I recently had a lovely afternoon with Irene. My friend and I booked her through “Get Your Guide for the Bilboa San De Gatztelugatxe and Txacoli Wine Trip ”. It was a fantastic day! I highly recommend her services- she is delightful, genuine and knowledgeable. Before the day was over we were wanting to book another excursion with Irene. Thank you Irene!
