According to Mikel Ollo, coordinator of Guias Turísticos de Navarra , “German tourism in Sanfermines, at least from out data is still not significant. This year we had eight clients from Germany in balconies out of 1,200 that we manage, and so it was a small percentage. We have no knowledge about whether or not these clients came to Pamplona on a direct flight or by way of Bilbao or other ways. What we can say is that clients from 34 different countries this year we have covered 96% of the places offered on balconies. The majority are still the ones who ask most ask for our services, followed by Latin Americans and the rest of the world.”
Ollo adds that this year tourism from Asia and concretely from China has climbed spectacularly …almost to a ten percent of our clients.
