Valencia Old Town Walking Tour - Evening Welcome Party
Today we have a guided tour of Valencias old town area with excellent local guides from Valencia Guias. In the evening we run our pre-party at the amazing outdoor UMBRACLE nightclub in the heart of the amazing city of Arts and Sciences in the middle of the old river bed that runs through the city. There will be a dedicated reserved area for our 5* hotel clients and there will be some drinks included to kick off the evening.
Day 3 - Wednesday 30 August 2017
The Big Day - La Tomatina
After an early breakfast, we transfer by coach to Bunol journey time approximately 1 hour. The Tomatina festival commences around 11am, following the desperate attempts of the human ladders to grab a large ham at the top of a greased pole in the centre of town.
Several dump trucks full of tomatoes are emptied into the main, very narrow street of the town and then the fun really begins with the locals and other travellers covering each other in tomatoes. After approximately one hour and gun blast signals the end of the fight and everyone goes for a welcome shower (if they can find one) and joins in the fiesta. We depart Bunol mid afternoon returning to our hotels in Valencia for another much needed wash and rest.
Tonight is a free night and a chance to head into the fabulous old town of Valencia or perhaps try the wonderful restaurants that line the beach front. We also offer free admission (until 9pm) to the official La Tomatina After Party. This is nearly as big as the event itself, with over 3000 people attending this great outdoor event.
Day 4 - Thursday 31 August 2017
Our La Tomatina tour finishes after breakfast today. For those of you who wish to stay on extra nights they are available on request although they must be booked before the tour begins through PP Travel to be certain that a room is available.
