My Mother and I traveled to San Sebastian in late October 2017. We booked a private tour with ToursByLocals for a day trip to Lourdes. We were lucky to have Iker as our guide, he is friendly and personable, very knowledgeable, kind, and overall just a good person. The experience was amazing. Lourdes is a fascinating place and Ikar guided us through all the areas we wanted to see with no hassle. He even took the most amazing photograph with my phone, one of my favorite photos from the entire trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review & comment :-) Best wishes from San Sebastian Iker
Had a fantastic day on the Lourdes tour with Iker. He shared with us so much of his knowledge about Basque Country and Lourdes. Great guide thanks Iker.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review and rating. Best wishes Iker

We took the San Sebastian night tour and the Lourdes tour. His historical knowledge was impressive. Having a large group including children and elderly was not easy. Iker although managed to make everyone happy and went beyond the call of duty. Preparing food for us at his social culinary club was fantastic and having a local show us the best Pinxtos pubs and access to the front of the line was priceless. He made us feel part of his family and at the same time extremely professional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments Alex. Hope to see you soon!! Best regards Iker
Excellent tour! It was a private, slow-paced and very personalized tour. Iker, our tour guide was very good and a lovely person! I highly recommend this experience to network of friends and families.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review Rita. Best wishes Iker

My trip to Lourdes was very special. Iker is knowledgeable and willing to share the history of Lourdes and Mary's apparitions, however he was also respectful of the time that I wanted to spend in quiet prayer or reflection. I was most appreciative of this. One does not always find this. Thank you Iker.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your reviews. It was a pleasure to guide you. Thank you again Best wishes Iker

We took a tour to Lourdes, France with Iker and even if all of us in the group had been there before, he was able to make us see and learn new things about the place. Iker planned the day perfectly for us, bringing us to Lourdes early in the day, before all the crowds came in. While he did stay with us for part of the time, he also gave us private time to do our own religious devotions. We had a lovely time in Lourdes and better appreciated the visit, thanks to Iker's thoughtfulness and experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very very much again for your reviews! Best wishes Iker

Iker was an engaging, enthusiastic and warm hearted guide. He freely shared the stories, beliefs and myths about each part of Lourdes we visited. He knew when to let us be alone and patiently waited for us outside each chapel or sanctuary. We highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much to both of you for your review!! Best wishes Iker

We had a most wonderful tour to Lourdes from San Sebastián Spain. But without doubt what made this special tour so effortless and enjoyable was our guide Iker. He was most accommodating, patient , amiable and eager to make this tour most memorable for us and help us in any way he could. He was also quick to accommodate when we had to make some changes due to the weather. What was most commendable was his utmost care and genuine efforts to ensure that we accomplished all that we intended to do. Thanks Iker

Iker is a great tour guide! He was punctual, informative and genuinely caring that we had a great experience. At the sanctuary he was informative and stepped back and gave me and my family the time to sit and pray. I would highly recommend Iker and I will use him again during the next visit to San Sebastian. Thank you Iker!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ivonne, thank you very much for your review! I hope to see you again back in San Sebastian. Best regards Iker

I am so grateful I had such an amazing experience going to Lourdes, France all because of my local guide Iker. He was very prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and energetic, making sure he answered all my questions and that he showed me everything I wanted to see and do. The tours are on the expensive side, but it was well worth it.
