My wife and I did a private scenic tour with Anthony and had a really great day! We had originally hoped to do the "Wine and Cheese Tour" but the owner Jon, who couldn't have been nicer, called and told me that the cheese place was closed that day. He offered to combine two tours that included a wine tasting,... More

We called last minute with high hopes but limited expectations for a good tour as we had recently overpaid for a mediocre one. We just loved our guide, Andoni, who provided us us with maybe, the best tour we've ever taken. The wineries he chose were spectacular! Jon whipped it together in such a professional way, it exceeded our expectations... More

It was my first trip to Spain. My main destination was Barcelona for 6 days but I was indecisive to whether spend the remaining 4 days in Andalusia or in Northern Spain. I decided the later because I like small villages and local authentic food. I know that the movie Vicky Christina Barcelona had a scene in Oviedo. But I... More

We took the Pintxo tour and had a great night out. The guide was very knowledgeable about the scene and gave us some excellent recommendations for things to try afterwards.

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
