After my studies I left the city to travel a bit the world, then, I was living in several countries like Ireland, France, Iran, Mexico or Benin. I learned a bit about other cultures and towns around the world.
After my experiences abroad, I decided to come back to San Sebastian and settled down in my native city for guiding and showing to visitors the magic of the region.
I love nature and on my free time I love to go into the ocean for surfing or swimming and into the mountains for climbing or trekking.
I am also passionate of history and culture and a good food lover, always ready for good tasting meal :-)
I am looking forward to meeting you and transmit you the magic of our region, let's do it combining 3 Basque passions: gastronomy, culture and nature, I am sure we are going to have a great time together.
A Recent Review of this guide
We were a group of 4 arriving on a ship with only one day in Bilboa...When we discovered the ship was docking quite a distance from Bilboa we decided to book a tour and explore the countryside of Spain...ie Sans Sebastian and some wonderful surf spots...ie Mundaka. Scenery was wonderful...mountains and ocean all in one...Had a light lunch sharing Pinxtos, beer and cider at some local bars which were delicious! Gontxu was really great. His english was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our day!
