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.

Not sure I would recommend this trip. There seemed to be more time spent driving than enjoying the destinations. For example. we were given 5 minutes to spend in Biarritz and then loaded back into the van.

The tour was fine, giving us a chance to see the countryside north of Bilbao. Some good food, too. Personally, we would have preferred to stay in St. Jean-de-Luz for the whole day eating that great-looking seafood at all the outdoor restaurants.

I enjoyed the day and, our Guide was lovely, however, I (and my fellow travellers) felt that it was not worth the money paid- I recently paid less in Tunisia to visit Carthage, Sidi Bou Said and Tunis, with entry fees to all the sites included and lunch- there was only one entry fee on this trip and no lunch- it was basically a minibus trip to Biarritz and San Sebastian (not enough time there and it was the place we all wanted to see most) + a boat/ferry trip across a bay. I enjoyed it, however, was definitely over priced in my opinion (I've worked in the travel business for the best part of 15 yrs). Sorry!

I can sum up the experience in one word.................
PATHETIC...We rode the bus to Biarritz where we were given about 5 min on the clock...The guide wasn't the best either..We ended up travellling for 6 hrs in the bus..
