Great day for exploring Spain's wine country!

This was a really fun tour. We had a wonderful guide who gave us good information and made it very enjoyable. The wine tour they provided of a small boutique winery was exceptional. We also loved having some time on our own to explore these two marvelous towns and enjoy a very delicious lunch. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a general feel for the area in a one day span. It made us all want to return to the region and explore more.

Perfect excursion to get an impression of the Basque Country.

Attentive tour guide, well organized in view of the shortage of time. Good gastronomic tips without obligation. The excursion fully met my expectations.
