Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 24, 2013
Running of the Bulls Travel Network™ announced today the launch of its premier web property, RunningoftheBulls.travel. Targeted at 4- and 5-star travelers, the website boasts a wide selection of tour packages, including private car services, a 24-hour concierge line and golf/spa options for some downtime at the world's largest fiesta. Private VIP terraces at the opening and closing ceremonies round out the exclusive offerings - all designed by a Pamplona native.
The Running of the Bulls takes place during the San Fermin Festival each July in the Casco Viejo (old city) of Pamplona, Spain, in the Basque region of Navarra. While the city normally boasts 200,000 residents, estimates say that the fiesta swells that number to anywhere from 1 to 1.5 million people. The spectacle of the bull run is sometimes overshadowed by the overwhelming masses that visit the city. "Our goal is to help people enjoy the fiesta, while avoiding the sometimes unpleasant aspects of the crowding," says Mark Hellmann Regouby, founder. "We've designed ways to get around the crowds, keep the champagne chilled and sample the best of the Running of the Bulls," he continued.
The site further promotes the organization's "secret weapon," Pamplona Native, Maitane Onrubia, who serves as Country Director for their Spanish tours, and Director of Concierge Services. "Maitane gets us into places we'd never go otherwise. You wouldn't believe the access we get, and the number of velvet ropes our clients are ushered past," Hellmann Regouby commented. "Who knew that just 10 minutes' drive from the bull run is a luxury resort on a beautifully landscaped golf course. With our private car service, we can offer unexpected luxury in the middle of the chaos."
Highlighting their private penthouse terraces on Plaza Consistorial, the site explains how to enjoy the Txupinazo Opening Ceremonies on July 6th, and the Pobre de Mi Closing Ceremonies on July 14th. Comparing a spot on those terraces to the front row seat at the Olympics or the 50-yard line at the Superbowl, Hellmann Regouby says, "Every year our clients are amazed. The roar of 10,000 people jammed into Plaza Consistorial is almost deafening - but the energy is something really special. One year, a Spanish TV crew came to our door asking how foreigners got the best seats in Pamplona. I had to laugh, and just told them we appreciate the friendship and hospitality of our hosts."
RunningoftheBulls.travel also features several travel aids to help people plan their trips well in advance. "La Pamplonica's Guide" is a Pamplona Travel Guide written by Onrubia from a local's perspective on how to enjoy the San Fermin Festival. Further, her Pamplona Travel Tips blog, called "La Pamplonica" is another way to get the latest advice on how to enjoy the city.
All three sites in the Running of the Bulls Travel Network™, including PamplonaBalconies.com and PamplonaHousing.com donate their profits to development projects in Peru. Through a unique partnership with US-based PersonalPhilanthropy.org, they also employ customer service personnel at a vocational training center in Lima - also supported by funds generated by the fiesta.

Offering 4- and 5-star Pamplona hotels, balcony spots to view the bull run, private airport transfers and travel concierge services, the site is a full-service solution to planning your trip to The Running of the Bulls.
