It's good that the excursion schedule wasn't very strict: we could ask to spend more time somewhere or to stop somewhere for taking pictures at some picturesque place that was not in the plan.
We liked the idea of crossing the border in two different ways (by car and by boat). We also enjoyed beatiful viewpoints and landscapes of Basque Country, and of course our guide telling a lot of stories. We didn't get bored for a single minute of this journey!
A very full day. Everything well worth seeing. The guide was marvellous, cheerful, full of knowledge and happy to answer all questions.
Great Tour! We did the visit in the opposite direction of what was presented by Viator, but that was much better. The guide was excellent, interesting ,funny and relaxed. The high point was San Sebastián, beautiful city!
I really enjoyed the tour a lot. It was intensive but we saw fantastic views of the Cantabrian Sea, beautiful small towns and landscape. The guide - Jon, was very friendly and made it a great day for all of us.
A really good tour, could have spent more time in Biarritz but we had rain all day so maybe a good thing.
This is a must do tour when you are in the Basque Country. John was amazing, with a very friendly personality. If I do a tour again in this region, I will request for him personally. We saw some of the most amazing views one could ever imagine. The weather was also on our side. I highly recommend this tour.
Everything was great except the weather which was awful. Totally out of your control.
The trip was wonderful but unfortunately it rained. Nevertheless the guide was excellent and it was well worth going.
It was an amazing experience specially when you have a nice,humorous but professional guide(Joan) to lead you .

A lovely day despite the awful weather! the guide was knowledgable, and although quite a rushed day and pouring rain we saw all we wanted, and the best afternoon views over San Sebastian from high above and at last sunshine, as if to show the stunning beauty of the beautiful crescent beach.
Would highly recommend, even in cold and windy weather. A great way to see this region in a short amount of time. Very informative.
Delightful tour guide, beautiful scenery ....what more is there to say. We love everything about Basque Country...will return again soon.
Excellent Guide, Fabulous countryside, Comfortable transportation,
Our trip was first class. Gorca, our guide, collected us punctually at 9am from our hotel. We travelled in a luxury mini van with three others. Gorca was incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent driver. The scenery was superb and we were given plenty of time to explore the towns on our own. The professionalism of our guide turned a good day out into an excellent day out.
We had a wonderful day. The guides were excellent. The places visited were really interesting. We highly recommend this tour.
An interesting trip to San Sebastian and Biarritz. San Sebastian turned out to be the most beautiful and the most interesting of the two. The Lunch break in Hondarribia was also a pleasant surprise. The guide was knowledgeable and very enthusiastic.
Excellent tour taking in the highlights of Biarritz, St Jean de luz and San Sebastian. Our guide Gary was genuinely friendly. He spiced up the tour with instructive comments and anecdotes on the region's history and current events. The tour participants were mostly Iberian but he ensured that english speakers (only 4 of us in a full bus) weren't short-changed. He even accompanied us on our short walks around the tour sites.
the guide's english was not as strong as it should be to effectively communicate
Biarritz and San Sebastian are really so awesome to visit. The clear blue seas are superb! Seafood and wine are great. You should try pintxos, different kind of foods in small portions on a stick. We would love to go back. Our guide was great.
I really enjoyed seeing Biarritz and the small towns before San Sebastian. I had expected to eat in San Sebastian and had researched it for a place but we didn't get to to eat there so the advertising needs to not say lunch there as it is misleading. John was very enthusaitic but a bit hard to understand at times since it was so fast. Loved the little beach town and would so this again. Well organized.
This tour was excellent, but a little too jam packed. There was no free time other than 45 minutes to have lunch. It would have been nice to drop our first stop and have a little time on our own in Biarritz and San Sebastian.. No coffee nor toilet stops were offered and luch was very late - around 3. Then off to San Sebastian which was very rushed. Still very worthwhile and the scenery will not disappoint..
this was the first time to spain for our friends and the trip we took covered all the bases. I loved the views and personal insight our guide had. This was not a tour for those wanting museum stops or tours of histgorical sites. Overall, the small bus was wonderful with a nice driver and the tour was well worth the money.
