Loved this trip, it was well worth taking the time out to visit. The experience was fantastic and our guide was wonderful. She was informative, friendly and very caring. I highly recommend this.
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.
very fun trip to unusual local festival. Guide gave good orientation and made trip very memorable and fun.

Barbara was wonderful as our guide in this very unique experience. It was like a 4th of July firework show up close. It was a great experience to immerse in a true Catalonia tradition.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Barbara and Alex were incredible. We went to Girona and were lucky to see human towers as well as the fire running. They were able to get us to be part of the human towers. We met the devils before the fire running and they were very happy to share what was going to happen and tell us where to be for the best experience. You will be in the fire running, so be prepared to have sparklers falling all over you. I recommend long sleeves and pants, though you will get hot. This tour takes place all over Catalonia so before you book you may want to consider how far you will be from Barcelona. The time says about 6 hours, our tour was 8 because of where we went and also because it was delayed for a soccer game. All in all one of the best experiences I have had.
Absolutely amazing - will definitely do it again and our guide, Barbara was fab!
this was brilliant and a must for anyone going to Barcelona during this festival. guides were good if i had one criticism despite telling the tour operator I would only be contactable by phone they emailed me while I was away with a new time to meet. Fortunate for me the guys waited. This tour finished our break with a bang
This was an excellent tour and would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to experience a traditional correfoc. Our guides Barbara and Alex were lovely and made sure our group was well looked after and making sure we had the best vantage point to view the fireworks or get up close and dance with the devils for the more adventurous. Loved it!
Fabulous experience original, exciting.,a once in a lifetime experience
It was an excellent tour to get away from the tourist part and see Barcelona in its true form
Thank you for such a great evening. This experience was the highlight of my trip in Barcelona. The guide punctually arrived at the meeting point in Barcelona and explained us what we were going to see during the following hours. Alex was using adjectives like marvelous, fantastic, amazing... So, I thought he was exaggerating.
After a 45 minute drive, we arrived in the village where the local festival was on. We stroll around the narrow streets and beautifully decorated plaza, where villagers were chatting and enjoying the local festival. The atmosphere was just charming. Alex shared with us the history of the village, the tradition and the funny legends behind it.
At 9pm the fire running began. Devils, drums, sparkles and laughs were all around. The narrow streets became full of colors. I could not stop taking pictures. The group finally decided to join the villagers, so we all dressed the protection clothes Alex was carrying for us and joined the group of devils. We were really living the festival.
This experience was just terrific. So, Alex was not at all exaggerating. I completely recommend this tour to anyone going to Barcelona.
This was the highlight of our stay in Barcelona. We were very lucky to experience this festival which had been going on for over 400 years, and only held for four days every year. You just cannot imagine the atmosphere unless you were there.It was an awesome street party and everybody had a good time. We were given the best seat in the square and we thoroughly enjoyed the catalan festival.
