After making your way to Valencia please head to the Expo International Hotel any time from 2pm onwards where you will be able to check in to your allocated rooms. The Expo International Hotel is in the centre of the city making it the perfect place to base yourselves for the Tomatina festival. After check-in the group is invited to get together with the tour group for a drink in the hotel before we head out to sample the famous Valencian nightlife. In the evening we offer an optional excursion [£10] where you have the chance to travel out to one of Valencia's surrounding villages and partake in an all night grape and wine festival. This event is one of the highlights of the tour and an amazing experience. The group leaves at 8pm and returns at 4am back to Valencia in order to prepare for La Tomatina.
Wednesday 29th August
La Tomatina Festival: Today is the reason we are here in Spain so after an early start we will transfer to Bunol for the world famous 'La Tomatina' tomato fight! The preparations start in the early morning and by midday it's time for the festivities to start. The tomato fight lasts for one hour and is an experience you will never forget. After the tomato fight has concluded we spend a few hours in Bunol cleaning ourselves off before transferring by charter coach back to our hotel in Valencia. After a long shower we will join together at a local bar to compare stories from this amazing day.
Thursday 31st August
A slow start to the day today as we continue the long process of removing every last piece of tomato from ourselves! Today you have free time to explore more of Valencia or perhaps head out to the beach. Check-out of the Hotel is midday which ends our accommodation package.
