I went to spend the day with my daughter in San Sebastián and wanted to do something different. I found the APP and chose the walk around the bay. What a success!!!!! All by mobile. Book, pay and show tickets. No paper and no waiting. It tells you if there are places (you choose the day and time), sends the tickets, the reminder and how to get there. The tour of the bay was a joy even though I would have stayed all morning. We stayed in the lower part, alone, very well. It has bathrooms, which are not bad at all, clean... It's much cheaper than some ice cream (ahem) and of course more interesting and relaxing for me. I will repeat

Very nice activity, a quiet moment with a magnificent landscape! Super friendly staff on board I really recommend, both with friends and family

A beautiful hour to relax and enjoy lovely views !!!
