Another basque Country with a private guide


Today I invite you to discover the French part of the Basque Coast. We will drive from San Sebastian to Biarritz or from Biarritz to San Sebastian, visiting magnificent coastal villages.
Hondarribia is the last Spanish stand on the French frontier. This place is separated in two parts: the stone and the wooden one. Here you'll find a real castle and a marvel of fishermen's district.
Saint Jean de Luz is a charming fishermen and pirate village. You will fall in love with it at first sight! Once upon a time a king married a beautiful princess, and this fairy tale happened here, in Saint Jean de Luz. The village cherishes the memory of that event: it's even possible to try the desert served to His Majesty at the wedding meal!
Biarritz is the city of Glamour: in the XIX century French Emperors decided to establish here their summer residence. Soon this sleepy fisher village turned into a magnificent resort for the aristocracy and marvellous villas surrounded Imperial Du Palais.

A Recent Review of this tour

Emma was an excellent tour guide. She was very punctual, very knowledgeable and very caring, as my husband is visually impaired and needed a little more assistance and patience. Emma's pleasant personality coupled with her historical knowledge of San Sebastian, Biarritz and Bilbao made our trip enlightening and very pleasant. The assistance of her husband as a driver was very much welcome, as we were able to visit places without worrying about driving, parking and felt very safe.
