See best of the old city center, the beach and city hall and best pintxo bars of San Sebastian

Welcome to San Sebastian

In this private tour, we will see the best of San Sebastian city center: those must seen like the 31st August Street, the old city hall and the Constituion Sq. , the harbour and learn about interesting facts hidden in those corners. But we will also see off the beaten track places as only a local Basque guide can provide you.

We will also enjoy best pintxos of the city in our famous bars. Those special to your tastes and which local foodies love. Finally, food is very important part of the visit to San Sebastian.

We'll see all of the sights you would see on an ordinary tour - they're certainly worthwhile. But I will also show you the special things that make San Sebastian great.

Depending on your interests and time availability, we can also go to a nice area nearby.

As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you have.


Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.
Points that will be seen are:
> Old city and old fishermen port
> City Hall and the nearby beach
> Superb views from the nearby mountain to see the city in its context.
> Pintxo bars around the city center.

A Recent Review of this tour

Aitor was a fun, knowledgeable, and awesomely attentive guide for my trip to San Sebastián and Bilbao. From helping to make recommendations before I arrived, to picking the perfect spots for me to add that I never would have known about, I am very grateful for the ways he made my visit out of this world good!
