Sightseeing in the Spanish Basque country with American Driver-Guide


We'll depart directly from the cruise ship terminal.
The drive from Bilbao to San Sebastian takes about 1hr 15mins. My minivan has A/C and large panoramic windows.
Sitting on the Bay of Biscay, San Sebastian is 20 kms from the french border. This lovely coastal city in the Spanish Basque Country is often referred to as "the Pearl of the Atlantic Coast".
San Sebastian - or Donostia in Basque - is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Europe!

Discover San Sebastian, its cosmopolitan culture and elegant architecture. This Basque city has been a popular destination for European aristocracy - for over 200 years!

A Recent Review of this tour

Christian gave 5 of us a great day with lots of information and and sights to appreciate. However, I wish we had had half an hour longer in the town of San Sebastian. The small world connection he had with my friend Lance Mann made for a lively interaction.
