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.
