    I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Jani was an excellent guide, Basque from Bilbao who helped me understand the local history and traditions and culinary specialties. The drive was beautiful and we spent time in a number of lovely locations, with the highlight being lunch in Gertaria at The May Flower restaurant. I had the grilled monkfish paired with txakoli wine, which was superb. I highly recommend Jani and this tour.

    My family and I have nothing but great things to say about our experience with Basque Guides (5 day tour)! Our group of 6 ranged in age from 44 - 82. Juan was our guide for 4 days (San Sebastián, French Basque Country, Bilbao, La Rioja), and Martin was our guide for our final tour in Pamplona. Here of the highlights of why we loved the tour so much:

    Guides - these gentlemen clearly love their jobs and focused on educating us about the true Basque Country, rather than taking us to stupid tourist traps. Juan has advanced degrees in food & wine, while Martin has a degree in anthropology. They were a wealth of knowledge! We especially enjoyed hearing funny stories about Juan's "extremely Basque" mother! We saw tons of things each day, yet never felt rushed. The guides were very good about tailoring the pace of the tour to the group.

    Food - 5 stars. Phenomenally delicious. Nothing touristy. We are still talking about the lamb chuletas we ate in La Rioja. The pintxos we ate in San Sebastián were incredible.

    Transportation - Excellent. Clean and well-maintained Mercedes-Benz vans. Drivers were very safe.

    Itinerary - every day offered something new and a different view of the Basque Country. We also noticed that the tour alternated between more "active" days and more relaxing days, which worked well for the more senior members of our group.

    We were also able to meet Iker, the owner, who was an absolute delight and gave us a great recommendation for dinner in San Sebastián.

    I would love to return to the Basque Country and will definitely give Iker a call when we are ready for more tours!

    Great place. Real world, not like a lot of European cities which are a bit ‘Disney’. We did a food tour & a bicycle tour, both of which taken by local Basque guides. Brilliant and the grub fantastic!

    An unqualified recommendation. Ander is among the very best guides you could ever hope for. He was born and raised in Basque Country (San Sebastian). He is very friendly, courteous, fun (yet extremely professional), articulate (speaks 5 languages fluently and articulately, including English), extremely knowledgeable of the area, history, culture, best sights, restaurants, bars (Pintxos), etc. We had last minute itinerary changes and he graciously accommodated our needs. My wife and I were very interested in the Basque history, culture and sights (I have distant ancestors from the Basque country) and he exceeded our highest hopes & expectations. He chauffeured us in a new Mercedes van which was very comfortable. We experienced our tour in every way: sights, sounds, food, culture, history... extraordinary for 1 day. I am certain there could not have been a better gentleman to guide us through our day in the Basque Country. When he dropped us off, we felt like we were saying good bye to a member of our extended family.
    ESKERRIK ASKO ANDER!!!

    After several mishaps that left us without a rental car we were devastated that we were not going to see most of the things on our itinerary.
    Baskme to the rescue! I booked a severely last minute tour to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and it did not disappoint. Our local guide Jaime was what I’d call a kindred spirit- nature loving, warm and wonderful, and engrossingly knowledgeable - He subtly assessed what we were into (which was more history and culture as opposed to being GOT fans) so he showed us some extra things that blew our minds. Was absolutely the best day of our trip and I’m glad we saved it for last. Special memories not soon forgotten indeed. Eskerrik asko Jaime!

    We thought we were joining a tour group of about half a dozen people but it turned out to be a private tour with just my mother and myself - what a pleasant surprise!

    The scenery of the Basque Coast was just breathtaking. It was worth visiting there whether one had watched Game of Thrones or not.

    Our guide Ander was wonderful, very friendly and considerate. It felt like being guided by a knowledgeable local friend. It was very interesting learning about the traditions, history and culture of the Basque country from Ander. Knowing more about both the land (and the sea) and the people really made the trip so much more meaningful and memorable.

    Ander's colleague, Nina, was also amazingly kind. She gave us a detailed list of pintxo bars that they liked, as well as suggestions of pintxos and drinks, which were truly great recommendations.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in San Sebastián and this tour was the highlight of our entire trip. We hope to return to the Basque Country in the future and explore the region further with Nina and Ander.

    This tour was one of our highlights of our trip. Ernes our guide offers more than your average tour. He curates the experience based on your needs and interests and gives you an incredible amount of information and historical context about the places you go to. He also makes the trip a lot of fun! We came out of this experience feeling more knowledgeable about Txakoli and wine in general, and blown away by the views and by the seafood lunch in Getaria. Highly recommend booking this tour or any tours with Iskunasi!

    My husband and I greatly enjoyed this fun adventure, it broadened the horizon of San Sebastián, and showed the beauty of the area. We were promptly picked up at our hotel by a very courteous and knowledgeable tourist guide, Borja, to start our adventure. We stopped at places with beautiful beaches, including a beach where Scenes from Game of Thrown was filmed, these views were spectacular! The vineyard visit with wine tasting was excellent. We walked around picturesque costal towns and had lunch at the Mayflower, a beachfront restaurant and had delicious grill fish! Our return trip to San Sebastián was through the mountains again with outstanding views. We highly recommend the tour!

    We are recently back from a vacation in Spain and our 3 days of touring San Sebastián and Basque Country with Andoni of Baskme tours was not only the highlight of this trip but every trip we have ever taken. If you are considering a visit, do yourself a favor and reach out to Andoni. From our first email communication, Andoni was a pleasure to work with, clearly knowledgeable about the region but also curious about our interests and needs, and passionate about planing a trip that would satisfy our 3 generational group. Before even meeting us, Andoni helped arrange accommodations and reservations and all of his ideas proved to be perfection. When we met him on arrival, our instinct to trust him with our visit was not only validated but exceeded our expectations. We did 3 tours with Baskme: San Sebastián and Pixto, Countryside and Coast and Bay of Biscay. Andoni shared his extensive knowledge of the region’s fascinating history with enthusiasm, unveiled the beauty of the region with excitement, and introduced us to the culinary delights at each stop with joy. He is kind, going above and beyond for us in too many ways and he is personable and funny, making the 3 days we spent together feel like a visit with a dear friend. We can’t wait to return and see our now “old friend”again. Andoni…”Wow, Wow, Wow”! Thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

    Julen is an amazing guide and knows all the rich history of the Basque Country. My partner and I were looking for an excursion/day trip in the Basque Country that centered around food, wine, meeting locals, and learning about the life of the folks that live in this beautiful area, and that’s what Julen delivered, plus more!

    I really appreciated how Julen was incredibly flexible, and we collaborated on the vibe throughout the day!

    As a person, Julen is incredibly kind, outgoing, and popular! He knew so many people and introduced us to the locals. He was super responsible (while we drank like fish), and we felt super safe and comfortable hanging out with him all day!

    Do it! Book a day with Julen! You won’t regret it!

    Best,
    Mary & Greg
