When it says "Day trip to San Sebastián and Biarritz", then Biarritz should not suddenly be missing. This is a sham pack! There was a lot of information and emails before the trip. But only mentioning on the bus and on the way that Biarritz is not being approached because of Corona is not possible at all. Corona has been around for over two years. Then the tour has to be called something else. The guide Stefan, on the other hand, was wonderful and tried to make the best of the situation, for which he was the least able, with vigor, enthusiasm and a lot of knowledge. Very considerate, very concerned about the group, with lots of history and in top Spanish and English. The cancellation of Biarritz left more time to visit San Sebastián and Hondarribia, which was good. For the lunch break, Stefan recommended good places to eat in San Sebastián. Thanks to guide Stefan, the day tour was still a successful Sunday, although of course the visit to Biarritz was missing.

A superb full day with the opportunity to see more of the Basque Country. Our trip to San Sebastian, Hondurabia and Gitaria contained many nice parts. A beautiful nature, the bus took us along the coastal road, nice towns with ancient origins. Beautiful viewpoints. Also space for some personal time. Our guide Stephane was amazingly talented and good. Handled the English for us perfectly and alternated for the Spanish speakers. A successful day!!

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.
