About ToursByBasques Private Guided Tours
Private premium tours for those that look for something unique and different in their visit to the Basque Country, based on an Off-The-Beaten-Path philosophy (but of course, the "can't miss places" as well). Focused on private tours for visitors interested in our particular culture and way of life, I love to show the Basque way of life and my favorite places as a local insider.

No favorite, the whole trip was great. Mikel Provided us with the local perspective and more. We just asked for a few spots and he filled in the rest. It rained but didn’t dampen the activities. Enjoyed hearing about Basque traditions and home life.

This was one of the best days of our vacation! We were able to see things on this tour that we would of never been able to see on a group tour. Mikel was so fun to hang with and was patient with my need to shop! We loved the old town and so enjoyed the wine and pintxo tasting. I am craving more already! You wont be disappointed spending a day in Basque with Mikel. Worth every Penny, Pound or Euro!

We went on a winery tour with Mikel back in May to the Rioja Alavesa wine region. It was a full day tour to 3 wineries and with lunch and a short visit to the quaint old town of Laguardia. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and with Mikel's knowledge of the region, we were in good hands! The wineries we went to were all differing in styles and size so that gave us a great variety and taste profiles. My family of 5 (3 adult kids), greatly enjoyed this day trip to the wineries. If you come by the Bilbao/Rioja region, we highly recommend Mikel if you are looking for a friendly and experienced guide!

Mikel is great! This was our second time with him, as we had visited four years ago, too. We saw much of the old town, complete with local wines, vermouths, cidres, and pinxchos. He’s so knowledgeable and pleasant! It really amplified our understanding of the city and culture to experience it with him.

Mikel was the perfect guide for our one day trip in Bilbao. Although it was extremely hot and unusual weather condition for Bilbao, that does not scare Mikel to show us the best around the city and some of his favorite pintxos bars. Mikel is a very friendly person and it’s very easy to talk with him. He explained us very aspects of the Basque culture and architecture. It felt like the tour was made specially for us, because I am an "architect" :) We recommend Mikel 100% and are very excited to come back in other time of the year and meet him again. Time management of him was perfect!
