Iker was brilliant throughout, from my annoying many questions before we left the UK to a totally seamless experience when we were in San Sebastian. Very highly recommended!

Iker made our day in San Sebastian. He hit our request for the one-day-guiding with 110% accuracy. And as we found him extraordinary competent and companionable, we would like to give him an extra star. Recomend anyone going to San Sebastian, spend a day with Iker.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very very much for your review. Have a nice stay in San Sebastian Best wishes Iker

We took 3 tours with Iker while we were in Basque country. Iker's ability to integrate history, culture, and personal stories made our culinary expedition an unforgettable and authentic experience. Iker accommodated all our requests with unparalleled professionalism and flexibility; he even went out of his way to contact and drive us to our apartment owner who did not speak English. Heightened by his pride for his heritage, he treated us like welcomed guests in Basque country. Wonderful person and guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eskerrik asko! ( Thank you in Basque language ) Best Iker

El tour con Iker en Bilbao estuvo estupendo. Me encantó la familiaridad con que Iker nos trato. Nos sentimos como que si lo conocíamos de siempre. La información durante el tour estuvo excelente. Me encantó que siempre respondía nuestras preguntas y nos daba más información. Gracias Iker enseñarnos la ciudad de Bilbao y por tomar el tiempo y llevarnos a comer. Disfrutamos mucho de la comida y compañía. Familia Barreiro

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchísimas gracias por vuestro comentario ;) Iker

Iker was fantastic!!!! Communciated very well, always confirmed our trip. Did an excellent job sharing information about the Basque Country, his culture, and love for this area. Our time spent with him was much too short!!! He spent 11 hours with us, showing us the highlights of Pamplona and San Sebastian. We highly recommend him as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James, thank you very much for your review. Even the day was long for you, as requested, it was a pleasure to guide you along too. Best wishes from the Basque Country. ;) Iker

We had a great time with Iker. His knowledge and passion for Basque Country (including the french Basque area) clearly showed throughout the tour. We have good understanding of Basque culture, history and cuisine after the tour. San Sebastian is now my favorite in Europe.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very very much for your review! People like you make my job easy and make me feel so passionate about it. You are welcomed to come again to my-your favourite place in Europe! Iker

Date: Jul 2/13

Iker B. customized a half day walking tour of San Sebastian as well as a full day excursion to Biarritz, and key points along the way back to San Sebastian for me and my wife, Yasmin. For both tours, he did an outstanding job personalizing the tours for us, exhibiting attention to detail, and displaying a strong grasp of culture and history of the places we visited. He has a warm and engaging personality and we highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review!! You made the the tour easy going too. Enjoy the rest of your trip in San Sebastian. Best regards. Iker.

Awesome 2 days traveling the French coastline and Rioja w/Iker. Iker is professional: helpful pre-trip, prompt, information and interesting during the tours. But it was Iker's thoughtfulness--surprising me with the recipe of a dessert I loved (he called the restaurant to get it);his spontaneity and flexibility--making delightful unscheduled stops and holding a restaurant open when I made us late lingering in the wine cellar :) ;and his good-natured manner that made a great trip even better! bekine Iker

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review. I can tell that you are actually using your basque language skills hahaha. Take care and enjoy your trips! Keep in touch.

Me and my husband really loved having Iker for our tour guide. He was very kind and understanding to what we wanted to do. We had 3 tours with him and he was polite and very helpful, I recommend his service. This was our first time using Tours By Locals, but after we had our tours with him we wanted to continue the rest of our tours with him but we couldn't because we had to leave to another city but we did use Tour by Locals. Thank you very much Iker.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, I'm happy to hear that you really enjoyed. Looking forward to see you in L.A. sometime. Enjoy the rest of your trip along Spain. Best regards

I contacted Iker and my inquiry was promptly returned and we began an email exchange discussing the tour and activity possibilities available in the Basque Country. Iker is energetic, well groomed, polite and attentive to your needs. In addition he is fluent in English, Spanish & Basque. He knows his country and it's history very well and enthusiastically shares it. He is also a great cook & knows the local food scene! Me: 62, recent widower traveling alone. Iker made the trip special. Don't hesitate.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. Gary is a very easy going traveller and that made the 3 days customized tour really enjoyable. Hope to see you again in the Basque Country.
