This is an exciting way to experience a small part of the Way of St James pilgrimage route and to immerse yourself into the Basque culture. The hiking tour is challenging but your funny guide makes it entertaining! At the end, chat with fellow group members over delicious Basque food!
We had a fantastic hike with our guide, Tomasz. HE was so pleasant and very knowledgable. we learned so much and enjoyed the hike and conversation. HIghly recommend this half day trip.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job! Its a must do tour.
Amazing tour led by Oihana from Urban Adventures. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to spend 1/2 a day with. We were lucky in that we were the only people on the tour, so my wife and I spent a wonderful morning hiking to Pasaia from San Sebastian. The hike was not too onerous, but also not for everyone. It was approx 6 miles from start to finish with about 500 or 600 feet of elevation change. The end of the tour we spent in a quaint village on the harbor of Pasaia and had some lovely views along the way. Highly recommend it!
The views along Saint James Way were stunning! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We did this on our honeymoon and shared the trip with several other travelers. Maria, our tour guide, was FABULOUS! She shared a lot of history about the trail and even offered her opinions on restaurants, bars, shops, etc to visit during the rest of our trip.
The tour and guide maria we're amazing ! Would highly recommend. Great way to see the coastline, maria kept us informed along the way, which was also well shaded a blessing on a v hot day. Many thanks.
It was our most authentic experience in Basque country. Oihana, with Urban Adventures via Viator, was a very lovely guide and you could tell she had a real connection with the locals we met on our hike. The pintxos at the little fishing village at the end of the hike were amazing. The views were stunning. Definitely do this!
What a great hike we had.....san sebastian views are amazing,oihana our guide was fantastic! She guided with great knowledge that also came from the heart. Thankyou oihana you made my first hike a great experience
This is a definite must do!
Maria was our local tour guide for the Way of St. James Hiking Tour from San Sebastian to a neighboring village. Maria is an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. She knows the history of the Way of St. James and the local area, and is very personable. This is a hike on a trail, not a stroll on the beach or on the city streets. It can be steep and rocky in some places. Maria and my sister helped me to keep my footing, at times. Wear good shoes for hiking! Beautiful trail and views along the Way... The village was very nice with a lovely lunch at the end of the hike. Highly recommend Maria for a guide and the hike!
Oihana, with Urban Adventures via Viator, hosted me for a half-day walk on El Camino de Santiago de Compostela St. James Way. This was quite a feat, as it was pouring rain all morning and the other participants were no-shows. We were drowned rats by the end of it. Nevertheless, this was my only day to experience the Camino, so Oihana cheerfully escorted me up the muddy path over Monte Ulia to Pasajes San Juan, where we took a short ferry ride to the other side of the bay and had some delicious pintxos and a glass of txakoli local white wine at a local seafood restaurant. The views throughout the morning were fantastic. We then returned by bus to Donostia/San Sebastian.
Oihana is a friendly young woman with a bubbly and accommodating personality, and she was a delight as a tour guide. Her English is excellent, and as a Basque woman, she is full of local cultural, political, linguistic and literary knowledge. She recommended that I watch a comedy hit film, Ocho Apellidos Bascos. I couldnt find it, but I was lucky enough to find Ocho Apellidos Catalanes with the same actors on my flight home. It was very funny. Ill keep looking for the other one!
I highly recommend this tour with Urban Adventures, and I wish I could give Oihana six stars!
This to her was the highlight of our trip to Donostia San Sebastian, for two reasons. First, the scenery along the coast is absolutely spectacular. Second, our guide, Maria, was outstanding: she was warm, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, and we learned a lot from her about local culture and history.
