I did a private pintxos tour with Erik in Bilbao. It was fantastic. We went around a variety of bars, some modern, some old, and had a drink and a pinxto at each one. Erik knew lots about Bilbao and knew a lot of the locals. It was an experience I never would have had alone. I would highly recommend a private tour with these guys, it’s worth every euro.

After the fantastic weekend we had last year cycling around the Basque Country we came back this year for a return tour! Taking on a different route to last, we were able to explore and ride more of the Basque Region, then into Navarra / Rioja, and finishing off in Bilbao - once again brilliantly hosted and organised by Erik. We will be back!

Back again for another amazing road bike trip organised by Basque Experiences and the incomparable Erik! Trip a perfect blend of beautiful quite back country roads rolling through the Rioja vineyards with a few Cat 1 climbs thrown in for a real challenge. The apres riding entertainment was also full on with Erik knowing the best bars and restaurants to refuel. I cannot recommend highly enough!

For my mother’s birthday my siblings and I recently booked a weekend trip with “Basque Experiences” and Erik was truly helpful and very knowledgeable about Northern Spain and the Rioja Region. Erik is able to communicate well in both Spanish and English thus a great organiser and tuned to our needs beautifully. We would definitely recommend “Basque Experiences” in order to get the most out of your trip!

We had the most fantastic Rioja wine tour with Erik. We visited two very different Bodegas and sampled beautiful wines. We then ate lunch at a lovely family run hotel where the food was great. Erik also advised us about where to stay, where to visit and which bars and restaurants to try out in Bilbao. He was highly professional, knowledgeable and great company. We couldn't recommend this experience with Erik highly enough. Thanks for such a brilliant day and fantastic memories!
