A long overdue review We joined a few of Jon's private tours in early October (The Basque Country, Rioja Wine Trail and San Sebastian Pinxtos crawl). Words cannot explain the amazing experience we had - Jon is an exceptional tour guide - professional, knowledgable and most importantly, we have become friends after the tour! He has an unbelievable knowledge of... More

Compelled to go back here after a great experience touring the French Basque Coast with Jon this June past. I let him arranged my itinerary as my schedule was flexible. First day was spent hiking Mt. Ernio and the rest was spent on St. Ignatius Basilica and coastal stops of Zumaia and Getaria with a couple of Txacoli vineyards by... More

Andoni was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the region and had excellent suggestions. He was gracious and friendly and a pleasure to spend time with. We toured San Sebastian, Hondarribia, St. Jean du luc and Biarritz. He hiked with us on a beautiful 7 mile section of the Camino de Santiago. I highly recommend Basque Tours... More

Jon is the best tour guide around in San Sebastian area. We did a comprehensive tour with Jon to the Guggenheim museum in Bilboa and to the wine region of Rioja with Guernica. He is so knowledgeable as he is from the area and loves to share his enthusiasm for life in the Basque region. We will miss him and... More

This review is overdue. Six of us spent a week just outside of San Sebastian in Septmeber, renting a lovely house and arranged for two private tours with Basque Tours. We spent a day doing the Basque Coast and Countryside tour which was a real pleasure, because Jon took us to some remoter regions in the Basque mountain area, that... More

Jon is both knowledgable and engaging. Used him twice and each trip was unique and special. His personalized touches make for a memorable experience. Would love to go back to Rioja with him in the future. Would recommend him highly

WOW … what an amazing experience from one of the most accommodating, professional companies I have ever dealt with. Our party of 3 females wanted to travel to Northern Spain and Southern France for 7 days with our focus being to stay 1 night in the Monestary in Leyre and 3 nights in Lourdes France. On contacting Jon, it was... More

We signed on for the Pintxo Tour and a modified Basque Wine & Cheese Tour. The owner, Jon, was happy to change the Wine & Cheese tour to suit us, since we wanted to spend more time in Getaria and visit the Balenciaga Museum. Andoni was our guide for both tours, and didn't disappoint. Andoni has a very refined palate... More

Andoni was our guide for 4 days through the spellbinding Basque territory. He is the best tour guide you could wish for! He was friendly, reliable and professional every second of the way. We were a group of 3 people, differing in age and interests. Incredibly, he was intuitive, attentive and accommodating to all of us. My mother got tired... More

Basque Tours was the highlight of our trip and a great way to see all that the Basque Country has to offer. My husband and I booked the French countryside day trip during our 3 day stay in San Sebastián while on our honeymoon. We booked the trip through their website and we immediately received friendly customer service that made... More
