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

Un10/10 Ha sido una experiencia genial, Iñaki en todo momento nos ha tenido pendiente de su explicación, desde la historia de Iruña/Pamplona, hasta ponernos en la piel de un corredor de los Sanfermines, nos ha transmitido el sentimiento y orgullo de ser de Pamplona. Súper atento. Un encanto de chico. Repetiría si volviera y por supuesto lo recomiendo 100℅.

Nos encantó conocer Pamplona de la mano de Iñaki! Agradecemos su entusiasmo y emocionalidad, carne de gallina cuando nos narraba su visión y sentir con los San Fermines. Gracias por transmitir tan bonito y por hacerlo tan ameno y entretenido.
