It was interesting tour, but from our view you are covering too many cities and there are not much time to see each city. I thing Should be more time for Biarittz and San Sebastian. Hondariba and Saint De Luz can be excluded from the tour. Also big thanks to guide, he was very helpfull.

Worth to go.

Our guide Stefan is very good. He organize everything perfect and give sufficient info. Our driver Florin was also good. No excitement during driving. I advice to extend the tour one hour more, and give more free time at Biarritz and San Sebastian.
