Start/Finish Times

Approximately 10am in Valencia



Viva España! Our trip begins today in the glorious Spanish coastal city of Valencia. Meet the gang at our accommodation, then head out on the town for the chance to get to know your fellow revellers. Food fight in T minus 48 hours = befriend the enemy.

Meals:
Dinner
Today is all yours to explore Valencia's Old Quarter, taking in such highlights as the Central Market, Plaza Redonda, the Cathedral of Valencia and the Basilica of Our Lady the Forsaken. Not keen for a wander? We won't judge if you'd rather retire to the beach and work on your tan. This evening is yours to sample the delicious local cuisine, so order up big at a tapas bar and wash it all down with a sangria (or two)

Meals:
-Breakfast
We have an early start this morning - but today's excitement makes it more than worthwhile. We'll board our coaches for the included transfer to Buñol, the home of La Tomatina - the world's biggest food fight! The atmosphere building up to the 'fight' is like one big street party, with the occasional water fight added just for fun. Technically the festival doesn't kick off until someone has climbed up a greased pole to retrieve a ham (no, really) - however a cannon blast will also signal the start of the tomato onslaught at 11am. Huge trucks packed with tons of tomatoes roll through the street dropping their loads in the middle of the packed crowds. Then it's game on: everyone for themselves! The fight lasts for an hour - which may not sound like much but it's a long time if you're repeatedly getting pelted with tomatoes. Then, it's time to head back to Valencia for a shower and a well-earned rest. Tonight hopefully there are no lingering tomato-related animosities as we toast new friends and the memories of our Tomatina experience.

Meals:
-Breakfast
Wake up feeling like a human-sized bottle of ketchup? That's all part of the fun. Rinse the remains of yesterday's epic food fight from behind your ears and dive into a hearty breakfast. The trip finishes this morning, but be sure to stick around with your newfound comrades and explore Valencia some more.

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the road with us, it’s important to be aware of the following:

When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a taxi where possible, and keep a note of your accommodation details so you can find your way back to your fellow Topdeckers if you become separated.

In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to your accommodation. Be cautious when accepting drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.

It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but don’t be naïve, and be mindful of the signals you are sending out so that you don’t find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.

What to expect

 

In the hours leading up to the start of the tomato throwing, thousands of people cram into the narrow streets of Buñol and get into the swing of things with a huge water fight.

 

Locals leaning out from balconies (or carrying buckets of water), and small children toting large water pistols shower visitors with water. The streets are filled with singing, dancing and celebrations at this point.

 

In the Town Square, locals and visitors set their sights on the capture of the Palo Jabón, which officially starts the tomato fight. A smoked leg of ham is placed at the top of a specially greased pole and people take turns trying to climb the pole to release the ham. Sometimes the crowd work together to reach the top, but often it’s a free-for-all of people climbing over the top of each other to claim the glory!

 

As 11am approaches, the atmosphere in the streets changes as people prepare themselves for the tomato fight. Goggles are secured, swimming caps are worn and the noise from the crowd reaches fever pitch.

 

At 11am, the first ‘bang’ sounds and five trucks of tomatoes push through the heaving crowds, dumping literally thousands of tonnes of tomatoes in the middle of the streets to start the fight.

 

The tomato fight lasts for one hour. At the end of the hour, a second ‘bang’ is heard which announces the end of the fight.

 

Be prepared to be hosed down by the locals once the event is over!

FAQs

What should I wear?

During the tomato fight itself, girls should wear lots of layers. While the official La Tomatina rules state there must be no T-shirt ripping, many locals do not pay attention to this. We also recommend that guys wear old shorts and no T-shirt, as the boys’ T-shirts will also often be ripped from them in the crowds.

You should wear clothes that you’re happy to throw away after the event. Cheap or old clothes are the way to go.

Don’t forget to leave a change of clean clothes on the coach!

Finally, a pair of goggles is vital – tomato juice hurts when it gets in your eyes, so invest in a cheap pair of swimming goggles.

What shoes should I wear?i

You should wear closed shoes to the event because you’re likely to lose sandals or thongs/jandals/flip flops in the crowd – and you want to avoid stepping on any broken glass. An old pair of sneakers you’re happy to throw away afterwards is your best option.

Do I need tickets?

Your ticket to the event is included in the trip price and will be given to you by your Trip Leader on the day.

What if I get hungry?

The residents of Buñol sell a variety of delicious food and drink before, during and after the tomato fight. Take some euros with you in a zip up pocket.

Can I take a camera?

Bring a camera if you have an old one that you won’t mind getting messy or potentially losing. Otherwise, consider using a disposable camera or put your camera/phone in a plastic bag/clear phone sleeve.
