The tour was very well organized and we really liked our guide. The region is beautiful and the wines are very good. We enjoyed 2 tastings and a very nice lunch. We really enjoyed our day and highly recommend this tour.

Great experience! I would prefer to visit only three places, Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, and San Sebastián and spend more in these three beautiful cities.

We had a very nice trip and our guide, Inigo, was very helpful and explained many things very clearly in English.

Extraordinaria experiencia; nuestra guía Begonia muy conocedora, amable y considerada. Lo repito.

Very fun, good blend of food and drinks and culture.
