Day 1 - Monday - Check into Hotel & Tour Briefing
Your private transfer will collect you from Valencia airport to arrive at the Westin Hotel at your leisure throughout the day. Meet with your PP Travel representative at 5pm this afternoon for a full greeting and tour briefing session so you can be totally prepared for the tomato battle on Wednesday.
Day 2 - Tuesday - Valencia Old Town Walking Tour & Evening Welcome Party
Today we have a guided tour of the Valencia 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.
Day 3 - Wednesday - 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.
Day 4 - Thursday - Departure Day
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.
• For La Tomatina it is recommended that girls wear tight fitting sports bra and/or singlet and shorts and that everyone wears footwear such as sandals or trainers/runners. All passengers take a change of clothes to Bunol and plan on throwing out everything you wear to the tomato fight.
• The City Council of Bunol who organises the La Tomatina event presently do not put an age restriction of those who can participate in the tomato fight. However you should note that the people in the tomato fight can get pretty carried away randomly throwing tomatoes in all directions. It can, wherever you may be in the tomato fight, get pretty full on.
• Due to licencing laws you must be 18 years or age or older to get in to the pre and after party venues.
