What an awesome Tour, totally enjoyed it

Joan was our Tour guide, very knowledgeable about the festival and it's history also very personable. picked us up right on time at location specified. the ride to Sitges, the city where the festival took place was such a beautiful scenic ride. The festival was amazing with all the fireworks, dancing, drums and walking. Thank goodness we had hats, eye protectors, and wraps to protect our cloths. So glad we took this awesome tour! totally recommend it.

Absolutely amazing. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR. You will have one of the best nights in your life. We were actually part of the parade with fireproof smock and glasses provided. The streets were barricaded off with crowds behind them watching the parade us included for a couple of hours through the streets with fireworks spinning and colour everywhere along with continuous cracking and dancing. our guide knew the people and was with us all the time. Fantastic experience

This by far was one of the best...

This by far was one of the best things I did while in Barcelona. My guides were amazing. I was late getting to the meeting location and they didn't mind waiting for me. It was like being in the center of a fireworks display. I enjoyed every minute of it and would do it again and again.

very fun trip to unusual local...
