tour with Luis. Luis speaks fluent German and the tour with him was excellent. He told us many details regarding the different places in Valencia. Absolutely recommend. We really enjoyed the event. Furthermore Luis send us great recommendations for restaurants via WhatsApp. He is a perfect tour guide! You immediately realize that he is doing what he loves. Muchas Gracias, Luis!

Lance Lim

A great, fun day with Kate! She called the day prior to make sure of our plans/meeting point. She is a ball of fun energy. Very informative and very considerate of my mom-in-law's bad knees. We had lunch at a very authentic paella place (with mainly Valencianos eating) and she made sure we had what we wanted. Overall, a wonderful day with a wonderful guide! 2 thumbs up!!
