What you'll do

Dive into history to discover why Valencia is blessed with abundance since antiquity. While marching through the city and its colourful details you´ll disclose how Valencia flourished to be the bread basket of Spain.

Your hosts

I run an innovative excursion company in Valencia called The Touring Bus. I organize fun-filled excursions, for people looking to connect with locals, our culture and history. I have been living in Valencia for more than three decades and deeply love this city and region! Amir and Adela, as co-hosts, official guides and local experts, leads guests on experiences. Amir studied Art History, Adela, Spanish Philology, and myself, Economics at the University of Valencia. We are passionate about history and local culture which has driven us to investigate for hidden stories, gems and special places. We enjoy creating routes which take you off the beaten path. These excursions takes you to two unique and breathtaking places that share a common history. By connecting two sceneries we create an original route that is one of a kind.
