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.

Our favorite food tour so far Irena was amazing. This was our 3rd visit to Basque Country, so we thought we might taste some pintxos we’ve had before. NOPE- Irena selected bars and pinxtos that were delicious, unique and that we could have never found on our own. We drank some amazing wine as well- her knowledge there is equally impressive.

A beautiful gift! The best morning and lunch ever! The hike was fabulous but the real gift was spending time with Irene and learning about the Basque, their traditions, passions and what it means to be Basque!! Thank you for your positive energy and enthusiasm.

Fantastic tour I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Jani was an excellent guide, Basque from Bilbao who helped me understand the local history and traditions and culinary specialties. The drive was beautiful and we spent time in a number of lovely locations, with the highlight being lunch in Gertaria at The May Flower restaurant. I had the grilled monkfish paired with txakoli wine, which was superb. I highly recommend Jani and this tour.

She walked us through a tour of some amazing bars and restaurants in Bilbao where we were treated to some award winning local dishes and drinks. It was wonderful to listen and learn from someone so rightly proud of their culture and heritage. Many thanks Jani John & Sarah

Basque Day Trip It was actually a transfer day from Bilbao to San Sebastián. We worked with Zach to arrange a wonderful day of sightseeing. We started with an amazing wine tour where we really felt the passion for winemaking from our host. We then went to Guernica to experience more of an important moment in history and extend our understanding of a painting we have long admired. Next we explored Getaria and had a delicious grilled seafood lunch. Then on to Zumaia and its incredible scenery before we ended in San Sebastián. Zach shared a lot of information with us we felt we had a better understanding of the area and its people. He was very easy to work with and everything went smoothly and on time. Totally recommend

The perfect evening! We had an absolutely fantastic experience with tour guide, Olaia. Her extensive knowledge of the city's history added depth to the tour, and she was always ready with detailed answers to our questions. The small group size of just eight people was perfect, allowing for an intimate and personalized experience. The bars we visited were well-chosen and conveniently located, making the tour enjoyable without excessive walking. The amount of food and wine provided was just right, leaving us completely satisfied by the end of the night. Olaia's expertise and the overall experience made it a memorable evening that we highly recommend to anyone visiting Bilbao!
