Tour description

The capital of the old kingdom has stood proud for centuries and its streets keep secrets that only the true Pamplonicans know. Discover the first Basques who founded it, watch the arrival of the Roman legions, fight against the Franks and Visigoths, follow in the footsteps of the kings who established the kingdom of Navarre and the knights who defended it, listen to the echoes of wars and revolts, accompany Heminway in his excursions and outrages in San Fermin, and lastly, tie your red scarf around your neck, roll up your newspaper, adjust the laces of your shoes and... immerse yourself in the route of the running of the bulls hand in hand with a runner. Hear the clamor of the people, the rumor of the herd approaching, make your way, place yourself on the antlers, listen to the rumble of the hooves and the snorts of the horned ones behind you...! and retire after the race to make way for the other runners! You dare?
I wait for you in old Iruñea

Iñaqui transpira pasión y amor por Pamplona y así la transmite a todo aquel que quiera vivir la experiencia. No deberías perderte éste tour. Además de contarla en primera persona, también te ilustrará sobre el pasado y la historia de la ciudad y cómo llegó a ser lo que es hoy.

Tour muy ameno y divertido. No me imagino un guía turístico en Pamplona mejor que Iñaki. Pamplonica de la Navarrería, corredor de encierros de los de verdad, y amante y buen conocedor de la historia de Navarra. Y además, transmite con mucha intensidad y pasión todo lo relacionado con su tierra, sus fiestas y su gastronomía. Un 10.

Un 10 para Iñaki, la ruta y las explicaciones. Demostró no tan solo tener un gran conocimiento, sino ser un apasionado del trabajo que hace día día. Y el resultado es excepcional. También nos sentimos muy cómodos con la proximidad del guía y por no ir en un grupo excesivamente grande (en los que habitualmente te sientes como un borrego ocupando los espacios públicos y la interacción no es tan fluida). Recomendable!
