It was a great hike. I would have avoided two stops: the one in the Spanish town where we had lunch and the last one on the lookout point. More time in Biarritz would have been perfect

The guide was really informative and so helpful guiding us around the maze of bars. Especially gracious and clear when dealing with the need for gluten free food.

Great experience! I would prefer to visit only three places, Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, and San Sebastián and spend more in these three beautiful cities.

Tour to have a snapshot of the area. It is short but gives you an idea of each place

Very good tour, the guide Stefan very nice and with a lot of knowledge!
