Nice walk and talk in Donostia

Our greeter Maite met a nice couple from Australia. Before visiting Donostia / San Sebastian they had travelled to Andalucia for a few days.
Liz and Tom were very interested in our culture (art, history, gastronomic societies) and they were very well informed about this area.
They had already visited the Old Town on their own, so this time they went through Cathedral side and Tabakalera, International centre of Culture.
They visited Gros neighbourhood as well, walked nearby Gros Zurriola beach, etc

Adiorik ez

Hoy es un día triste. Se nos ha ido Jose Luis, nuestro querido compañero de Donostia Greeters. Casualmente en una de las visitas técnicas que solemos realizar para seguir formándonos sobre nuestra comarca y sus puntos de interés. Desde Donostia Greeters queremos dar un fuerte abrazo a su familia.

Eskerrik asko, Jose Luis, eman diguzun guztiagatik. Besarkada bero bat familiarentzat Donostiako greeterron partez.

Drumming in Donostia

Americans Robert and Carol on their travels enjoy places and local atmopheres and that’s what they did with our greeter Ana. Pleasantly surprised with the history of the #Tamborrada did not hesitate to take a funny photographic and sonorous memory, which both our greeter and them, always remembered.

We hope to see them again.

Our greeter Maite showed them some of the most special places in the city. They visited the harbour, Paseo de los Curas (Priest’s Promenade), the Old Town, the city center and Tabakalera.

Visita desde París

Pues si, desde París ha venido Jordi a la ciudad con un motivo principal, ver algunas películas del Festival, pero ¡oh! sorpresa, casi todas las películas que él quería ver, el taquillaje estaba agotado. Pero, “a malas noticias, buena cara” por eso, ha decidido hacer una amplia visita con nosotros por la ciudad, esta que ya conocía, pero ahora ha sido diferente.

Jordi es greeter en París, y le gusta hablar castellano, por  eso la visita ha sido en dicho idioma.

Great afternoon with Americans

For Americans Darren and Lisa our city was a great discovery by the hand of our greeter. The excellent weather accompanied them during the tour they made and in which they met Basque oringenes, culture, history and Historical events. The great afternoon ended with a tasting of pintxos in the old town.
Wonderful day!!

Pintxos with American travelers

Mark and Louella our visitors from U.S. enjoyed a pleasant afternoon walking through the “Bahia de la Concha”, which they loved, with our greeter Ana who told them stories and anecdotes about the city.

The good weather and pleasant atmosphere facilitated a nice chat with a tasting of pintxos in the Old Town.

Walk and talk with travelers from USA

It was a nice visit with Alan, Brenda and Mathew. Fortunately, it had stopped raining when they met. They enjoyed visiting Tabakalera with our greeter Maite and were interested in going to concerts. They liked the churches, the beaches and the noria. They also walked along the bridges and enjoyed hearing that Woody Allen is recording a movie in the city. They also enjoyed talking about Basque music and sports.
