Iker B.

San Sebastian, Guipuzcoa, Spain

I was born in San Sebastian, Basque Country, I'm a person who loves travelling and sharing my experiences with people.

I have visited over 45 countries and guided travellers, friends and family for long time.
After travelling around the world in my last big trip, during 14 months, I'm even more prepared to guide you along the Basque Country and surroundings.

Would you like to listen to some of the stories I have to share, while I show you the beautiful country where I live in is?

I am a private guide and have a long experience guiding people along the Basque Country, specially around San Sebastian, Bilbao, Pamplona, Vitoria as well as the French-Basque Country and the famous Rioja Wine region.

As well as I travel abroad often, I love to work showing my city and surroundings, guiding people to the best places, not only to the touristic ones, but to the off-the-track ones too. Always adding some of my little stories and anecdotes of each place making the journey more enjoyable and unique.

Living in a place with a food-culture like us, it adds an extra value to my tours, being a member of a Gastronomy Club(famous sociedad gastronómica) in San Sebastian as I am.
This is only one of some of the tips I would offer you, considering that the only way to visit and access to them is being invited by a member! Great experience not to be missed!!

Come and feel the experience of the Basque Country with a real local guide! Ongi etorri! ("Welcome" in Basque).

A Recent Review of this guide

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!!!!!
