Great way to see the Basque region

This tour packs a lot in, and the in between coach travel bits are just as interesting. Our guide was excellent , dealing proficiently with a dual Spanish and English understanding audience. Pick up was as notified - all comms in advance were clear and in good time. The coach was modern and we felt safe on the many winding mountain roads. To pack in everything was a feat in itself - Vitoria quick tour, Salt springs tour, Quick Ordana stop, lunch in a beautiful converted nunnery, and crossing the Vizcaya Transporter bridge. Highly recommended

A nice visit to Basque towns

We had a great time during this tour. We got to see some of the Northern Spain landscape. The guide (Estephan) was very good and knowledgeable. Everything was on time. I wish we could stay more time in the small towns. The salt valley is nice but I think the tour (one hour) is too long.

Very didactic and very beautiful.

It was an excursion to frame, everything that was offered to us was fulfilled and more The companions of excursion made unforgettable since they respected the schedules, the Gia and driver a 10. Really what took me a pleasant memory.

Smart bike Excursion. One way and back by underground. Excellent guide, good bike, bottle of water. The 5 hours were perfect. No steep climbs.

Fabulous restaurant near Biskia In an old Nun convent. I bet of over sell on the “see” part of the trip. Mainly interior mountain areas.
