Fantastic tours and Iker the best guide
Nov 2019
My husband and I booked a 3/12 day tour and was fantastic. We started with a walking tour exploring the sights of San Sebastian and ended at the best local pintxos bars. We learned about local customs, food and drink. The next days we went to the Rioja wine tour, Lourdes and Biarritz in France. All of them amazing. Iker was very flexible and willing to accomodate our specific interests. He assures your tour is exceptional. He is very friendly and respectful. We had a real local experience and not the tourist traps. We highly recommend Iker as a guide. We hope to come back soon and hire Iker to be our guide

Enjoying San Sebastian and its vicinity in 3½ days with Iker
Nov 2019
Rather than book 4 independent tours, we found this option of a 3 day package. At the beginning we were skeptic, what if we do not make a good click with the guide. Just 5 minutes after meeting Iker our fear dissapear. He is not just very knowledgable of the history and culture of the different places, but he is open to customize the tour to your main interests, offer you options for you to pick, guide you into nice not regular places, in which you will experience a real local experience and not just the tourist favorites. We did the pintxos tour, the Rioja wine tour and Lourdes and Biarritz in France. All of them were extraordinary, excellent food everywhere, impresive sigthseeing and a very friendly, responsible, respectul guide. We highly recommend visiting this area, and getting in touch with Iker to get the most out from your vacations.

Iker is the best guide ever!
Jun 2019 • Family
Our three day tour with Iker was exceptional!!! He is so knowledge and easygoing, and was able to cater the tour to all of our interests. We are big foodies, and he was able to take us and recommend incredible places to eat. We especially enjoyed our stop in Getaria for second breakfast (an anchovy feast) and lunch in the cider house. We really could not recommend this tour/Iker more highly. Definitely a must do for tourists interested in food/wine/cider! Thank you Iker :)

Best guide we’ve ever had
Jun 2019 • Family
Iker is an absolutely exceptional guide. He’s incredibly knowledgeable but also really good at catering the trip to our interests. We were all really interested in food and he made a lot of changes to the tour to create an authentic and exciting food experience. Having taken many private tours before, this tour clearly stands out as an A++

A Perfect Honeymoon Tour Guide
Apr 2019 • Couples
Iker is far and above the best tour guide I’ve had in all my travels, and my wife agreed for her own as well. With only 10 or so countries under our belt, that may not be much, but there was something else.

His love for the Basque Country and culture was evident from day one. He actually enjoys his job and takes great pride in being a guide for those looking to learn more about his beautiful home and people.

He was a huge help for any day of our trip, even ones that he was not with us on. When our travel agent gave us the wrong time for our first days tour, Iker still came to give our first tour 5 hours early. His part in our trip is most certainly one that will make it so memorable.

I, an American, have no negative words for his work, he is the best guide I could have asked for.

Thank you Iker,

Evan and Emma Bruski

An Exceptional 3 day tour and tastes of San Sebastian and area!
Jan 2019 • Couples
My wife and I had an amazing 3 day tour with Iker Bardaji around San Sebastian and the Basque region. We both had a fantastic time! From wine tasting in the incredible Rioja region to touring the French-Basque countryside, Bilbao and the Guggenheim we felt like we got a really great taste of the area and culture.

Iker also arranged all of our restaurant reservations, from small and hidden local gems to acclaimed Michelin Star establishments. Our final meal at Arzak was off the charts amazing!! We definitely want to bring our friends back and explore some more. Thanks again Iker for a great introduction to your world!

Ernes and Ikar are the very BEST Guides!
Jun 2018 • Friends
We spent four wonderful days with Ernes and Ikar. We started our San Sebastian time with a wonderful walking tour of the city followed by a pintxos tour with Ernes. He was very knowledgeable and a joy to be with. He took us to the very best locations for pintxos and paired them with the best wines. We took the day long tour of the Rioja region with visits to two different wineries. One with all the modern methods for wine making and one with wines made in the traditional fashion. We took the day tour of the French Basque coast with a very special visit to the hometown of Ernes. We also took a day tour to Bilbao, visiting the Guggenheim with Ikar. Ikar is also a joy to be with. These two guides are the very best – and are so proud of their region. They and the tours they prepared for us were the highlight of our summer vacation.

Iker is an amazing young man!!
Oct 2017 • Couples
From my title u can imagine how wonderful Iker was to the 6 of us. He did have his hands full of Texans - but no doubt we were no trouble to him as he was so professional with us on all of our 3 day tours. Iker showed such interest in our questions & comments of the Basque culture & cities - we all felt as we had received a degree of knowledge of this beautiful county of Spain & its beautiful country side & cities. We all recommend him highly. I especially applaud Iker as I fell & tripped landing on the curb face down. He was 1st to my rescue - making sure I was ok. He
insisted on taking me to the hospital - I agreed -- all went well he was by my side every step - translating to the Dr. nothing broken - & the rest of the day he never left my side as we walked the rest of the tour ......... A most generous & lovely man that loves his job & people............ Thank you Iker for all u did. Come to Dallas !
