It was an interesting and informed tour. Our guide was super punctual, very friendly and accommodating. He shared a lot of information about the Basque Country on the bus. In Biarritz and San Sebastián we had enough time to get an overview. In each city he drove us to a vantage point where we could take nice photos. Was worth it!!
