I’m a person with lots of different interests, but what I love most is to travel and eat delicious food. So I made of my passion, my job! I have been a tour manager for almoust 10 years and I have travelled to more than 50 countries around the world. In summer 2018 I have started my own business called: INDULGE SPAIN. When I speak of travelling I mean not only discovering new places and seeing the beauty of the landscapes and architecture but also immersing myself in great local foods traditions and culture. What is culture without food? Which better way than following a passionate local foddie to have an authentic experience in Valencia ? Come for a visit!

If you are a foodie and/or if you want to learn more about the city you’re staying, this tour is definitely for you! We felt so welcomed by Vivi during the tour, learned a lot (and it’s not my first time in Valencia!) and had a pleasure to meet locals business owners who are really passionate about their businesses and the best part of it- you can taste their passion! 😊. Vivi is a perfect guide, who loves what she is doing and who really cares. Her English is amazing and it’s really a bless to have her to translate or to explain as it you need it sometimes 😊 All in all it is an outstanding experience when you can feel the culture and even taste it! Well done, Vivi, and highly recommended! 👍👍

Vivi was super friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome. She knows her topics and the tour had the right balance between culture, food and fun. I would definitely recommend this to other people because even though you might go to some of the places on your own, Vivi adds that extra bit of special and gives you really good recommendations along the way!

Vivi was fantastic! We connected right away, and had such a great time chatting that we didn’t take a single picture—we were so busy eating and enjoying! In between meals, we’d stop and hear bits of history about the city that we didn’t know. Vivi was so friendly, and chatted with everyone, and it made for a really welcoming feeling to the city. At the end of the tour, Vivi gave us a guide to her favorite bars and restaurants in the city that we definitely plan to use. Book this tour, you won’t regret it!

Vivi is fantastic! This was my second tour with Vivi but it didn't feel like a tour as it was an EXPERIENCE! She knows her food! :-) If you have even just one day in Valencia, I would recommend this!!!! It's awesome to feel like you get to know local favorite spots and get out of the touristy vibe. Vivi has wonderful energy and such passion, you will be welcome and feel like you have known Vivi forever! The food and locations are great and she has great relationships with all the locations we visited. Highly recommend!
