Itinerary

San Sebastian Tour

We begin this Basque experience with a guided tour of San Sebastian. We will first walk to Zurriola beach before heading to the old quarter of the city. Zurriola is a great place to watch the surfers and enjoy the beautiful Atlantic Ocean! A full walking tour through the city center and beautiful old town. We will visit sites such as the Constitution Square, La Concha Bay, churches, La Bretxa Market, and the city center. You will also be given a detailed historical overview of the city explaining the unique fiestas, culture and traditions found in the elegant city by the sea.

Fishing Village of Getaria

We will stop in the fishing port of Getaria. This quaint town on the coast has a medieval old quarter and some of the absolute best fish/seafood restaurants in the Basque Country! We will secure reservations at one of our favorite restaurants in the town for delicious lunch of grilled fish/seafood. Many of our guests claim that is the best they have ever tasted!

GeoPark of Zumaia

We will then make the short drive to the unique coastal village of Zumaia, with its famous rock formations containing fossils that date back some 100 million years. Here you will find some of the most breathtaking vistas in the entire Basque Country. The dramatically beautiful cliffs of Zumaia and the coastal Geopark was also a major shooting location for the Game of Thrones television show. We can walk along these ancient formations taking in the sea and outstanding views. We can also go for a short trek if you are up for it.

Absolutely a 10/10 Jani was an amazingly friendly and passionate guide. I loved that she and her family are Basque. She was able to authentically share with us her experience growing up in Bilbao and efforts to preserve the culture and language today. We also learned a lot about La Rioja and visited three wonderful, intimate wineries as well as LaGuardia. And absolute 10 out of 10. She even gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip. Thank you, Jani!!!

Morsom og veldig hyggelig kveld 😊 Morsom opplevelse sammen med hyggelige mennesker, og en fantastisk guide. Olaia anbefales på det varmeste. Maten og drikken hadde noen uvante smaker, men likevel en flott opplevelse.

Great experience - A must do in Bilbao This tour is a "must do" and a wonderful intro to Bilbao. We had the pleasure of having Olaia as our guide. An energetic, charming, and knowledgeable Bilbaína. Along with enjoying delicious pintxos, cider and wine, we also learned about basque culture & history. Highly recommended.

Joyous introduction to Basque food and drink led by exceptional host Olaia. Fabulous well constructed tour led by wonderful, vibrant host Olaia. Convivial company and great selection of bars with award wining wines and food. The tour is centred on the old town, so it’s compact and accessible. Great introduction to basque culture and food. Good value for money.
