Date: Dec 17/19

Iker knows so many interesting things not just about Spain but all over the world which was impressive. He was sensitive to the group dynamics and made necessary changes to the agenda when required. He knows food and trust me when i say he can recommend a restaurant it is the truth he knows where to eat. I enjoyed being shown his cooking club and the explanations around culture and food. The history of the Basque region was something i knew nothing about and i was amazed at how long it has existed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you along the Basque Country during 4 days. Best regards from San Sebastian Iker B

Iker was THE best tour guide for San Sebastian we could have hoped for! He is Basque for many generations and his knowledge and love of his Basque Country shines through. Although it was a Pintxos tour I felt that we got much more than that. He also loves to cook so he took us to the Mercado and we tasted cheeses and looked at Jamon Iberico. Then we went to more Pintxos bars that I could keep track of. Staying at each just long enough for us to take their speciality: cider, grilled shrimp, beef cheek

We have traveled extensively and the day with Iker was one of our best. He is a wealth of knowledge and very interested in what we want to do. We only booked one day with him...our mistake. We hope we get to spend more time with him on our next trip.

Iker did a great job combining the history of the Basque region and people with the tastes of San Sebastian. He brought us terrific pinxtos and local drinks in places we may not have otherwise noticed, taught us traditions that we wouldn't have otherwise understood, and brought us to the Men's Cooking Club to connect with its long history and story. My mother doesn't have the best mobility, and he was very thoughtful of her needs and kind overall. We all had a wonderful evening!

Inker was an excellent guide. Passionate and extremely knowledgeable about Basque culture, history, and cuisine. He gave us an excellent summary of San Sebastian's history. A highlight was a lunch of pintxos which was infinitely better than what we had tried on our own! A tour of the Mercados revealed his depth knowledge of the food and as well as how well he is known and respected.

Iker is extremly knowledgeable and enthusuastically shares it with you. If you like out of the way personal experiences he is an excellent choice. He will share the treasures of his country with you. In the short one day tour of wine country we were able to see the country side, get an opportunity to learn about the wines and the way they are evaluated as well as taste wines that are only available in La Rioja. Thank you for a gret tour.

Iker was the ideal guide!!! Personable and extremely knowledgeable, he made the Guggenheim come to life as he explained and showed all the symbolism involved in creating this remarkable building. Then he led us inside and gave us insight into the important exhibits to be seen. It would not have been the same experience without his expert guidance. Then he shifted gears completely to give us a walking tour of the city. I would highly recommend Iker to anyone who wants a perfect day in Bilbao!!!!

Iker es una persona encantadora, conversadora y muy vasto en su conocimiento. Siempre puntual y se acomodo a nuestros gustos, nos llevo a sitios q no hubiéramos visto sin él. Ademas los mejores PINTXOS que comimos. Nos gusto tanto que hicimos al día siguiente otro tour con él. 100 % recomendado.

This was our third and regrettably last tour with Iker. He took us to wonderful wineries and as on all three tours, showed us special less populated places for good views or interesting experiences. Our three days with Iker were definitely the highlight of our family trip.

This was our second of three tours with Iker and once again was amazing. As the weather was bad to start he rearranged our route to give us the best experience. It cleared up beautifully and our amended itinerary proved to be even better than what was planned. We also got to know Iker better and he is so accommodating and pleasant we loved every moment.

Thank you Iker for the memorable and informational tour of San Sebastian. We are impressed with all the information you provided us with. You filled in many informational gaps of San Sebastian, my Father's Birthplace. I was given very little information of his time in San Sebastian. I know he was a Basque Farmer and fled during the Franco Revolution. I met several veterans who had remembered the fleeing of SB Farmers. I was told to look up the name Chivy as a possible name change. The Mair Group

Iker was great. He was on time, new the city inside and out, and was flexible about what we wanted to see and experience. Iker was truly a local in the know on where to go, eat and see. We plan on coming back to San Sebastian and will use Iker for some local trekking. Mike Holihan
