Experience Valencia with the whole family in four hours with a private guide, private vehicle or bikes and walking combined. All our family tours include an horchata sweet drink and traditional pastry for the whole family and a go at walking on water in the floating balls at Valencia´s fabulous City of Arts and Sciences. Of course, you and your family will also take away some of the most memorable points of Valencian and Spanish history with some quiz quesitons you are all bound to get an A+ on.
Families are an essential part of Spanish life, and traveling with kids has never been easier than taking one of our private family tours, crafted especially for parents, grandparents, teens, and children of all ages with the best private guides experienced in working with children. Even better, your Valencia family vacation is completely customizable. We make sure we’re checking off something on everyone’s bucket list to give you a trip to remember forever.
Of course, your private family tour of Valencia most certainly includes the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, where Disney’s Tomorrowland starring George Clooney was filmed. While you’re there, cruise around the gigantic reflecting ponds in a pedal boat or paddleboard, or try your hand at walking on water in a giant, inflatable plastic hamster ball developed by NASA! All our family tours include a go at walking on water in the floating balls for children of appropriate age.*
The City of Arts and Sciences is also home to Valencia’s science museum and the Oceanografic, Europe’s largest aquarium complete with a 115-foot (35 meter) shark tunnel and ten different animal habitats from all over the world. There is even an IMAX theater that plays shows in all different languages. Entrance lines can be long, so let us arrange the ticket purchase for you!
In the city center, your private guide can show you and your family how the ancient Romans lived their lives, visiting sites like the Roman baths and the underground archeological museum. For families that love a good ghost story, your guide can take you to an ancient chopping block where convicted criminals parted ways with their heads!
Parents and grandparents getting tired? Have a seat at one of our many cafes to sip on a coffee or sangria while your guide takes the kiddos on a custom made scavenger hunt or up the 207 steps to the top of the Micalet tower or we can all have an ice cream! For our adventurous families, we would be delighted to organize private bike or even Segway tours for you to discover Valencia with kids!
Remember in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels when Gulliver is tied up and climbed on by all the little people? Valencia’s riverbed Turia park is home to an enormous rendition of this classic literary scene, perfect for the little ones and even teens in your family to scamper all over while you sit in the shade and enjoy the park.
Our Highlights for Families tour is totally customizable for your entire family. Tell us a little bit about you and yours, and let us plan your perfect private Valencia family vacation!

Duration: 4 hours
Meeting Point: Train Station, Bus Station, Port, Hotel, or Destination of Your Choice
This tour includes our private transport as listed below and the price we quote you will include that.
We would also be delighted to pick you up or drop you off outside of the city center or at the airport for a small fee.
***For Port Pick Ups Only: Your private guide will meet you at the ‘Acciona Transmediterranea terminal’ at the cruise ship port, where your ship might be docking anyway. If you dock elsewhere, you will be at a pier a bit further away with restricted access for vehicles and private pick-ups. In this case, the port authorities will provide a shuttle bus, free of charge, that takes about 5 minutes to get to the Acciona Transmediterranea Terminal, which is the only place private pick-ups are allowed. Your guide will be waiting for you at the terminal with a sign in your name.
IMPORTANT NOTE (for groups of 6): In my larger touring car, the middle two seats are spacious and comfortable, and the back seat is a three-person bench seat that might be a tight squeeze for some. Before I can confirm a booking for six people with this vehicle, I will need confirmation that you understand this arrangement before I accept the booking. If you prefer, I would be happy to arrange a private coach and driver in addition to your guide. Please let me know that this is your preference when you submit your pre-booking form.
