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 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.

This was a fabulous tour. Pictures do not do justice to the celebration. The experience was made even better by our wonderful local guide Alex Puiol. This is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

This was our favorite tour in Spain (Madrid, Sevilla, Malaga, and Barcelona). It took about 1-1/4 hours to get to the Banyoles village. Our tour guides, Barbara and Alex of LivingIt, were outstanding! We were treated like royalty at this annual festival where this year, the children were running down the street. We wore the protective caps provided by LivingIt and we were so delighted to run with the children. After the event, we visited with the devils, experienced local food, and took a group picture with all the locals. This was a highly memorable experience. The next day we bought a Catalonian flag in honor of their cause and these wonderful people. The tour is expensive and long, but worth every minute of it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This was the best tour I have ever been on. It was great from start to finish. The tour guides included us in the whole show. We met the fire running team members and had the time of our lives. Can't recommend this tour highly enough.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We really enjoyed this tour and would rank it as one of the best we have ever taken. We participated in the Fire Running festival of a small town. We were welcomed by the local people as honored guests. The festival was fun, the local people were great and we all had a wonderful time. the Tour Guide was interesting and informative and made sure we were right in the middle of everything. All in all a wonderful experience in getting to know and interact with the local people.
