Day 1: 25th August, 2016
Meet your guide in the hostel breakfast area for an afternoon welcome meeting where we’ll give you the low down on what’s happening over the next 5 days. Afterwards, we’ll take you on an Orientation Walk of Valencia, show you around the old town, point out the major sights, the main shopping area, markets and all the restaurants and bars. Then why not enjoy a few drinks at a local bar to get to know your fellow trip mates

Day 2: 26th Augus, 2016
If you are feeling a little delicate after the partying last night then chill out around the hotel and Valencia. However if you are up for a bit more sightseeing join your Guide for a visit to the fabulous town of Peniscola. This is a small town located by the sea and is steeped in history going back to the Renaissance. Today you'll have a chance to get active with, cycling, windsurfing, water skiing and beach volley ball. For all those craving a bit of culture head to the Old Quarter and visit the 14th Century castle
Tonight we'll head down to the America's Cup Port for some drinks at a local beachside venue

Day 3: 27th August 2016
Use your time in the morning to put the finishing touches on your LaTomatina outfit. Mid-afternoon, it's time to hit the beach and chill out. Alternatively, grab an opportunity to check out the America's Cup Port and hire a back to get there, checking out the Turia gardens on the way. Tonight, we'll go out to a couple of local bars and get prepared for our tomato fight tomorrow

Day 4: 28th August. Bring on the madness that is La Tomatina!
An early shuttle from Valencia toBuñol 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 alike 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 and 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 into town 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 out for a night on the town! Tonight is the Busabout post-La Tomatina pub-crawl - you'll finish your La Tomatina Festival experience partying the night away till the sun comes up.
