    The trip was worth it! Stefano was very helpful and introduced us to Basque culture and quisine with lots of good humour:)) really well chosen places to try the famous pintxos in San Sebastian! The visit to the cheese factory was a real treat - very educating and a possibility to try different kinds of cheese (smoked, 1-year, 6-year) and the local white wine. We also learnt about the cities we passed, the industry and major historical events.
