The meeting place was easy to find and Ana was a few minutes early. She whisked us away in her comfortable minivan for a day comparing and contrasting Cartagena and Murcia.Ana is warm and knowledgeable and packed a lot into our day. Best might have been the interpretive centre for the ruins of Cartagena and the walk through the pedestrian part of Murcia. Ana's English is clean and rich; she lived awhile in York in the UK. I was in a wheelchair rehabbing a broken leg, and it was obvious that Ana knew how to adapt the tour for people with mobility issues. She made sure the places she chose wer accessible and it was one of our best shore excursions on the whole cruise. Highly recommended.

My husband and I met Sonja for our private tour of Valencia and it was the best time! Sonja took us to the beach, old and new Valencia, to a food market that was a great experience and after walking through town to her favorite place to eat for true Valencia Paella. I will never forget this tour.

We had a great expereince with this tour and it is a good alternative to the more expensive cruise excursions. Our guide was very knowledgable and we visted multiple sites with extensive walking, although not that difficult. A wine and tapas tasting was also included. There was a large Roman excavation that we visited which was one of the largest in Spain, and you could walk thru most it.
