A Recent Review of this tour

The last three days of our 23 day tour was spent touring the Basque Country with Iker. He was the highlight of our trip! His 9 passenger van was perfect for 6 adults. Professional and knowledgeable as expected he was also very personable, a fun person to be with. Each day was special, tailored to our tastes and preferences. A good balance between culture, arts and shopping. Restaurants were local gems not usually frequented by tourists. We had a great time! Iker is the best guide we have ever had!!!!!
