Fantastic way to start your stay
We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived and discovered that our Basque bike tour of San Sebastián was aboard e-bikes. This made our 11yo son’s whole vacation and in fact we all had a blast speeding along and covering the whole of the San Sebastián territory and history, end to end. Angel was an amazing guide who shared the best details, photo stops and areas of interest with us. It was a really great way to start a 20 day vacation, even during these crazy times of COVID. We felt very safe, socially distanced and all kept our masks on for the whole journey. Highly recommend this trip.

Bike tour through San Sebastián
The bike tour was a really great thing to do with our teenage boys. They especially liked the electric bike which made the whole trip very easy. It is a great way to see and get to learn about the city and we loved it!

It was a great way to explore the city and get some local insight. It gave an aspect to San Sebastian that we wouldn't have seen (or known) otherwise. I have done a bike tour in NYC Central Park twice and now I feel it's the only way to go when exploring and navigating a new city.

Carlos was a wonderful guide. The other participant never arrived, so I was very lucky to get a tour on my own. Carlos was very knowledgeable, welcoming, and great fun to cycle around town with. Because we finished with time to spare, I also got to see the university district and a very cool, very long tunnel, formerly for trains but now for bikes, that brought us back to the tour start point! Carlos also shared some great food recommendations. This tour is an excellent way to start a visit to San Sebastian! Thanks, Carlos!

A great introduction to San Sebastián
I was lucky to be the only one on this bike ride, especially given that it’s been years since I’ve been on a bike! The guide Lillian was very helpful and patient, and went at a good pace covering all of San Sebastián, along the accessible bike tracks which are all around the city.
Lillian was very knowledgeable, and knew a lot about the history of the city, including details of the invention of the pintxos and the best bars to sample them and why there is French influence around the city.
I highly recommend this tour.

Great way to see and learn about San Sebastián
Lilian was our guide who was very informative and made the whole tour really interesting. The trip timing was just right. The bikes are electric so even if you have not ridden for a while it makes it easy. You mostly ride on cycle path. Once over the Pintxos bar near the cycle shop is very handy for lunch. It is also the bar that invented Pintxos.

This was a great way to visit both the new and old cities of San Sebastian. The ride was super easy and the sights incredible. We had Sheranie as our guide who gave an outstanding tour on the city, the history, the food and culture. She was articulate and so easy to listen to and you grasped onto all she said. After the tour she was kind enough to send an email covering information on the tour to refer to, as well as provided many restaurant recommendations. We went to 3 of them and they were all great. I highly recommend this tour and Sheranie.
