4 Hours private tour by walking and car


We will visit some of the best locations in the city. From the seaside to surrounding hills. We always finish the visit tasting a good pintxo in the old town.

We'll begin with a breathtaking view from Mount Igueldo, the best place to appreciate San Sebastian's natural beauty. After that, we will drive to El Peine del Viento, a sculpture by local artist Eduardo Chillida, which has become a symbol for the city since its installation in 1976. It's located at the very edge of the city.

We continue through Mount Urgull and the old city. Here you can appreciate San Sebastian's historic buildings and the remaining fortifications from the Napoleonic Wars. San Sebastian was a critical battleground during the war for independence from the French occupiers, and our tour transports you through time to this turning point in European history.

It would be a pleasure to show you my beautiful city!
