All I can say is WOW from the beginning to the end. We were picked up at the port and escorted to the various Valencia site. Nacho and Bogi were extremely informative. Wonderful experience from the sites, tapas and wine. Thank you.

Contact them and ask. I would think you could as Eduardo is extremely helpful and I’m sure cruise ships dock at varying times.
