Jonathon at All Ways Spain put together a tour of the Basque country for us (my wife, her sister and myself). We had previously had a wonderful week in Andalusia with him a couple of years earlier.
On this occasion, he assigned Inaki to look after us. All Ways Spain go out of their way to help choose an itinerary and meet any special requests you have, they look after all the details like hotels and transfers and provide a very personalized service.
On our week long trip, there were many highlights but for me the best were a tour of the Rioja country with private visits to wonderful local vineyards, the standout being a tour of a small family run boutique winery. Ending the day by sampling the wine and a few local delicacies with the proprietor and his father (with Inaki interpreting) as the sun went down was unforgettable.
But the best was kept for our last day - a visit to five superb pintxos bars in the old part of San Sebastian. The quality and gastronomic artistry of the bars we were taken to was beyond description but the final delight of cheesecake and Pedro Ximenez at the last of the bars was a taste sensation.
Thank you Jonathon for putting together a fantastic, trouble free itinerary for us....again. And thank you Inaki for a wonderful week of fun, friendship and Basque culture.
This is the best way to see Spain - with local knowledgeable guides and away from the usual tourist traps.
We highly recommend Jonathon and the team at AWS.
