San Sebastian and Basque Coast Day Trip From Bilbao
From $225.43
San Sebastian and the Basque Coast are known for their history and beauty, but experiencing all they have to offer in one day can be difficult. With a private tour, enjoy the undivided attention of your local guide as they guide you around the region’s highlights, including the Old Town of San Sebastián, La Concha Bay, Getaria, and Zumaia, with an itinerary that can be updated to suit your interests.
What to Expect

Begin your private tour with pickup from your Bilbao hotel or port. Board your luxury vehicle and set off for San Sebastian. Discuss any personal points of interest with your guides, who are able to customize your day’s itinerary to suit you.

On arrival, take a stroll on La Concha Beach, before heading into the old town to discover landmarks such as the Plaza de la Constitución, Catedral de Buen Pastor, and Basilica de Santa Maria. Visit Monte Igeldo at the end of the bay to enjoy views of the sea and city, then continue to Getaria, a fishing port that boasts delicious, authentic Basque cuisine. Drive on to Zumaia, a  village known for its ancient fossil formations, to admire dramatic coastal views.

Along the way, stop for pintxos (own expense) and regular picture opportunities. At the end of your tour, relax with drop-off to your choice of location in Bilbao.
