My name is Gonzalo and I'm from San Sebastian. I studied psichology and started doing free tours because the interest about Basque Mithology took me into a journey where I discovered other beautiful point of views of my city and my culture. I invite you to come to a tour full of magic, where you will get not just the esentials of what San Sebastián is for a local, but the esentials of our history and our way of living in this world. I really like sharing with people what I find curious ind the world and love listening to people´s curiosities. I hope we see each other soon!

About the Tour

Would you like to delve into the essence and history of San Sebastian and have a great time?


This free tour will take you with laughter and anecdotes to the heart of the incredible capacity for transformation that San Sebastian has had over time: from being a small unimportant town to being the most important port in Castile, passing through stories of pirates, battles and wars that lead us to understand the aristocratic and bourgeois San Sebastián and the multifaceted and beautiful cosmopolitan city that we have today.

We will also delve into the essence of Basque culture, its symbols and codes to find out how to learn more about the Basques (from history, sensitivity and laughter).

Do not miss this tour because we will go through the streets, the monuments and the most essential points of interest of Donosti yesterday and today. You will also receive guidance on how to make a meaningful visit to the city and its surroundings and how to eat the best pintxos in the world.

Gonzalo nos llevó por los sitios más emblemáticos de San Sebastián, esplicando todo tipo de historias y anécdotas de cada uno de los lugares de la ciudad, también pudimos disfrutar de unas vistas estupendas de la Bahía de la Concha. Nos dio unas pinceladas de la ideocincra del caràcter donostiarra. Y para finalizar nos dio las mejores referencias de los lugares donde tomar unas buenas tapas. En fin, muy recomendable.
