It's on your bucket list, your things to do before you are 30/die/get married/have children list, you saw it on that oh-so-famous Indian music video, you think about every time you make tomato sauce...
Whichever of the above fits you, you are reading this for a reason. And that reason is La Tomatina. The infamous festival that is all about getting into a crowd and throwing tomatoes at people you don't know and getting drenched in tomato juice, pips and skins and having the time of your life.
Well, it's that time again here at the family run ThisisValencia.com's office. As you probably know already, we are one of the top leading tours to La Tomatina. We've been doing it for more than 8 years, and have had well over a thousand people travel happily with us; we are here once again to make your day unforgettable. This time we are joined by our good friends at EncantoVLC (who will also be offering more fun whilst you are here in Valencia - more later) Not only are we an official tour operator for this unique event, but we are a local company with vast local knowledge.
It's booking time for La Tomatina, which this year takes place on Wednesday 28 August 2013.
We like to think, and have been told time and again, that we do the tour in style and comfort, and we make your lives easier and reduce your planning to a minimum.
We pick you up in the centre of Valencia by the Torres de Serrano in the old town, youget on your bus, we drive you to Buņol where the tomato fight takes place. You already have your entry wristbands, so no queuing for one! We let you go off on your own for the few hours of the tomato fight, some of our team members will join in and others will stand out and take official photos! After the tomato fight and the fun walk back to the buses where there are street parties and endless alcohol and food on offer by the street vendors, we drive you to a sunny sports complex for a lovely large al fresco Spanish meal with tapas, paella and unlimited beer and sangria. Here you will also find a large pool and tennis & padel courts,, which believe us, is more than appetizing after a day of tomato! After all this, we drive you back in to town on our air-conditioned buses and take you back to the meeting point.
Join us this year and for the ridiculously low price of 75€ (plus the entry tax of 10€ now imposed by The town hall of Buņol - see below) and you get all the following :***

PLEASE NOTE: In view of the horrific forest fires around the countryside close to the city of Valencia last year, one of which came dangerously close to the village of Buņol. We advise potential passengers that in the extremely unlikely event that there were to be another forest fire in the region on, or just before, the day of La Tomatina and the festival is cancelled by the organisers, the tour would be changed and we would show you the sights of Valencia, take you to lunch and a swim.
Try to give yourself more than a day or two in Valencia, there's so much to do here, great food, beautiful architecture, super beaches and a nightlife that's second to none.
Our good friends at EncantoVLC have come up with great ideas so you can take advantage of the glorious Mediterranean, Not one , but two fantastic catamaran cruises!
The evening after La Tomatina, a dinner cruise to watch the sunset.
The day after, a lunch-time cruise with the chance to swim and snorkel in the warm Mediterranean.
