What people are saying about Basque Country

Had the best experience ever. I’ve been at a lot of the stadiums since I’m a big Chelsea supporter, but only Athletic history made me book a tour even without the game itself. It was absolutely amazing and I can’t thank both of our tour guides enough. They were incredible & it was really interesting talking to someone who’s travelling away as well & knows their club 100%. Unfortunately I didn’t ask their name but the tour was on 26.01.20 and I would recommend this to everyone. My friend she’s not a football fan, but she enjoyed it a lot!

Good choice of activity for football fans The guide (# 4) was extremely engaged and knowledgeable about football - and spoke good English - he alternated seamlessly between English and Spanish. Although we were only 4 English speakers and the rest Spanish, he gave us just as much time. Fantastic stadium and museum. Looking forward to the match there tonight.

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!

It was a nice way to learn something about soccer. Even if you don’t like soccer you will like the tour!
