Highlights for Families Shore Tour

The perfect shore excursion for children, teens, parents, and grandparents! 


Valencia is a wonderfully multi-generational city with parks, playgrounds, universities, and family-friendly museums scattered all over. In Spain, social life is family life, so you’ll often see families of all ages out together, eating, walking, and playing.

During Highlights for Families Shore Tour, specifically designed with families in mind, we will take you to our favorite family-friendly parks, museums, and sites. This tour is completely customizable for you and your travel companions, from the youngest to the oldest, and your itinerary with cater to your exact specifications.

Your private, local guide will pick you up when you arrive at the port directly from your ship. No family tour would be complete without a visit to the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, where Disney’s movie Tomorrowland starring George Clooney was filmed. Here, you’ll have the option to take a boat out onto the reflecting pools or try to “walk on water” inside giant, inflated plastic balls designed by NASA.

The City of Arts and Sciences is also home to Valencia’s science museum and the Oceanogràfic, Europe’s largest aquarium, where you can explore the shark tunnel, catch a dolphin show, or even watch an hour-long IMAX show in any language.

At Valencia Private Tours, we believe that learning about history should be fun, especially when we can see it right in front of us! We can take you through the Roman baths to discover how the Romans lived their daily lives, to several historic buildings to learn how architecture can make you a detective, or even to an old chopping block where men lost their heads!

Valencia is an incredibly safe city, and (depending on the ages of the children) we can organize different “scavenger hunts” for the kids to do while the parents and guardians take a break and sip on a sangria or coffee in a local café.

We also have the great Gulliver Park, a park based on the classic story Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift. In the middle of this park, there is a giant structure of Gulliver that kids of all ages can climb around and slide down.

Parts of our city and parks can be seen by regular bikes, four-person bikes, or even Segways. We highly recommend these options, as they add adventure to your private tour!

*Please note that this tour includes 1 – 2 hours of walking. Please let us know if you have mobility issues, and we would be happy to customize your tour to fit your needs.
