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.

We had a wonderful time with Jon Galdos visiting the Rioja region. Jon picked us up in Bilbao and had scheduled a wonderful visit to the wineries. We also had lunch and visited a small town. It was an incredible experience for our family of 4. I highly recommend Jon and Basque Tours!

We recently went to San Sebastian and Rioja for a ten day family trip. I had connected with Jon Galdos through Trip Advisor after reading all the great reviews. Our family of five including three kids ages 18, 21 and 22 had a wonderful experience with Jon. We did the Mt. Ernio hike as well as the Biarritz tour. Both... More

We did the Biarritz tour. What a great tour, very professional and friendly. We hardly noticed the poor weather as umbrellas were provided and we were dropped off and collected from convenient locations. Aldoni shared a wealth of information and it is evident he is passionate about the area. We were so impressed with his English and his willingness to... More

We had arrived in San Sebastian and had not really done much research about what to do, so I went on Trip Advisor and search for private tours. John's name came up immediately. I requested to be contacted and he called me within 5 minutes and on short notice (we gave him 2 days) was able to accomodate us on... More

Jon was very professional from the beginning, answering e-mail promptly and helping us choose the right tour. He picked us up from our AirBNB residence in San Sebastian (and even helped us when we accidentally locked our key inside on our way out). He is very knowledgeable of basque country and their vineyards, and we learned a lot. We got... More

We have gone on the Basque Country private tours for two years in a row. Last year we enjoyed it so much that we brought back more of our family to go on the tour this year. Jon is the best guide you could find. He is not only knowledgable in the geographical area and history, but is able to... More
