The city of Valencia is on fire!
Every year Valencia’s grandest annual festival, Las Fallas, is celebrated from 15 till 19 March in a continuous round-the-clock party. This is the third year the Fallas festival is recognized as cultural heritage by UNESCO! And we are offering our 3 fallas tours again!
Read more about the fallas on our blog
A Falla is a big sculpted monument with a message, normally to criticize everything and anyone imaginable. These huge monuments made of materials like paper mache, wood and carbon board reach extravagant heights and all are great displays of art. You have four days to see about 700 fallas that are mounted throughout the city. On the final night of Las Fallas, around midnight on March 19, these fallas are burnt as huge bonfires. This is known as the cremà (the burning), the climax of the whole event, and the reason why the constructions are called fallas (torches).
Before the official start of the Fallas, there are already lots of things going on. Every day starting on the 1st of March at 14.00 we have a firecracker show called a mascletá. Streets are busy, restaurants do not always take reservations, there are street markets and food, some streets are blocked for traffic and many more things…
As a visitor of the fallas festival you might find it hard to understand the message of the fallas and you might not know where to find the best fallas. This is why we would like to take you on our Fallas tours, to give you a real authentic fallas experience. We offer 3 different fallas tours to combine, experience the authentic fallas with a local!

“I speak on behalf of our whole group, and can tell that we have had an incredible nice trip. First of all, Suzie and Gabriel are lovely guides, knowing, kind, positive and with a great mood. The Fallas is a bucket list event that you have to experience! The fallas tours three were exciting in each and every way and the organization of reserving our restaurants, transfers & tickets was done perfectly. A wonderful experience that I can not recommend enough to others.”Jason F.Fallas tours & organisation
