Our Tour Guide Thomas, was very knowledgeable on all sorts of Spanish topics and particually the Camino Trail that we walked a part of. We enjoyed his company and the coastal views it offered.
The walk does require a level of fitness if it is to be enjoyed.
A must do if you are in San Sebastian.

Our tour guide, Maria, was the BEST guide we've had on our 2 week trip to Spain. It's one thing to have such a knowledgable and friendly guide, but another to have a guide that would go out of her way to welcome you to her city AFTER the tour has ended. The views were breath taking, to say the least. There are a few stretches of physical challenges for the novice hiker. This is a hike where you will break sweat but reap the rewards of such effort.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Our guide, Maria, is very friendly and thoughtful guide. We enjoyed the hike very much despite the drizzle. She also gave us insight to the Basque culture and even tips on how to cook Spanish omelette!

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.
