Enjoy the most beautiful Coastal villages from both Basque sides (French & Spanish)


In this tour we will visit 3 coastal towns full of magic and history: Biarritz, Saint Jean de Luz and Hondarribia.

Biarritz: At the french coast was the choice of empress Eugenia de Montijo to pass her royal hollidays and became the main touristic resort in Europe at the Belle Epoque. Nowadays the city still conserves the magic of its luxury past.

Saint Jean de Luz is an old pirate town that hosted in XVII century one of the most important weddings ever. The one that timbered the peace between Spain and France, the one between Mº Teresa and Louis XIV. Nowadays this town still conserves its medieval magic.

Hondarribia is the pearl of the Basque coast, medieval and fishing town, both characters mix in a harmonious way here.

A Recent Review of this tour

We decided at the last minute while in San Sebastian to take a tour of the Basque towns on the coast. We were very lucky to get Gontxu as our guide. Gontxu is a sweet, funny, and very knowledgeable local guide from San Sebastian who spoke english. He was very flexible on what we wanted to see in each town. We saw Biarritz, St Jean De Lux and Hondarribi seeing all the highlights where we ended our day with local Basque music and dance with pinxos/wine. Wow. Highly recommend the tour and Gontxu.
