Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Valencia hotel and soak up the scenery on the 25-minute journey to Huerto de Consuelin, a cooking school located in a country house in Sueca. Hear how Sueca is the home of traditional Valencian paella as you drive through the rice paddies and orange orchards, then head inside to begin your authentic Paella Cooking Class.

    Under the guidance of an expert chef, learn the secrets of the perfect Valencian paella, which traditionally uses chicken and rabbit, along with rice and vegetables. Then, get hands-on as you help chop up the ingredients, prepare the meat and season the paella. Pause for a drink and sample some of the local orchard fruits as you wait for the paella to cook, then help prepare the rest of your feast, including a typical Valencian salad.

    Finally, it’s time for the best bit! Sit down to enjoy your 2-course meal of homemade paella, followed by a scrumptious dessert of homemade cake and a traditional after-dinner liqueur. Before you leave, receive your personalized ‘Ambassador of Paella’ certificate and recipe booklet to take home with you.

    With your appetite sated, continue to the Albufera National Park for the second half of your tour and experience the wild beauty of Valencia for yourself. Gaze out over Albufera lake from Montañeta dels Sants, stroll through the shady pine forest of Dehesa of the Saler and enjoy a glimpse of local life on the fishing island of El Palmar, famously the inspiration of Valencian novelist Vicente Blasco Ibañez.

    After an action-packed full-day adventure, journey back to Valencia and end your tour with drop-off at your hotel.
