Full description

From Bilbao, leave for San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, an islet that can only be accessed by a pedestrian path. Make a panoramic tour of the area and learn the area’s dreamlike cliffs, a feature of the HBO hit series, Game of Thrones.

Continue to the Guipuzcoan town of Getaria, where we will enjoy a guided tour of its historic quarter, and where we can admire its traditional fishing port, the church of San Salvador, and the monument in honor of Juan Sebastián Elcano, a sailor who turned the world and that he was born in this small town.

Take a moment to eat in one of its many restaurants at Getaria. Enjoy the gastronomy of grilling local fish and seafood. From here, leave for San Sebastián for a guided tour of the city. See the Church of San Vicente and the Basilica of Santa María del Coro before heading back to Bilbao.

Really enjoyable trip. Tour guide was excellent with English and Spanish. Stop in Getaria to walk around and have lunch was nice. Only two hours in San Sebastián so only enough time to use the cable car and walk along the beach areas. Left at 8:30/9 in the morning and back just after 6.

Have a nice trip! Only the communication about visiting 'the cliffs of game of thrones' was not quite correct. You will be taken to a viewpoint above the cliffs and not to the site itself. The photo accompanying this tour is therefore not what you will see. Continue TOP!

Very well organized to visit so many places in one day. The same would extend the stay in San Sebastián until 8:00 p.m. Mangel our guide a charm. Thank you very much
