Discover the Basque Country with your private guide

Visit St Jean de Luz, a beautiful seaside resort and active fishing port not far from the Spanish border. The town center has a charming medieval background with a blend of Moorish and Spanish Andalusian architecture.
In the church, check out the splendid Baroque altar where Louis XIV and Marie-Thérèse of Spain were married in 1660.

Visit Ainhoa, classified among the 'most beautiful villages of France', an important stop on the pilgrim path to Santiago de Compostella.

Visit Espelette, a delightful village situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees, famous for its chilli peppers, wonderfully colourful.

Visit Hondarrabia, one of the most beautiful towns in the Basque Country. It is a colorful fishing village that is both rich in architecture as well as in gastronomy. It's a feast for the eyes and also for the stomach.

A Recent Review of this tour

Beatrice Martin is an excellent tour guide. I wanted to see Escot (small village) for genealogy reasons. Beatrice planned the entire trip. She researched my ancestor's family, found Escot family relations, who showed me my ancestor's home & church/cemetery. Met another relative whose grandfather was brother to my ancestor. Stop at Lindt factory, had lunch in Pau local restaurant.Beatrice gave me lifetime of memories/genealogy info. Beatrice is a wonderful person. Highly recommend Beatrice as a guide.
