"I am not a tour person, which is why I went with Spyns. I remember when I first spoke with you and you said, "We're not a 'follow the guide with the red flag' type company. That is what sold me. Thanks." Lisa Cooper, New York

Spyns (pronounced ‘spins’) is an active travel company based in Whistler, British Columbia (Canada) and Beaujolais, France. We specialize in luxury tours for small groups of 8-12 people with an emphasis on unique and personalized service. We’ve been organizing adventures in Europe since 2003 and have grown to become a leader for tours to Pamplona’s running of the bulls. But enough with the details, let’s talk about why you should travel with us.

Service: The Spyns Difference


We have a dedicated team in Pamplona (see photo) comprised of (from left to right) Christina; Carolina; Idoia; Ryan (Spyns President); Nieves; and Mikel. A former client referred to our customer service as “relentless” and that suits us just fine. We know our clients and understand that you want to experience Pamplona’s fiesta and still get a good night’s sleep. Of course we take care of all the little details before you get to the running of the bulls – hotels in Madrid or Barcelona, rental cars, and train tickets to name a few. The Spyns van meets you at Pamplona’s train station, we get you settled in your hotel room, and after that the sky’s the limit. Stay with your guide or simply explore the festival on your own. Whatever makes you happy.

"Thanks for the great trip and memories. It's the best tour I've ever taken...I hope to travel with you again." Bary Hearon

Whenever we ask former travelers to describe the Spyns difference, they smile and insist they’d never travel to Spain with anyone else. It’s hard to find the right words so they talk about all the things we can’t explain. It’s the little things they mention, the intangibles. The surprise birthday cake in a 300-year old wine cellar in Rioja, champagne on our balcony before the bull run, the traditional scarf and sash (festival gear) waiting in your hotel room upon arrival. It’s these little details that make Spyns different. It’s what makes us better. Now let’s get started planning your adventure. Call us today at 1.888.825.4720 or just request a quote.
