Full description

With your guide, Olala Bordeaux, you will spend the day learning about the Basque country, its culture, and its cuisine. Famous for its rugby, its pelote (a type of sport), its waves, and its cuisine, it's a land of tradition and contrast tucked away between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountains. Olala will bring you to the heart of the splendid countryside along a route highlighting traditional Basque towns such as farms from the 15th century and the Sare Caves, the exquisite Ainhoa religious heritage, and Espelette. See the scarlet-red peppers displayed outside of houses, the Mendiguren Citadel, and other jewels from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port. 

In the Biarritz market, you will find all sorts of Basque specialties such as cheeses, hams, spices, the famous Basque-style cake, and even striped espadrilles, all made with local Basque material.

The company who provides the tour was really friendly. They will ask what is your preference for the tour and they will customize it by your need. I met Julie from the office, she is really a nice and helpful woman. And also Vincent as our guide, he is excellent, know very much about the history and can explain in english very well and he also very take care with us because we have 2 kids on this trip. Two thumbs up for them
