based on 9 reviews

A wonderful trip, perfect as an introduction to what the Basque Country has to offer. Our guide Stefane (hope I got the spelling right)was just incredible, his depth of knowledge of the history and geography/geology of the area was fantastic. He told his stories with wit and humour and kept us interested to know more. I will for sure be coming back to this most beautiful part of Spain to learn more.

Through this tour we got a nice picture of a number of villages, sights and history along the coast and in the surrounding area of Bilbao.

Stefan, our tour guide, has enriched the many great impressions with a lot of very competent information. The tour is highly recommended.

I went with my partner and everything was perfect. We will surely repeat another experience.

I liked the itinerary and of course the professionalism of the guide.
