What to expect

San Sebastian has been blessed with an incredible natural setting and there is no better place to start this tour than from the top of Mount Igueldo admiring the best views of the city. You will dive into the history of San Sebastian and Bay of Bizkaia, learn how Spanish wool changed the fate of the Basque Country and why the best vessels in the 16th century were built in local shipyards.

From Mount Igueldo you will hop on over 100 years old wooden-car funicular that will take you down to the neighborhood of Antiguo. You will visit here Peine del Viento – impressive, steel sculptures by one of the most renowned Basque artists Eduardo Chillida.

You will continue along La Concha beach passing Miramar Palace built in the end of 19th century by the Spanish Royal Family, the Romantic Area of San Sebastian, all the way to the foot of Mount Ulia in Gros district. This part of the city is called Sagües and it’s the epicenter of the city’s surf scene. It’s time to leave the car and enjoy a walk along Zurriola beach just as the locals do!

During the stroll you will discover the secrets of San Sebastian’s architecture starting from the French influences during the Belle Epoque, through Basque rationalism inspired by Bauhaus movement to the; awarded with the Contemporary Architecture Prize building of Kursaal.

Time to discover the Old Part of San Sebastian! You will walk down the narrow streets of our tiny historic part jammed with bars, gastronomic societies and lovely architecture. As the tour continues, the guide will explain what pintxos really mean, what is ‘txikiteo’ and how to enjoy these bite-size creations the Basque way. This practical course will help you to navigate local bars with confidence during the rest of your trip!

This experience wouldn’t be complete without enjoying an aperitif! And it will be exactly how you will end this tour: with a pintxo and a glass of local wine!
