Best guide we've ever had!
Oct 2019
We spent a wonderful day with Iker touring the French basque country. Because the weather wasn't favorable to going up into the mountains, he altered the itinerary to make sure we really got a feel for the culture, terrain and food. His knowledge of the region is extraordinary and he shares it in a very entertaining way. We hope we get to return to the area and engage Iker again.

Superb day trip from San Sebastian
Oct 2019
My friend and I did a day trip enjoying the beauty of the northern Basque region and Spanish & French Pyrenees and French coastal towns with Iker, our guide. Iker was very knowledgeable and it was evident he has such a passion for what he does and for the Basque region. From teaching us how to say some of useful words in Euskara - the local language (it definitely is NOT Spanish!) to the wealth of knowledge about the region with several wonderful stops to explore and have a wonderful lunch......it was definitely a fun day tour. I would highly recommend Iker as a guide. He told us about his cooking tours and that would definitely be on my list for my next visit. Until then, for those of you traveling to the beautiful Basque region, book your tour(s) with Iker. You will not be disappointed!

An Excellent Day Out
May 2019 • Couples
It's rare to find a guide with such passion for, and depth of knowledge of his subject, in this case being all things Euskadi. The very personable Mikel took us through the postcard villages of the Pyrenees while giving us a solid background in Basque culture, food, wine, agriculture, history and of course, politics. Frequent stops to stretch the legs provided a chance to experience these places up close. An excellent lunch in Espelette punctuated the day.

Mikel's further suggestions as what to eat/drink/visit in and around Donostia proved to be spot on and were much appreciated.

Booking directly with the very helpful Iker was drama free. As an aside, it was a pleasant surprise to find a company with such a relaxed cancellation policy.
