What people are saying about Buen Pastor Cathedral

The circuit is interesting, we see the main points of interest. It's better if you know the city a little to choose your stops. I recommend stopping at the Monte Igeldo funicular, to take it and enjoy the view above. And then get off (on foot it's not too long). And down you take the City Tour.

Was a sightseeing tour of the city. Unfortunately, there is no bus stop / hop off sign at the first stop at the aquarium, so we got lost where the bus stop is. Departure at the first stop 15 minutes. too late, but this is due to traffic.

Beautiful excursion! Our guide, Daniel, has shown us some wonderful places on the Basque coast, explaining every detail of its history and geography.

We had bad weather and the bus could reach us at some points, the driver was very friendly and well informed

Very nice day with a very professional guide who gave us a lot of instructive explanations
