Amazing!! The unlimited beer and sangria was what originally sold me on it, but it was more than that. Great place for people who like to party and have fun. Be aware of their activities, not for shy personalities, but a great way to meet new people. The food was amazing and accommodation were good, bathroom got a little messy at some point but would do it all over again.

I would highly recommend it to other school leavers who are travelling at the beginning of the year so won't be in Europe for the bigger party, Oktoberfest.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would bring more of my friends. Even though I made a lot of new friends, I also wish more of my friends were there.

Met so many new people! Amazing party!

One of my best experiences while traveling through Europe! I have never been in Spain before so I didn’t know anything about the spanish culture, but this just blew my mind away.

A good thing was the open bar at the campsite to get ready for the craziness and the other travellers that made this an incredible stay. One little thing,the queues for breakfast in the morning were pretty long, but the food was good, so it was worth waiting for it!

The staff was super friendly, and was helpfull with my dietary requirements!

What was your funniest moment?
Definetly the fight! People go mad over tomatos its so fun!

Loved it!

Great party, good drinks, awesome people! I had a very good time here and I’d definitely come back. I enjoyed spending time with the staff, they were very energetic and interested! it was like spending time with an extra group of friends. The activities offered by the company are good fun as well. It was my first time on Ibiza and I loved spending time on the beach and getting to know the island.
If you are looking for a fun time and looking to meet new people, this is definitely the place you need to book!!!!

Surfcamp Stoke Travel

My girlfriend and I went on a Spain-trip together and one of our stops was Zarautz. This area is breathtaking but we still wanted to get in touch with other travellers. So we booked a trip with Stoke and it was a great experience. Tents were a little small, but it was fine since we are a couple. Surf lessons were amazing, the instructores explained every step precisely and were very patient. Food was fresh and tasty, and we participated in a lot of different activities. So we got great value for our money

What was your funniest moment?
The first moment I stepped on my surfboard, I got thrown off right away...

Intense lifetime experience

It was intense! Stoke did an incredible job by entertaining us the whole time we were there. We were never missing information or help, always someone there to give advice or put a drink in your hands. Tents were a little small for two persons, but sleeping was just a minor matter anyway. The run was a blast, a bit scary but a lifetime experience! This was so much more than just the bulls run. I met lots of great people from all different countries and had enjoyed the unlimited beer and sangria!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't expect a quiet place where you can sleep and rest a lot. This campsite is made for parties and fun! Try to enjoy any minute, because this will be a once in a lifetime experience.

Chris van der Jagt

Job Title
Barcelona Bookings Manager

Chris, tell us about your role at Stoke Travel.

I'm responsible for all incoming bookings from Barcelona or related to Barcelona. This includes our City Breaks, Boat Parties, and Day trips and activities in Barcelona. Aside from this, I do some back office work to get our company optimized on online travel agencies such as and Expedia.

What is your favorite travel memory?

Springfest with Stoke Travel. I worked on the campsite there which was a party in itself. The beer halls were very fun as well. It was snowing and very cold the week I was there, but this did not interfere with the fun we had with each other and the customers!

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I started as an intern and am now a full-time employee. I wrote my graduation thesis for Stoke Travel and had such a good time with the company that I wanted to stay. Luckily for me, Stoke was thinking the same thing about me.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

Oktoberfest. I went to Springfest and it was amazing. I'd love to do it again, but bigger - and that's Oktoberfest. My colleagues all speak highly of it, that it's an enhanced version of Springfest, so I can't wait to get back to Munich and the beer halls.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

Stoke has a very laid back and flexible team with a personal touch towards the customers. As a customer you are not just a number here to make money off, people take the time for you and add a personal touch to it. You can actually meet us at the festivals and have a beer!

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

The personal touch makes it stand out from the other travel companies who are getting more and more automated. We don't have automated replies when you communicate with us through email and you will always get an actual person on the phone when you call us!

Another success factor is the flexibility. We are able to move things around for your benefit, it's not this is this and that is that.
