I have been a tourist guide for 10 years, I have worked in travel agencies before and I have had my own one. I dedicate myself to organize tours and coordinate them. On the other hand, I have travelled for the last five years connecting with people from all around the world. I lived in New Zealand, Australia, Denmark and Italy and traveled in many countries in Latin America and Asia. Now that I have settled down in San Sebastian, the guided tours with tourists gives me a great opportunity to keep connecting with people.

Ideal para el primer día en San Sebastián. Fran te da un conocimiento general de la historia de la ciudad, así como sus constantes cambios a través de los años derivados principalmente por los tiempos de guerra pero también de paz y de bonanza

Got lucky with a private tour and Fran gave a very good introduction of the city despite the bad weather. He was also nice to provide food suggestions, highly recommend this tour !

I learnt so much about the Basque culture and the history of Donostia on this tour. Fran is really good at story telling and definitely knows the city well. I was shown the historical spots as well as the best spots for Pinchos and drinks today!

Fran’s tour gave me a solid background to work with in regards to the history of old San Sebastián. I also got a sold recommendation on a restaurant that was fabulous!
