At San Sebastian Urban Adventures we are aware that Basque culture is very rich and diverse. What characterizes the Basques is that they kept their traditions and culture while modernising them, and that is what we want you to explore. San Sebastian Urban Adventures guarantees that you will feel like a local in the Basque Country, not just as a passive visitor!
The beautiful San Sebastian retains a lot of its historic, local character. Even if many visitors come here every year, donostiarras, or people from San Sebastian, keep enjoying and being proud of their city: gastronomy is one face of it (indeed, Basques love good food and know how to make it), while mountains and sports are the other one. The many festivities that invade the city all year long are also a proof of its authenticity. We intend for you to experience all aspects of Basque life with us, by understanding them and enjoying them, just like locals. If you join our tours, we’ll be to show you a side of San Sebastian you never dreamed existed.
WHO WE ARE:
Originally from Poland, Tomasz started working as a tour leader seven years ago, when he was still a history student. This allowed him to travel around Europe and learn that indeed, this was what he wanted to do in life: to share his passion for discovering new places with travellers who want to learn more than the average visitor. Soon after, he lived in Saint Petersburg, an experience that let him discover other ways of understanding life and other ways of looking to the world.
In one of his travels he met a Basque girl, fell in love, and decided to settle down in the Basque Country. Since then, he has developed an enormous passion for San Sebastian, a wonderful city with plenty of stories worth knowing. When he discovered the different and varied towns and villages of the Basque Country and started to learn about its culture, he realised that indeed, this part of the world is a real treasure that has so much to offer travellers. This is why he decided to join Urban Adventures, and to invite people to visit the area of San Sebastian. Indeed, Urban Adventures offers a great opportunity to travel by experiencing the real local culture and showing respect to local life. That is the philosophy we keep in our tours. With us, you will not only see San Sebastian from the outside, but you will be immersed in the local everyday life and understand it as if you were part of it.
