We were picked up at our hotel very punctually. Sebastian was a great guide, funny and well-informed. His English is very good. The scenery en route was gorgeous (road is curvy, don't overeat before getting on the bus!). Oñati has a great little place to buy local chocolate, and the sanctuary of Arantzazu is totally different from any other basilica you have seen, look it up to see photos and the work of famous Basque artists like Chillida and Basterretxea. We were a group of 10, plus two others. The minibus was very clean and comfortable.
This tour was hectic but fantastic, Thanks to Yon the tour guide. he mixed the serious culture with the comical to perfection.(Jon, Maite Zaitut ) Also all the drivers were very patient, and I have now got an adopted brother. On a slightly sour note I booked it on the internet that said after each days activity, B L D and because it did not give an option to include food. I took it for granted it was included. No it wasn't .My spending was seriously curtailed. Even so, I would not have missed it for anything
nice, helpful communication online that responded to our individual requests. friendly, competent, courteous tour guide (stefan), interesting route, good hotels. Many thanks and kind regards
The tour was also inspiring, but the guide was fun. On the English tour, I had a meaningful time interacting with people from other four countries.
