The Urban Adventures Valencia team is led by Marco Bommarito, a seasoned tour guide and avid traveller. Marco started his career in Tourism as a tour leader for an American company leading university trips in South of Italy, later joining Intrepid Travels as a full time tour leader, leaving his footprints across Spain, Portugal, Italy, and France. Marco’s love for travel and food have brought him all around the world and helped him develop a great neck for sniffing out local sights and adventures (and food of course!)
When Marco decided it was time to take off that wanderer’s sombrero, he chose to continue his love affair with Spain by settling in Valencia because of the sun, fun and what else (food of course!). Besides immersing in the rich Valencian culture, he will tell you he cooks a mean paella and can beat anyone at flipping a thick Spanish tortilla!
As Marco strikes out on his own joining the energising Urban Adventures family, he excitedly awaits to show you around the beautiful city of Valencia, and teach you how to eat, walk and talk like a local!
