A fantastic tour of San Sebastián old town with traditional drinks and Pintxos. Jon was full of historical and interesting facts about the area and chose some fantastic Pintxos and drinks to share with us. The cheesecake and raisin liquor was my absolute favourite! Delicious!! We did this on our final evening and we thought it would actually be more useful to do it at the beginning so you can revisit some of the restaurants to sample the amazing food again!

It was an interesting and informed tour. Our guide was super punctual, very friendly and accommodating. He shared a lot of information about the Basque Country on the bus. In Biarritz and San Sebastián we had enough time to get an overview. In each city he drove us to a vantage point where we could take nice photos. Was worth it!!

This was GREAT! You’ll get a good feel for the city while seeing a few things only locals would know about. Our guide was Alba who explained many of the areas and history of each point of interest. The ride is relatively easy on the E bikes and San Sebastián is very bike friendly.

We enjoyed wonderful landscapes and nice places - a very pleasent way to spent time near Bilbao after the New Year Eve.

Best trip in Bilbao October 2022 before cruise Imanol was the tour guide ⭐️
