Katja Werthmann

Katja Werthmann is an architect and a tour guide. She first came to San Sebastian on a scholarship in 1999 and fell in love with the spirit of the Basque Country and decided to stay a little bit longer. It helped that she’s a passionate surfer.  

In 2015 she started working as a tour guide in the Basque Country, the region of Rioja and the French part of the Basque Country in addition to her work as an architect. In 2017 she founded Vitamin See Tours: tailor-made tours for German and English speaking visitors. She aims to give visitors the essential Basque Country experience. In addition to city tours she offers hiking experiences, surf tours and of course the gastronomic and oenologic experience. You can’t visit the Basque Country without trying the food and through the food and recipes you understand a lot about the old traditions and customs.
