Tour description

Tour Santander, number 1 guided tour company in Santander according to the TripAdvisor classification , we return to the fray with another piece of our Tierruca.
An ideal route to have a first contact with the capital of Cantabria , its history, its people, its traditions and with the orange umbrella guides who will teach, entertain and excite you. Get ready, not to get to know Santander, but to live it.
Welcome to Santander, the so-called "most beautiful bay in the world".
The one with the idyllic landscape, the beaches, the aristocracy of El Sardinero, the illustrious personalities, the bank,... but also the one with seafaring life, the docks, sardine pots, fishermen, netters and raqueros.

A city of many faces and contrasts that has always been and will be "The Bride of the Sea". Join us in this "love-hate" story, capable of overshadowing Romeo and Juliet, while you walk and get to know each street and monument of one of the Cantabrian jewels.

  • Our tour will begin in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento , in the heart of the city, where we will whet your cultural appetite to go to the Mercado de La Esperanza and see a sample of Santander's daily life, as well as local cuisine. Did we say cultural appetite? you will see the gazuza that enters you.
  • With our mouths watering and in case someone has sinned of gluttony, we will go to mass to ask the pae for forgiveness. Not literally, but we will visit the Church of the Annunciation, the Cathedral of Santander and its surroundings, to learn about them in detail, how Santander "married" the sea and how this is shown in the streets we walk on. This city teaches much more than it seems!!!
  • But every relationship has its moments of crisis. With the Plaza de Alfonso XIII as a witness, we will gossip about the most dramatic moments of the Santander - Mar couple. Moments in which history has had a good run , such as the explosion of Cape Machichaco or that disastrous Valentine's Day that led to the Great Fire from 1941. They love each other, but sometimes these two get to kill each other!!!
  • Not everything is drama in Santander. The expansion is the result of the best and most beautiful moments of this peculiar couple. We are going to wander through the Jardines de Pereda, the Plaza Porticada, the Plaza de Pombo or the Mercado del Este , some of the scenarios of the greatest growth and prosperity in the city. Emblematic places with a handful of illustrious characters as narrators of the story.
  • We already know a lot about Santander but, what better to crack about the relationship with your lover than the neighbors of a lifetime? To scratches , nobody beats those! For this reason, we will cross the neighborhood of El Arrabal , home to sailors and netwomen, one of the most traditional streets of the city and where, if you close your eyes and concentrate, you can still feel the saltpeter, the waves and the hustle and bustle of the boats.
  • In the end, with the high points and the low points, a long-standing relationship pays off. A tour of the Santander docks, along Paseo Pereda , will serve as the best synthesis of the city's harmony with the Cantabrian Sea and to introduce the couple's churumbeles: the Raqueros . Those little characters that, during the XIX and XX centuries, were among machines, birles, hurrias and cabbages and that became an eternal icon.

How? What are those buzzwords? Pae, roll up your sleeves, gazuza, get rid of your sheep, hurria, school,... ? Don't worry, don't bother reading this; we have not forgotten to write well. You will understand, when you come with us, that the Cantabrian people don't even have their own official language, but we are the best! And no, you will not need subtitles, we will make ourselves understood very well.

What do you say, are you excited? Doesn't all this give you a little sincio ? We have a lot, to guide you on this route and spend chachi-cinnamon.
By the way! Bring your furry friends to stretch your legs. We are 100% pet friendly!
