We had a fantastic tour with Dani our Spanish guide. Only myself and my husband had made a booking on the day we went - we ended up having a personal guide who was so friendly and fun. Our day started off at Xativa castle which truly breathtaking, perched on top of a high ridge, driving up the hair pin bends you arrive at this magestic fortress in the skies. We explored this site ourselves with map provided in english. We had some spare time so we were shown a bonus site where we managed to see some epic waterfalls and a beautiful blue lagoon in Anna. At lunch. as my husband is a vegetarian, Dani recommended a great little authentic spanish restaurant that served veggie paella (which he booked ahead for us - not included in price) and they also had the most sublime cheesecakes! we also ate wild Valencian oranges straight from the wild which was cool! The museum in Ontinyent was half closed when we got there but we used this time to explore the old town which was stunning.

A fantastic experience. I would highly recommend. We went up towards the cross. Amazing views. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He was very thorough explaining how the segways work and the safety elements. Reasonably priced too.

Out plaine was a bit early, so the taxi was not arrived, er har to wait, but er har the phone number to the compani, so it alt well.

Fantastic place fantastic show staff were friendly and helpful

Very beautiful show. We were happy to visit this show.
