Fallas Insider Tour in Valencia

What You'll Do

Embark on this experience in the town of Fallas, where your private guide will take you to local and authentic places, ensuring you have an amazing time!

The Fallas celebrations in in Valencia take place between the 1st and 19th March, traditionally when spring arrives.

Said to have originated when the carpenters burt the wooden stakes holding their lights throughout the dark winter months, the festival has evolved into a huge celebration.

The wooden props became extravagant wooden carvings depicting prominent people and political figures; they are now often celebrities, cartoon characters or symbols of modern day issues affecting Valencia and the world in general, to be ritualistically set alight and rendered to ash.

The sculptures can be enormous and very extravagant, some even cost in the millions of euros to make! They are placed all around the city of Valencia and there is a judging process to decide the winning structures in several categories, and an overall winner.

All the structures are burnt on the night of the 19th of March, except the winner.

Throughout the festival there is music and dancing in the streets, nightly firework displays and huge paellas are cooked.

Valencia can be a wild and lively place during these days with large crowds and many activities happening simultaneously, a truly exhilarating experience! Your local guide will help in interpreting the giant figures, shedding light on the mood and humour that the residents of Valencia share. This is a unique way to glimpse the culture and history here in Valencia

To get a feel for this inside world of Fallas, this tour will give you an  insider’s view of the local fallero clubs which work all year to make this festival what it is. You will be welcomed into one of the local club-houses and learn about the culture and the people that breathe life into this festival.

This special private guided tour allows you to experience the Fallas from a local’s viewpoint; to see, feel, taste and live Fallas.

A portion of your ticket price will be donated to the Fallas that we visit as a form of gratitude and support to the local community. Not only do you get to experience Fallas like a local, but you also get to help secure its future.
