A great full day trip from Bilbao. Thanks to it, we were able to visit previously planned places in one day, traveling by a comfortable coach. The amiable and knowledgeable guide was doing well with the 50 bilingual group. The program was not overloaded and there was enough free time. Good price-quality ratio. I highly recommend this trip, especially to tourists who don't have a car in Bilbao.

Great experience, definitely recommended for new visitors to this area. We went back to a few of the restaurants that were introduced to us during the tour. Our guide really did pick the best ones!

We were so lucky to have Alex as a guide. Very knowledgeable, punctual and friendly!

Wonderful coach comfortable seats and leg room. A trip well worth the money.

Our guide was excellent! We had a great time even with the rain.
