Fantasitc and thoughtful tour of the City - highly recommend
Mar 2020
Angel was a brilliant guide - he took us to the hidden parks and palaces of the City which any tourist would struggle to find on their own. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the sites and full of interesting facts and stories. I would highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful tour, bad weather
Nov 2019 • Couples
It was supposed to be a wonderful tour, in unknown places, but the bad weather - heavy rain and winds - limited this tour. We could not enter into the parks but the walking tour with Angel was excellent, beyond our expectations.

Hi! Thanks for your positive feedback regardless of our terrible weather and uncontrollable situation regqrding the parks. You were exceptional guests and I think that the experience wouldn't have been the same without your warm company. I'm very happy that you enjoyed the tour anyway! Thanks for choosing and sorry for the inconvenience!

Hike through history
Oct 2019 • Couples
My husband and I really enjoyed this three hour tour off the beaten path to discover royal parks and palaces and just enough history to give it all some context. Angel exposed us to many sides of life here, which was fascinating. The parks are lovely and a welcome respite from the tourist crowds. Pacing was perfect. Highly recommend this tour.

Fabulous morning hike
Excellent way to spend 3 hours walking through hidden parks in San Sebastián while learning about its history. We explored neighborhoods we would have never seen and developed a greater appreciation of the city. Angel is so knowledgeable, interesting and has designed a perfect hike. A definite recommendation!

Hello friends, thanks you very much for commenting on our time together. I'm very happy that this tour helped you understand the city in a different way, at the same time that we visited some unique places that were unspoiled by the crowds. I hope you are both having a great time back home.

Dear Gruffudd, thanks for recommending my tour and noticing how this tours is different that the popular ones, taking you off the well-trodden path and learning the incredible history of this beautiful corner of Europe. Thanks again!
