We did Wine Tour, Coastal Tour and Pinxto Tour using Basque Tours Co. and had Jon for 2 of the tours and Andoni for our wine tour! These guys are great! Jon's passion for the Basque region comes through in his narrative of history, culture and personal pride as he shows you parts of San Sebastian that would be difficult... More

Our short stay in Sans Sebastion was made so special and easy with Jon Galdos from Basque tours. . From the ease of booking and the quick response to our questions this part of our trip was destined to be amazing. Jon and Andoni lived up to our expectations and more in terms of the personal service and ease that... More

We never would have explored the mountains or coastline outside of San Sebastian, if not for our amazing tour with Jon Galdos! He picked us up at our hotel in S. Sebastian, and drove through the beautiful valleys of the Basque region up to Mt. Ernio. (We wish we'd also done a hiking tour--which he offers as well--up to the... More

We visited San Sebastian in mid July. Jon was so helpful with his immediate email responses to my initial inquiries, gave leads on where to find an apartment to stay while in San Sebastian and crafted a perfect itinerary for our family. We only had three nights in San Sebastian but we wanted to see the Basque countryside. As Jon... More

This was a great experience all around from beginning to end. We booked a wine tour to Rioja for 6 people and booking and communicating with Jon Galdos was simple and easy, and he was very responsive considering the time difference (we were booking from the US). Our driver the day of the tour, Andoni, was also great and very... More

We enjoyed two private tours with Andoni as our guide. He was brilliant! Very easy to have a conversation with as he spoke very good English and a wealth of local knowledge which he was pleased to share. We visited during a very busy festive week and am sure we would not of eaten such great food without Andoni's help... More

We had a fantastic time with Jon, who picked us up in Bilbao and took us to wonderful wineries in the Rioja region, introduced us to winemakers, and shared his excellent knowledge of the region. He dropped us in San Sebastián. We highly recommend Jon and Basque Tours!

We booked an evening tour with Jon Galdos from Basque Tours as our final event before leaving San Sebastian. We were absolutely delighted with what Jon then took us through. We visited some of the best pintxo bars and were treated to some absolutely delicious food and wine chosen by Jon. A couple of nights earlier we had dinner at... More

Jon and his team are wonderful, thoughtful guides with lots of great information and a willingness to adapt to weather, children, etc. We toured San Juan de la Luz, Biarritz, Rhune on day and did a beautiful hike from Zumaia another with a fun stop at towns and beaches along the way. We also did a day trip to Pamplona.... More

Our tour guide Andoni was SUPERB. He was really eager to show us around and we could really tell that he truly loves San Sebastian. He gave us a very thorough explanation of the history as well as the famous gastronomic culture. I am in love with San Sebastian, and I will certainly come back in near future.
