We did 4 days of private day tours with Basque Tours in and around San Sebastian. We had just finished a tour with a group through Turkey and the contrast was stark. No waiting for people to arrive all the time, a schedule that could be varied and best of all a tour guide who was passionate about what he... More

During a recent stay in San Sebastian, we hired Jon for a full-day tour of Rioja wine country. It was a terrific, personalized experience (just Jon and our group of 4 for the entire day). Jon was phenomenal: Friendly and warm and super knowledgeable, whether walking us through a wine tasting, answering questions about Basque history, or teaching us a... More

Jon's tour through Basque country vineyards was perfect. Jon was down to earth, really knowledgeable about the region and its wines, and relaxed enough to make us all realize we were still on vacation. We spent all day with him and didn't get tired or bored at any point. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Jon at Basque Tours organized a great day for us touring vineyards in Rioja and providing 5 tastings. Jon was so easy to talk to, answered all of our questions, and seems to know a bit about everything in the region. He was flexible to our needs, provided clean transportation and provided information without being preachy or overly educational. He... More

Jon organized 3 great days. We started in Biarritz, FR, ended in San Sebastian, and explored both the French & Spanish sides of Basque Country. Jon was friendly, knowledgeable and planned a great tour. Guggenheim was of course amazing, but we combined that with visits to a small fishing village, Old Town Bilbao, etc. Certainly, a highlight was his 'inside... More

I am seconding our daughter's review (see below) of our wonderful tour of the Cantabrian cave region and the very charming Santillana del Mar. I would also like to add that Jon made some excellent restaurant reservations for us in Bilbao and provided my husband with an outstanding list of high-end Riojas that he has since added to our cellar....

Jon at Basque Tours organized a great tour of Cantabria's cave region for us, even though it was a bit outside his usual area of expertise. We went to the Altamira Cave museum, had lunch and walked around in picturesque Santillana del Mar, and then got to head inside an actual cave with Paleolithic art at the El Castillo cave.... More

Jon was a fantastic tour guide. We spent the evening with him during as part of a combination city and pintxo tour. Jon was very receptive to the types of food we liked and dint like. He adjusted the tour as we went to make it as custom as possible. This is a true experience you cant miss.

We can only reinforce the glowing reviews received by Basque Tours. We spent three full days with Jon. We couldn't ask for a more charming, knowledgable, witty and gracious guide. We fully enjoyed all three days but the highlight for us was the day we hiked to the top of Mount Ernio with its incredible views and then followed by... More

My husband and I went on a tour of the French Basque countryside with Andoni for a day and it was really fun! We have done private tours in several other countries but this one was the best by far. Andoni was very comfortable and accommodating without a strict time schedule so we could stop and have a beer when... More
