We came to the Basque country and had originally planned to visit Vittoria. The day of our arrival in Bilbao we were told that San Sebastian is far more beautiful than Vittoria and we called Aitor to ask him to change our trip. He did so without any issues. Aitor knew his material, was charming and friendly. We learned a great deal from him and enjoyed the day that he spent with us. Highly recommended!
