San Fermin: for the experiences seeker
San Fermin is the red-and-white fiesta for the adventurous and authentic experiences seeker.
The Running of the Bulls Festival is one of a kind event that takes place in Pamplona every July. An army of locals dressed in white with red neckerchiefs will welcome you to one of the wildest festivals on earth: the running of the bulls through the narrow streets of the old town. Watching this show (or actually running in front of the bulls!) is on every traveler’s bucket list, that’s why the city is packed with people from around the world, creating a vibrant atmosphere that lasts for days.
Let Paladar y Tomar host you in a unique lifetime experience and don’t miss the essence.

One of the highlights of this day is a guided visit of the Cathedral of Royal Saint Mary, with its temple, bell tower (with the second-largest church bell in Spain), cloister and fascinating Diocesan Museum.
If you wish to attend some bull fighting to live first hand one of the main attractions of San Fermin, we can handle VIP access.

Thank you so much for this helpful list! Gary and I are still talking about what a great time we had on the trip to Spain and how much we enjoyed meeting you, Fernando and Felix. You did an amazing job and we so appreciated seeing Spain's beautiful cities, historical treasures and of course the wonderful food, wine and people!
Gary and I wanted to thank you again for your continued care and concern as we spent three additional days in Madrid with the Millars. You and Fernando were so nice to make sure all went well and to see us off when we finally had to depart.
We are wishing you all the best and a wonderful holiday season ahead,
We had a winderful time particularly thanks to your superb arrangements. We will return! Arrivederci Marco
All the private excursions that she arranged were excellent. At some point during every tour our guide received a message from our agent checking in on how everything was going. We felt very well taken care of during our honeymoon and very thankful for all the assistance Valeska provided in making this dream vacation come true.
