Excellent bike tour incorporating the tourist areas along with cycle through the various residential areas, business area and university. Bikes are very comfortable and easy to use. Our guide, Higoi, gave us an entertaining tour explaining the history of the region right up to present day and made this an excellent way to spend 3-3.5 hours in getting to see a little bit of everything in San Sebastián and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who can ride a bike!!!
