The founder of Tours Valencia, the Dutch Roos Oudemans, has been living in Valencia since November 2008. In Valencia she found out that certain information in tour guides was not correct and that some restaurants were even closed. Because of this, Roos decided to start a website that gives a lot of useful information that can be updated easily. This happened in 2009 with the foundation of the website.
After living in Valencia for five months, Roos discovered a cosy district. This was the area where locals came to have a drink or to grab a bite. After this the idea was born to inform travellers about the authentic, cosy tapas bars where Valencian people love to go as well.
The tapas tour was a huge success. Shortly after, more tours were added to Tours Valencia, like workshops and excursions. In 2011 Roos Oudemans became an official guide in the Comunidad Valencia, i.e. the region of Valencia.
