Hello walker! My name is Iñaki, professional guide (registration number GA-4901) with a degree in history, native of Pamplona with experience in Navarra, Scotland and Rome. As a fan of the eternal city and its history, I offer a unique experience in which you feel like a soldier parading through its streets, a senator ready to give his speech or Bernini himself planning his next project to overshadow Borromini, his eternal rival. even visit the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated...

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

Nos ha sorprendido muy gratamente, lo recomendamos al 100% por su gran entusiasmo en todas sus explicaciones y se nota el gran amor que siente por su tierra y en especial por los encierros que lleva implícito en su ADN y que te contagia hasta las personas que desconocemos el mundo de los toros. Nos ha encantado el poder compartir su tiempo para conocer esta ciudad tan bonita. Gracias Iñaki!!!

El tour con Iñaki fue espectacular! Nos transmitió la pasión por su Iruña natal y por sus tradiciones, incluso compartiendo su perspectiva de cómo ha cambiado el encierro de san Fermín en estos años. Se nota que es importante para el, para su familia y su cultura, eskerrik asco por abrirte así con nosotras! Y sus recomendaciones de pintxos son increíbles!
