Who we are and what we do

Leaders in the Market – we are called First Festival Travel for a reason! We always lead the market in creating new tours to amazing festivals, and have done so since our operation began in the nineties! We have built a strong reputation for operating well organised, professional, and fun tours to major festivals and destinations. We are often copied, but never matched.


First Festival Travel is intent on opening new doors to our new and existing clients. We have a refreshed approach to European Festival Travel and a drive to promote the cultural integrity of each festival. At the same time we remain completely committed to our long history of offering the best and most competitively priced tour options in the market.


Tours by travellers for travellers


Our management & staff are all seasoned travellers and still have the ‘wanderlust’ for exploration and adventure. Our enthusiasm for the festivals and tours we offer is transparent, and we thrive on showing you the time of your life! Our motto is to under promise and over deliver. We will never promise something we cannot guarantee, and we make sure all our customers are well informed on what to expect from their tour packages and events. The cultural integrity of the countries and events that we visit is one of our strongest core values. We believe in immersing ourselves in the vibrant culture of each country – that is the difference between being a traveller, and a tourist!


Experience counts


We have over 50 years combined experience in European festivals, events and tours and we are experts at what we do. We have built excellent relationships in each of our destinations and therefore have the ability to offer our customers unique experiences that other operators cannot – such as Beer Hall reservations at Oktoberfest, the Wine & Water festival as part of our La Tomatina packages, or diplomatic privileges at our ANZAC services on the Western Front.


Trips to suit all budgets


Our passengers are from all over the world & all walks of life, from the budget conscious to the time conscious, but all desire to make the most of every experience. For this reason our tours vary in length, transport and accommodation requirements. From budget hostel packages, to exclusive flight and hotel festival packages, we have something for you!


Knowledgeable guides


Our Festival Tour Leaders are the best in the business. They are extensively trained, and their sole purpose is to ensure you have the time of your life in a safe and secure environment. You will find our Festival Tour Leaders on hand 24 hours a day during your time with us. Our Adventure Tours are escorted by professional English speaking local guides who really understand the customs, history and the etiquette of their own countries and can provide you with unrivalled insights and a real taste of the culture.


Adventure tours


We know our destinations inside out and cover all the major highlights, best locations and greatest cultural experiences on our group tours, with some free time to do your own thing. You can also semi-tailor some of our trips to fit your requirements – stay a day or two longer, upgrade some of your accommodation or enhance your trip by bolting-on some exciting optional activities, such as scuba diving, hot air ballooning, quad biking and more!
