Tour description


Do you want a tour with a small group and a relaxed atmosphere? Do not look any further!

Enjoy the essential San Sebastián Free tour and learn about the history of the most important places and monuments for two hours. In a pleasant way, I would like to introduce you to its culture, gastronomy, and idiosyncrasies so that you will definitely fall in love with the city!

Discover what Donostia was and is today!


We will begin to tour the old part. Civil nucleus until the end of the 19th century.


Constitution Plaza ; One of the most charming squares in the city. Neoclassical style. Have you noticed the numbers on the balconies?

Church of San Vicente; One of the oldest religious temples. Today in the Gothic style of the 16th century. You can't miss its organ and stained glass windows!

Basilica of Santa Maria del Coro; Baroque architectural style, one of the most beautiful religious temples in the city. We can see the holy Saint Sebastian shot. Who was Saint Sebastian?

August 31st Street; One of the streets with more history. Because?

Concha Bay; We will walk through the incomparable setting.
Look at the iconic railing, who was going to tell Juan Alday what he would become years later!

Market ; What would Donostia be without its markets. Gastronomy is a fundamental pillar!

port ; We will take a walk through its port, today merely for recreation but in the past maritime activities were the engine of the economy. Responsible for the character of the city

City hall ; Eclectic in style, old casino. The one with stories it hides!

And much more...

In short, we will do a typical tour, where in just a couple of hours, you will have been able to see the most representative parts of the city. All this, seasoned with anecdotes, fun and lots of info!

Of course, there will be no shortage of alternative plans that you cannot miss!
And its pintxos ... how to begin to taste the wonderful gastronomy of the place?
Do not worry, I'll help you!

...And if you add to that the desire and passion of someone who enjoys sharing experiences... that's it!
The Free Tour will start on the boulevard, in front of McDonalds

Do you dare to visit the city with me?
