La Tomatina Day Trip
Bring on the madness that is La Tomatina! An early shuttle from Valencia to Buñol where the fight takes place. Sit back and relax while your Guide explains the origins of this crazy festival. We'll arrive in Buñol in good time for the fiesta so you can immerse yourself in the party atmosphere and find the best vantage point! Watch the locals and tourists both struggle up the greasy pole, trying their best to reach the jamon serrano (ham) placed at the top of the pole, a much sought after prize. However it often lies out of reach of even the most dedicated scrambler! Let the fight start! Dump trucks enter the narrow streets dropping off thousands of overripe, big fat, juicy tomatoes, perfect for throwing at each other. The Tomato fight lasts for an hour leaving a new shade of red to the town. Cleaning trucks roll in to clean everyone and everything down. Use the facilities provided by the trucks or head down to the river and use the shower/water taps provided there. Locals also get on-board pulling out their hoses cleaning festival goers as they pass by. Once you are cleaned off, head on back to the coach and get changed into your fresh, clean clothes. We board the coach back to our hotel in Valencia for a well earned siesta! Later you have the choice to hit the shops or hit the beach. Tonight your Guide will take you to our exclusive Busabout party where you will finish your La Tomatina Festival experience partying the night away till the sun comes up.
