This is the City where Kings, Queens, Dictators and Nobles from Spain and other parts of Europe spent and still spend their summers! With its unique diversity and lay out, San Sebastian has much to offer. It really depends on your interests! From the proper way to eat pintxos (tapas), modern art works, the aquarium, seeing the various styles of architecture to just relaxing on the beach or the great night life, it is all right here!!
We will get you going in the right direction with a good understanding of the Basque people, language, culture and food and give you other ideas for YOU to decide what interests you and how to get there and enjoy this “Paris” of the South. We want to deliver the best quality experience to all our guests. We keep the number of guests in a group small, so that YOU feel like a visiting friend and not a sheep in the heard. Our minimum size group is 2 (party of 1 please email for availability) and we do not like to get more than 10 (unless private tour-please email).

Whether you are going to stop here for the day or spend your entire vacation in San Sebastian, Spain (Donostia), let us give you an insight into this unique region and culture during one of our tours.
In Donostia/San Sebastian, much like in the rest of the Iberian peninsula, things follow a certain time line. If you get off that time line or are not aware of it, it can make your visit here less enjoyable. On all our tours, we help you understand the time line and explain to you the why´s and the how to´s. From the markets that close at 2 pm and the traditional Pintxos done before lunch, to the retail shops closing between 1 and 4 pm and the restaurants opening back up in the late afternoon early evening, everything here is done at certain times for certain reasons.
Our City/Cultural Sightseeing hybrid tour and our Pintxos / Tapas food & wine tour, given in English by a native English-speaking expat (on request), will help you experience and understand the differences between the uniqueness of Basque region and the rest of Spain while at the same time touching the history, sights and flavors of this beautiful city by the sea.
You can combine the City/Cultural Tour with the Pintxo Tour for a great head start on San Sebastian and almost be a local within your first day here. To enjoy this full experience, click on Combo Tour!
