A Recent Review of this tour

My expectations were open as they should be when you are dealing with crops and time of season for vegetables. My tour guide Christina was very passionate about the information shared about the Basque area. Her culinary experience and knowledge of Basque was a great introduction to what we both experienced at the farm. The proprietor, Amara, was personable and knowledgeable of the vegetables. The farm also helps locals with special needs. Worth the trip. I am an avid gardener. So perfect for me!
