San Fermin Guided tours

Discover Pamplona Tour

Details of Pamplona Tour

A lot of people come to Pamplona with what we call a “Julius Cesar kind of attitude”: they come, they see, they conquer and they go.
Bucket list item ticked off the list. Next!
But we know you are different.
We know you’ve been waiting for a long time for this.
We know you want to take it all in, mingle with the locals, try our wonderful gastronomy and learn why we are the way we are and why we do the things
we do.
So, thank you.

We know how easy it would be for you to get lost in all the exhilaration of the moment and be driven by a very natural desire to simply party on! We’ve all done that!
So we thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about us, our festival and our precious city.

Yes, we know you also want the thrills and chills of San Fermin, and we are all for that! That’s why:

  • We teach you how to run with the Bulls
  • We find the most strategic locations for you to watch the Bull Run from

My husband and I enjoyed having Francisco as our tour guide in 2013. He is local, which gives him a unique knowledge of the history and culture. His guiding style is friendly, personable, energetic, actually… totally awesome! Francisco was an excellent guide. He was always available to answer our questions, he made everyone feel at home in his country, he taught us a lot about his culture, as only a local guide could, and he was a super fun person to be around!

Learn How to Run with the Bulls  Tour

Details of Learn How to Run Tour

“Soon after dawn the first day of the fiesta […], hundreds of youths gathered at the edge of town near the railroad station. Men climbed upon six big cages, reached down and opened them. Out walked six bulls, blinking in the sunlight. They were strong, lithe, handsome, each branded with the mark of Don Ernesto Blanco. They looked around, uncertain what to do, until from the crowd of youths came a yell: “Hah! Hah! . . . Toro!” The bulls lowered their heads, charged the crowd. The crowd took to its heels, the bulls stampeding in pursuit.”

Ernest Miller Hemigway, The Sun Also Rises, 1925

Question: Do you comprehend the implications of the last sentence in the above paragraph written by Hemingway himself?

Just in case, let us repeat it:
“The bulls lowered their heads, charged the crowd. The crowd took to its heels, the bulls stampeding in pursuit”.
There are four keywords here we want to emphasize: bulls, charged, stampeding and pursuit.
These four words alone paint a very clear picture of what you are about to face:
A stampede of bulls charging against you and pursuing you for 875 meters.

Another question: are you prepared for it?

Sure, you’re very fit.
Yes, you are an excellent runner.
And of course, you are an adrenaline junky.
But probably never had to navigate your way through a stampede of raging bulls averaging 1300 pounds in weight in a crowded and narrow alley.
If that’s the case and you are planning on running with the bulls in San Fermín, you need to “learn how to run with local experts”.

Yes, there’s no denying it – we are talking about full on “crazy and wild”! However, there are some techniques we can teach you to have a safer run. These include:

  • How to access the route of the run
  • How when and where you should locate yourself depending on your physical abilities and your fitness level
  • What you should do before, during and after the run
  • How to run to ensure that your “personal photographer” takes the best possible social media-worthy pictures of you from any vantage point.

Please note:

  • Advance reservation is required.
  • It’s important to be punctual as
    there are other guests in the
    tour and we are not able to wait
    for anybody.
  • Prices quoted are per person –
    whether you intend to run in El
    Encierro or not.
