Lourdes Sanctuary and castle small group tour, lunch included

By Local Experts Tours
About
Visit the world famous Sanctuary of Lourdes on a day full of spirituality. After touring the roads where the Pyrenees are visible, the small mountain town of Lourdes will surprise you with its varied experiences. The castle of Lourdes (Chateau Fort) is visited as the beginning of the arrival in the village, before accessing the Sanctuary. Crossing the door of Saint Michel, with the underground basilica of Pio X and the chapel of Saint Joseph at our side, the Coronado Virgin will receive us as a prelude to the Basilica of Notre Dame and the crypt of the Immaculate Conception to reach the cave where the Virgin appeared before Bernadette Soubirous in 1858. The houses where Bernadette was born and grew up are also very close from the Basilica and are visible as well.

          Just go!
          Great way to try different pinxtos/Spanish wines/cider. Guide was engaging and informative. We went to 5 bars & had tomato/artichoke salad with cider, prawn/spicy tomato/pepper sauce on bruschetta with white wine, oxtail stew with red wine, cod in a sauce with local white wine & steak kebab with rioja red wine. All were delicious, tour nicely paced,10 people including us, great meeting other travellers, I was a great group & great evening.. Recommend doing your 1st night in San Sebastián

          Great tour of the French Basque area
          Our guide was very knowledgeable, not only about our destinations but about San Sebastián and the Basque history as well. He was charming, engaging and insured we had a fun and enjoyable time. Loved the three seaside towns we visited. Overall a great tour.

          A Spanish language tour, a language I don't speak.
          Unfortunately I do not speak Spanish or Basque and the tour to the farm/factory was all in those two languages so the film shown at the farm was incomprehensible to me. The guide/driver did speak English but he could not devote his time to me or speak over the commentary on the film. The Idiazabal is sheep's cheese and un-pasteurised so I didn't think I could bring it back into the UK but in this I was wrong I could have brought some home for personal use, the samples I had at the farm were delicious, I'm sorry I did not buy some. The tourist office who sold me the tour were confused when I returned to them to tell them about the tour they apparently thought the tour would be in English, clearly they did not know what they had sold me! The tour started at a lookout but it was raining and the view was obscured by the low cloud and heavy rainfall. We were exceptionally lucky to see a heard of sheep being driven up to the hills for the summer, this occurs at the start of May, shepherd leading and Basque sheep dog at the rear of the flock.

          The tour was wonderful with a good guide and a delicious meal with great Rioja wine . The second winery Tritium made the trip with Ari our guide very special and rememberable.

          Ask for Felix, el chofer formidable( the formitable driver). I swear, he must have been an F-1 driver)
          This is a great tour best taken from Bilbao. Why? Because it is a two-hour F-1 type drive (ask for Felix) each way from San Sebastian. Two vinyards with ancient histories and great red wines.

          Five star tour
          This was an amazing tour, full of beauty, good food, good wine and great people. The tour guide was amazing with his knowledge, driving and congeniality. He took us to an amazing restaurant with amazing food. We even caused him a delay at the first winery because of placing an order there. Would encourage anyone to take this tour, it was wonderful and the countryside going through was beautiful!! ]

          Delicious Evening!
          Had a really great evening with our guide Fabian. The food and paired wines he chose were all excellent choices. As a solo traveler this was the perfect trip to join and I would highly recommend it.

          Great tour, great guide
          The tour was so much fun even in pouring rain. The winery was also great and we learned a lot. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and offered us several great recommendations after the tour ended to continue our adventure.
