Fun way to get an overview.
Cynthia_G, Sept 2023
Our guide provided just the right amount of information. The pace of the ride worked out well and he made it a little extra fun by luring the apple cider.
Great experience!
Austin_M, Sept 2023

San Sebastián cycle
Marie_D, Sept 2023
Lovely, informative cycle ride delivered by Tariq. Would recommend as an introduction to the city. San Sebastián is very bike friendly and we felt very safe meandering through the streets. Good fun indeed.
Biking in Basque!
Christine_M, Aug 2023
Had a great tour with Jake. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the history. Very interesting to listen to. Also he gave us a great summary of foods to eat. Wines to drink restaurants to visit and must dos. Great experience.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
A great way to see San Sebastián! Highly recommended!
Jim_N, July 2023
Our guide, Tarik, did an excellent job of sharing cultural and historical parts of the San Sebastián area. Fortunately we had a very intimate tour since my wife and I were the only people on the tour that day. Being able to enjoy the ride and finish it with an excellent cider experience near the water made the trip well worth it! Although it was not an e-bike tour, they still provided e-bikes to us. Even though the ride was relatively flat, it was nice to have the added assistance from the e-bike when desired. The bikes are pretty old, but plenty functional. Since there are many to choose from, and the tour is based in a bike rental shop, you can hop on and try out your bike before the ride starts to make sure it’s a good fit for you. We were only in San Sebasiá for the day so it was a perfect way to spend 3 hours getting a feel for the beautiful area. Thank you, Tarik, for a wonderful time!
Amazing Bike tour in Picturesque Basque Country

Exceptional bike tour
Ana_M, June 2023
We were 4 adults on a 4 day trip to Donostia. Having been to Donostia 8 years ago with young children we decided to revisit. We learnt so much in 1 day about the history and culture of this wonderful basque region. Jake made the difference. His delivery of historical facts and personal experience was spot on. Ask him about food spots he knows it all. Thank you Jake for your warm hospitality and enthusiastic guidance through Donostia.
Fun bike tour

Bicycles! E-bikes!
Courtney_R, May 2023
Great way to get around San Sebastián by bike and learn about the sites as you’re seeing them. Carlos took us to all the beaches, taught us about Basque culture and the history of San Sebastián. The bikes were fun to ride and they’re e-bikes so they’re suitable for even novice riders (San Sebastián is bicycle friendly and generally pretty flat so it’s an enjoyable ride). Only complaint is that we didn’t get to ride more on the bikes as the places we visited were all pretty fast (on bike). Highly recommend this bike tour!
Fun, fact filled bike tour of beautiful San Sebastian!
Karen_J, May 2023
We loved our half day bike tour, filled with fun facts, history, wonderful sights, great bikes and a small group.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hola Karen Very glad you enjoyed it Thanks
A great ride through one of the most beautiful cities.
Michael_L, May 2023
Riding through beautiful San Sebastián, seeing the beaches, the “secret” tunnel, the wind comb, and cathedral were all highlights of the tour. Carlo was a great guide very engaging and informative. Though it wasn’t mentioned we used e-bikes which you could turn off if you wanted it to be like a regular bike.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi Michael Thanks so much for your time to write this wonderful review. We are so happy you enjoyed it Thanks
Beautiful and efficient tour
swoltersbellsouthnet, Apr 2023
Great tour! We had perfect weather and Carlo was a great guide. E-bikes are definitely the perfect way to see many interesting places quickly.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thanks so much Gald you had a great time
Nice bike ride, few too many stops with not much interesting information shared culturally or historically.
Michael_T, Apr 2023
Not the most engaging, interesting tour. Our daughter really didn’t enjoy it! Hard for kids. Guide was a nice guy, but not really engaging.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hello Mike Very sorry, you and your family did not enjoy the tour. For little kids, you have to know a guy “just talking” is not fun and after a while ridding the bike becomes boring. Anyways very sorry for this bad expierence and that you did not connect withe guide. Wish you the best Thanks for your word so we can improve our service.
Great way to see the city
