  • San Sebastian: Hondarribia, San Pedro, and San Juan Tour

    1. San Sebastian: Hondarribia, San Pedro, and San Juan Tour

    After being picked up from your hotel, make a first stop is Hondarribia. On the border with France, Hondarribia is one of the most beautiful coastline villages in Gipuzkoa. Take a stroll around the port and famous Marina neighborhood which are well worth visiting. Later head to the old fishing village of San Juan (Pasaia), before you hop on the boat and cross the bay to San Pedro, the last stop. These 2 villages are part of Pasajes, which takes the name from the bay that separates them. After the tour ends, your guide will drop you off at your hotel or any other place of your convenience in San Sebastian. The short distance from the city makes this the perfect half day tour; escape from the hustle of Donostia in the morning and still have time to enjoy it in the afternoon.

    We were collected from our hotel by Ainhoa, and from the outset she was chatty and very informative of the region and it’s history. We drove to the three destinations and had a really enjoyable time with plenty of photos and memories of a beautiful part of the world.

    This tour was hectic but fantastic, Thanks to Yon the tour guide. he mixed the serious culture with the comical to perfection.(Jon, Maite Zaitut ) Also all the drivers were very patient, and I have now got an adopted brother. On a slightly sour note I booked it on the internet that said after each days activity, B L D and because it did not give an option to include food. I took it for granted it was included. No it wasn't .My spending was seriously curtailed. Even so, I would not have missed it for anything
