It is my pleasure to write a review for Jani of Basque Tours. Our group of 5 couples form Vancouver were treated to the most delightful and delicious pintxos and wine tour imaginable hosted by Jani. It is easy to understand why she and her husband Jon have been multi year winners of Certificate of Excellence and Tour Guide Awards.
Jani is a warm, friendly and highly knowledgeable tour guide. She met a precisely at noon to start our five restaurant tour. Jani carefully chose restaurants that provided an absolutely delicious variety of pintxos that San Sebastian is famous for the world over. As well, she chose wines that beautifully paired with our food sending us to the upper stratosphere of savory heaven! Jani pays attention to detail. By example, early in our tour she called ahead to the famous, La Vina Restaurant, our final stop, to reserve 10 pieces of cheesecake for which they are famous the world over. We discovered why they run out of this dessert as this was simply the best ever cheese cake....not to be missed.
As a life long, proud resident of San Sebastian, Jani has a remarkable working knowledge of the history of the sites and sounds of Basque region. She shared a wealth of information that added to our amazing culinary experience. An unexpected but welcomed bonus!.
Sadly, we had to say farewell to Jani. We all agreed she made us feel so welcome and well taken care of to the point we felt we have a made a new and dear friend. We thank her for an amazingly delicious, and wonderful experience we will never forget! I would more than highly recommend Jani and Jon for the best possible experience in beautiful San Sebastian.
