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!

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!

Excellent and very personal tour of great food and wine in central Valencia. Vivi is very knowledgeable about both, and passionate about showcasing small family run businesses that really care about their food and their customers. She is vivacious, talented, warm and friendly and a great person to spend a few hours with. We explored markets and shops and as well as saw some sights on the streets. We ate marvelous things super well cooked such as freshly grilled sardines, artichoke hearts from a tiny cafe/bar run by a Michelin starred chef, and delicate croquettes bursting with flavour served with a boutique Vermouth. We left feeling like friends and wishing we had done the tour on our first day. Vivi gave us a comprehensive list of suggestions for places to eat and drink to take away with us - we tried many of these on our last day and they were all top recommendations. Highly recommended.

What a great tour! Considering the fantastic food that Vivi selected for us, this was really good value. And we went to places we would never have found by ourselves - one of Vivi's contacts even opened up his bar specially for us even though it's usually closed until the evening. Vivi is a true professional, and we were very satisfied by the end of our tour - by the food and drink, by Vivi's insights into local cuisine and history, and by the ache in our legs from our exploration of the historical area between the cathedral and the market. Thoroughly recommended!
