Overview

Families are an essential part of Spanish life, and traveling with kids has never been easier than taking one of our private family tours, crafted especially for parents, grandparents, teens, and children of all ages. Even better, your Valencia family vacation is completely customizable. Let’s make sure we’re checking something off of everyone’s bucket list and giving you a trip to remember forever.

Of course, your private family tour of Valencia most certainly includes the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, where Disney’s Tomorrowland starring George Clooney was filmed. While you’re there, cruise around the gigantic reflecting ponds in a pedal boat or paddleboard, or try your hand at walking on water in a giant, inflatable plastic hamster ball developed by NASA!

The City of Arts and Sciences is also home to Valencia’s science museum and the Oceanografic, Europe’s largest aquarium complete with a 115-foot (35 meter) shark tunnel and ten different animal habitats from all over the world. There is even an IMAX theater that plays shows in all different languages. Entrance lines can be long, so let us arrange the ticket purchase for you!

In the city center, your private guide can show you and your family how the ancient Romans lived their lives, visiting sites like the Roman baths and the underground archeological museum. For families that love a good ghost story, your guide can take you to an ancient chopping block where convicted criminals parted ways with their heads!

Parents and grandparents getting tired? Have a seat at one of our many cafes to sip on a coffee or sangria while your guide takes the kiddos on a custom made scavenger hunt or up the 207 steps to the top of the Micalet tower! For our adventurous families, we would be delighted to organize private bike or even Segway tours for you to discover Valencia with kids!

Remember in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels when Gulliver is tied up and climbed on by all the little people? Valencia’s riverbed Turia park is home to an enormous rendition of this classic literary scene, perfect for the littles in your family to scamper all over while you sit in the shade and enjoy the park.

Our Highlights for Families tour is totally customizable for your entire family. Tell us a little bit about you and yours, and let us plan your perfect private Valencia family vacation!

Spending a few days in our wonderful city? Take a look at some of our countryside excurions, like our visit to the hilltop castle at Xativa or the Roman fortress in Sagunto!
