A guest is visiting you. Where is the first place you take them?
One of the best things you can do in my city San Sebastian is to try the local cuisine, specially the "Pintxos", the Eldorado of cuisine en miniature which satisfies the highest culinary standards. So I would take them to my favourite places to try good food and good wine.

Whats your most memorable moment while on a tour?
The most special moments is when we are able to connect our customers with family members they have here. Many people come looking for their roots so is very exciting to help them finding an old farm that was owned by their families.
What kinds of things did you have to go through to become a licensed tour guide for your city?
