Best Free Tours in San Sebastian

Do you want to enjoy the best beaches and food of Spain away from the crowds? Then come to San Sebastian! Thanks to its quiet white sandy beaches and lush green natural surroundings, San Sebastian has been the favorite holiday destination for European kings, queens and aristocrats for decades. Joining Free Walking Tours in San Sebastian will be the perfect introduction to the most sophisticated city the north of the peninsula. In particular, the Essential San Sebastian City Tour is a classic tour with a guide at a reasonable pace around the Old Town. Guests will visit some important landmarks, stroll vibrant cobbled streets and learn about the history of the city as a port and military stronghold that survived the occupation of Napoleon’s troops. Of course, San Sebastian is a food paradise, so no visit would be complete without a cooking class, a Free Food Tour or a Pintxos Tour around the old town.

Highlights of a Free Tour in San Sebastian

San Sebastian (also known as Donostia in Basque, or Donosti for short) has a reputation as the most glamorous city in the Basque Country, and boasts one of the most romantic city beaches in Spain. But there are so many more highlights to explore! With Free Tours in San Sebastian, a local guide will take you for a stroll along the idyllic boardwalk next to La Concha beach; you will visit the monumental Gothic Cathedral to learn about the interesting history of this burgeoning trading capital; see the Baroque Basilica of Saint Mary of Coro; and explore the colorful narrow streets of the Old Town—famous for having the highest concentration of bars in the world! With San Sebastian Free Walking Tours, you will learn about the peculiarities of Basque history and language, and discover why San Sebastian became a popular beach resort in the early 20th century thanks to Queen Maria Cristina.

Things to Do in San Sebastian

Modern San Sebastian stands out for its perfect mix of 19th-century glamorous buildings, innovative art street, and for being home to some of the best restaurants in the world. From Michelin Star upscale eateries to simple local taverns with delicious pintxos, San Sebastian is a foodie’s paradise! But remember that, in contrast to what happens in the south of the country, pintxos are not free! A pintxo will cost anywhere from 1 to 4 Euros, and you will be able to choose from a simple skewer of olives and anchovy to very sophisticated snacks created by local chefs. After spending a night indulging in local food and wine, most tourists feel like doing some outdoor activity. In that case, we recommend going for a walk around Mount Urgull, the green hill that dominates San Sebastian and offers wonderful views. Culture lovers should spend some time at San Telmo Museum or discover the avant-garde Kursaal.
