What to expect

Two of the Costa Blanca's most photogenic inland spots are the star turns of this tour. You'll visit the fairytale village of Guadalest and the serene Algar waterfalls. Expect amazing scenery and a dramatic drive as you twist and turn along narrow mountain roads. Sofia, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Even though there isn't much left standing of the castle in Guadalest, it's well worth visiting because it has the best views. You'll get fabulous photos of the bell tower that tops the ridge, the smooth, carpet-like reservoir in the valley and the mountains tumbling down to the coast. You can even see the sea.'

First up is Guadalest. The jewel in the crown of the Costa Blanca interior clings to a rocky outcrop amid some of the most romantic scenery imaginable. Wander the village's dozen or so streets, which are home to eight museums, and pass through tunnels carved into the rock. As you weave up the cobbled lanes towards the top of the ridge, the views over the valley just get better and better.

Then it's on to one of the natural wonders of the Costa Blanca – the Algar waterfalls. With pebble beaches, deep blue pools, mossy channels and thundering cascades, it's like a natural waterpark. Stroll along the trail to the sparkling clear pools of the River Algar and admire some of Mother Nature's finest work. Sofia says, ‘The water here is beautiful, clean and refreshingly cold even in the height of summer, because it flows directly from sources high in the mountains.'

Valencia Panoramic Tour with Guided Walk

Valencia isn't just culture – it's also an enticing place to dine out and hit the shops. On this full day tour, you'll have the chance to see the sights on a panoramic bus ride, then get the lowdown on a guided walking tour of the heart of the city. Martí, one of our local guides, says, ‘Valencia has really come out of the shadows in recent decades, and now stands shoulder to shoulder with Barcelona and Madrid in terms of art, culture and cuisine. Our old town, one of the largest in Europe, is packed with sights, with the Silk Exchange shining brightest of all.' You'll start off with a panoramic bus tour for an overview of the city and an explanation of some of the major sights. Once you leave the bus, you'll set off on a guided walking tour around the city. Your expert local guide will show you around, sharing local insight into the history and explaining some of the highlights. When the tour is over, you'll have free time to explore further, grab a bite to eat or browse the shops.The streets around Calle Colon, a modern boulevard, boast all kinds of stores – from global high street brands to luxury goods shops as well as the latest in technology. There are also smaller, original boutiques selling haute couture clothing. Martí adds, ‘If all that shopping tires you out, pop over to the art nouveau Colon Market. It's evolved into an epicurean food hall and is a go-to, not just for the nibbles but for the design of the building itself. It's a good spot to take a break at one of the cafés.'
