Iker is a superb guide and an excellent driver. He has great knowledge of both the history of the region, the architecture and contents of the Guggenheim museum and the nooks and crannies of Bilbao. I would heartily recommend him and hope to travel back to San Sebastián and use his services again!

It was excellent in EVERY way! Our guide was FANTASTIC! Only downside was the fishing village was too early to do lunch, we arrived int e late morning, and left before they started cooking fish, so we couldnt try it!

Very well organized to visit so many places in one day. The same would extend the stay in San Sebastián until 8:00 p.m. Mangel our guide a charm. Thank you very much

This tour is an excellent combination of exercise in nature (climb to Gazlelugataxe) and history (Gernika).
