We loved Estefan! Knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. We thought it was good value for money, and loved 3/4 stops. The lunch stop in Honorarriba, could have been skipped. It wasn’t very good in my opinion. Really enjoyed it overall.

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

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.
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.
Our guide Stefan is very good. He organize everything perfect and give sufficient info. Our driver Florin was also good. No excitement during driving. I advice to extend the tour one hour more, and give more free time at Biarritz and San Sebastian.
This was an excellent tour covering 4 stops. Stefano was excellent, he has great local knowledge and is a jovial character.
Our guide, Stefan, was enchanting ! Wonderful day..
