Pamplona is the world's greatest festival, but running with the bulls can be one of the world's greatest headaches. I know from experience. When I first traveled to Pamplona, I made every mistake possible: from booking too late, to missing the bull run by arriving too late, to standing on the wrong part of the course and getting kicked off. At the end of an exhausting (yet fun) stay in Pamplona I thought, "Why doesn't anyone offer tours for professionals 30 and up who want to enjoy the festival but not feel like they're on a European bus tour?" And Spyns was born.
We are now Pamplona's largest tour company but we're not exactly Carnival Cruises. I attend the festival every year to ensure the absolute best service but also because I love Pamplona. Size hasn't gone to our heads, in fact I’ll likely answer your call or email in the next few minutes. There is also a good chance I'll pick you up at the train station or drive you the the bullfights. Let me take a moment to explain why you should travel with us to Pamplona.
The first reason is that we're having as much fun as you. It's not unusual for me to laugh so hard that tears run down my cheeks on any given tour. I created Spyns to share my passion for travel, particularly to Pamplona, because all great vacations change you for the better. The second reason is service. Our trip leaders are there to make your vacation effortless while having fun themselves. Our goal isn’t to herd you like a group of Japanese tourists in Paris, but rather to give you what you want before you ask for it.
The third reason is our tours. In planning our adventures, we go beyond just offering the best restaurants and hotels because anyone can do that. Our Pamplona tours are more than just seeing the festival, you’re living it. That's the Spyns experience. That's the Spyns difference.
