This is a trip that must NOT be missed!!! Ander and Nina were our guides. They picked us up at our hotel in a very comfortable car, and took us into the countryside. We visited amazingly quaint villages, walking the streets and visiting a local bakery where they treated us to txantxigorri a cookie with pork in it! and coffee. A lovely couple who by the end of the trip felt like family! Both Ander, who is a local and Nina, are well versed in the history of the Basque Country as well as everything San Sebastian. Had we known their depth of knowledge about everything Basque as well as being well traveled themselves, we probably would have booked them for the entire time we were
there. We loved this part of the world and hope to cross paths with Ander and Nina again either there or hopefully in our hometown one day!
This tour stands out as our favorite memory of visiting San Sebastian! Our guides, Nina and Ander, were fantastic! We had a lovely, sunny day to meander throughout the French Basque Countryside in a comfortable, luxury ride! The scenery was stunningly beautiful. We had wonderful photo opportunities. Nina and Ander are both very knowledgeable about all aspects the villages. They even treated us to a traditional Basque cake and coffee, which was totally delicious. Sites not seen by any bus tour. Totally recommend touring with our friends Nina and Ander. It's a bargain, DON'T PASS THIS ONE UP!!
I thought I was joining a small group tour but it turned out to be just me so I got all the attention of a personalized tour from a husband and wife team, Nina and her husband. I love to take photos and they brought me to the best spots for photography. They are extremely hospitable and generous. They even bought me coffee and lunch. Love the whole experience despite the rain. I hate to drive and this is a great way to see the French Basque Country since public transportation, even though not impossible, would be a hassle. Highly recommend it.
