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.

Stephan was a knowledgeable and charming guide. I really enjoyed him. If I had any complaints, it’s that the tour tries to do too much. I knew we were seeing multiple towns but would have preferred to visit less towns and spend more time in the towns. I also prefer trips in just English. A tour in two languages is just too distracting.

Comprehensive tour with excellent guide.

The places visited were of significant interest, particularly St Jean de Luz and San Sebastian. Because of the ground covered I felt there was insufficient time in each place. Also, the final stop at an amusement oark was superfluous, apart from taking in the view. I commend the guide, Stefan, who was very personable and knowledgeable.
