What people are saying about Basque Country

The tour was great our guide Javi was very sweet and super personable. He even loaned me some cash because I didn’t have enough for the wine that I purchased The txacoli winemakers were a very nice married couple, we felt like family by the end of the tour. The only thing that could’ve been better was the “ lunch” we were expecting a full lunch but just had a anchovy tapa. For the price of the tour I was expecting more food. But overall I enjoyed the tour I would just recommend bringing cash and eating before you come. Thanks again Javi he is the best!

Worth to visit. A hostess who cooks well and gets the best out of the tour. Beautiful views and of course delicious wines tasted. The guide (Experia Norte) knew everything about the city. We got a lot of history.
