Georges and Léo adapted with great kindness and flexibility to our family (2 adults and a 12-year-old child) to offer us a visit in French with a mix of electric bike and Segway. The course is beautiful and extremely immersive. The explanations and anecdotes are captivating. A trip to the top and very beautiful memories! We heartily recommend them!

El tour lo tomamos con Zumaya. Un tour muy hermoso y Zumaya mostró tener gran conocimiento. Lo disfrutamos muchísimo. Altamente recomendado. No apto para personas con dificultades al caminar pues tiene muchas escaleras y algunas empinadas.

Excellent meal followed by brilliant flamenco show-all very well organised by the venue. Food was really good but large portions so be warned! We even had a complimentary glass of fizz with the show-thank you!

It was great but be prepared for a bumpy ride at times on the cobblestone streets.. It was very busy, however the attendants were very attentive to “first come first served”

Really enjoyed going off the beaten track with our guide on Thursday morning. insightful, local knowledge -really interesting
