This tour was hectic but fantastic, Thanks to Yon the tour guide. he mixed the serious culture with the comical to perfection.(Jon, Maite Zaitut ) Also all the drivers were very patient, and I have now got an adopted brother. On a slightly sour note I booked it on the internet that said after each days activity, B L D and because it did not give an option to include food. I took it for granted it was included. No it wasn't .My spending was seriously curtailed. Even so, I would not have missed it for anything
Various places were visirted with a nice and longer stop in fisherman village Bermeo and a good visit and history explanation in Gernika in the Basque parliament. Some stops wit a castle and a chapel at a sea cliff were mere photostops and would have bene nice for a longer visit and sightseeing, but time was restricted. The guide was nice and gave a lot of background !
This was a great tour because the destinations were remarkable and the tour guide provided so much additional insights/depth. I was disappointed that we could not walk along the stairs at Gaztelugatxe - it would have been good if the description of the tour (upon booking it) made that more clear and identified an option where that aspect was incorporated in the tour.
Trip was great. Loved it. Was exactly what we were looking for. Great for GOT fans. Get your guide has the wrong pickup location. They also have a large markup on the tour. I should have done some more research to book direct but that’s not always easy. All in all, I’d still book with these guides.
Maria did a wonderful job showing the locations and providing insights from her experience. The three sights we visited were fantastic and all very beautiful. I fully enjoyed it!
