    A nice visit to Basque towns

    We had a great time during this tour. We got to see some of the Northern Spain landscape. The guide (Estephan) was very good and knowledgeable. Everything was on time. I wish we could stay more time in the small towns. The salt valley is nice but I think the tour (one hour) is too long.

    Great way to see the Basque region

    This tour packs a lot in, and the in between coach travel bits are just as interesting. Our guide was excellent , dealing proficiently with a dual Spanish and English understanding audience. Pick up was as notified - all comms in advance were clear and in good time. The coach was modern and we felt safe on the many winding mountain roads. To pack in everything was a feat in itself - Vitoria quick tour, Salt springs tour, Quick Ordana stop, lunch in a beautiful converted nunnery, and crossing the Vizcaya Transporter bridge. Highly recommended
