Alex L.

Donostia, San Sebastian, Spain

My name is Alex and I am from San Sebastian in the Basque Country.

I currently work here in my hometown as a tour guide and I provide outdoor activities for my clients. I feel very blessed to work in this industry. I love to meet people and share with them the wonders of the Basque people while also learning new things about other cultures from my clients.

I have a BA in Marketing from ESIC in Madrid and this gave me the opportunity to work in different sectors such as banking and insurance. The crisis hit Spain it affected me personally forcing me to rethink my options.

My first experience working with tourists was as a surf instructor on the beaches of San Sebastian. I had to ask "can I really do what I love the most and make a living that way?" I am a nature lover, history buff, foodie and outdoor sports fanatic. With that first step five years ago, I finally found a way to combine all of these facets of my personality into the perfect profession and my tour company was born. Over the years, I have gained experience and knowledge with every client I serve. Each year is better than the last with more tours and options and my clients are happy with the experiences we provide. These past few years I have grown both personally and professionally and I am proud of the reputation my company has made for itself.

My personal goal is to exceed my client's expectations and I apply that to each and every trip which I still guide personally. You know what they say, "if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life". That pretty much sums up how I feel about San Sebastian Trips. I hope to see you in the beautiful Basque Country soon!
