After pickup from your Bilbao hotel or port, board your private vehicle and set off for San Sebastian. Discuss any personal points of interest with your guide, who is able to customize your day’s itinerary to your taste.

Take a stroll on La Concha Beach, before heading into Old Town to discover landmarks, such as the Plaza de la Constitución, Cathedral of the Good Shepherd (Catedral de Buen Pastor), and Basilica de Santa Maria. Visit Monte Igueldo at the end of the bay to enjoy views of the sea and city, before continuing to Getaria, a fishing port that features 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/snacks (own expense) and regular picture opportunities. At the end of your tour, relax with drop-off to your choice of location in Bilbao.
