*Deluxe hostel includes: Only two people per room, private bathroom, gym, only 10 minutes walk from the beach!
Here at Festivals all Around we pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere of fun and happiness, discovering the best festivals around Europe with a few shenanigans thrown in. We love mischief as much as anyone, and we understand that everyone likes to party differently. But some people don’t know their limit, and we want to be very clear that disrespectful behaviour will not be tolerated at all. Ever.
Welcome to Valencia! Meet us at the hostel to check in and get prepared for the mayhem to come. We have an introduction meeting at 7pm, then we’ll head out to discover the awesome Valencian night life and meet the people who will become your Festivals All Around family!
And guess what? As said we like to do things Epic so what a better way to start your Tomatina experience that having our Welcome party at The Official La Tomatina Pre Party.
Meet at Plaza de la Virgen in the center of Valencia’s old town for your guided walking tour. We’ll show you the sights and tell you the amazing history of this beautiful city.
Just after that, we will have some time for lunch and we will go with our bus to the beach for a sun-filled afternoon with games, music and sangria!
**Please note: You need to be at your bus at 6am the next morning for one of the most exhausting days of your life. You have been warned….
Meet the rest of the festivalgoers and get on a bus.Once all buses are loaded we take off to Buñol for our famous sangria party!
We arrive in Buñol and the SANGRIA PARTY BEGINS!!!
After an hour of drowning ourselves in sangria, we make our way into town to find a fantastic spot in the heart of the action!
11:00 The fight begins! In case you aren’t aware, the mission is to smash as many people with as many tomatoes as possible for the next hour until the last truck has passed.
12:00 All tomatoes down! The battle might be over, but the festival is still going strong. Once the last tomato has been thrown, the town starts pumping out drinks along with thumping music, so grab an icy-cold sangria or cerveza and dance your way back to your bus. Make sure to keep an eye out for locals in front of their houses waiting to hose you down so you are squeaky clean for the ride home.(SUPER IMPORTANT ¨YOU NEED TO BE PROPERLY CLEAN TO GET IN THE BUS BACK TO VALENCIA)
14:00 BUSES DEPART!!! IF YOU ARE NOT ON IT, IT WILL LEAVE WITHOUT YOU! As long as you don’t get carried away partying in town, by this stage you should be back on your air-conditioned bus, curled into a little ball, fast asleep.*Make sure to get back on the same bus where you left your belongings*
15:00 Back in Valencia, and time to hit the showers! After one of the most exhausting days of your life, feel free to indulge in one of Spain’s favourite customs: SIESTA!
20:30 ITS PARTY TIME! We’ll make our way to The Official Tomatina After Party where we’ll send this festival out the only way Festivals All Around knows how… MAKE IT EPIC!
Sad to say the festival has come to an end, but you leave with the memories of one of the most amazing festivals the world has to offer, and some of the best days of your life.
