What people are saying about Plaza de la Constitución, San Sebastián

This fantastic day tour from Bilbao is highly recommended. Ideal meeting point in the morning in front of the Guggenheim Museum. We (Spanish group led by Laura and English group led by Miguel) were driven to Bakio in a very comfortable bus. On a great short hike (approx. 40 minutes) with a sensational (photo) view, we approached San Jaun de Gaztelugatxe step by step. Simply wonderful: the sea, the islands, the museum church. A shorter but steeper route brought us back to the bus. Destination: San Sebastián. A short walk from the bus terminal into the old town with lots of information about the history took us to the kiosk at 2 p.m. - meeting point for everyone at 5 p.m. So we had 3 hours of free time in San Sebastián. That was great, of course. We visited the Castello Sacro Cuore, the church at the foot of it and the cathedral. A cold beer on this early summer day in April (27°) on the beach and a walk rounded off the great day.

I took the guided tour to San Sebastian and San Juan. The guides (Acierre and Aman) were super kind and helpful, as well as clear and knowledgeable. They told us many curiosities about the history of the places and also gave directions on where to eat. All information and directions were provided in both English and Spanish. The planned free time in San Sebastian was enough to have lunch and shop without anxiety. The visit to San Juan was the most tiring part of the day, but it was worth it. It's a shame there wasn't time to get to the monastery, but it would have been too tiring anyway due to the route. Excellent organization and excellent guides, highly recommended experience

Great tour, I liked that we visited San Sebastián first in the morning, before the tourists crowds. The Gaztelugatxe is just spectacular. Thanks to guides it was easy to manage the time on these two locations, so it was enough time to see everything, walk around, take pictures and have a meal in San Sebastián.

The guided tour of San Sebastián and S. Juan de Gaztelugatxe were stupendous. S.Juan de Gaztrlugatxe is an incredible place

Everything well organised. The choice of combining San Juan de Gaztelugatxe with San Sebastian is also excellent
