What To Expect

The French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote: “Gernika is the happiest town in the world. Their affairs are governed by a board of peasants that meets under an oak tree and always makes the fairest decisions ”. And here we go, to the city bombed by Nazi planes in 1937 that inspired one of the most well-known paintings in the world, Picasso’s mural-sized “Guernica”. We will visit the city and, of course, the tree under which the (we hope) “fairer decisions” are made.

Memorize this name: ‘Urdaibai’ and try to pronounce it well (it’s not easy, we know) because you won’t forget it. Declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, Urdaibai is a large estuary at which mountains, rivers, the sea and large stretches of sand come together. Depending on the tide and time of day, the landscape (and the dozens of birds that inhabit it) may be radically different.

We’ll also stop at Mundaka, a hot spot on the world's ‘surfaris’ routes: its beach has one of the most (possibly the most) perfect waves on the planet, with a left-hand break. At the fronton of this adorable fishing village, we’ll challenge you to a Basque pelota match - the real thing, played with bare hands and a ball that looks like stone.

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
The people of Bilbao have always claimed that their city was the capital of the world. When the Guggenheim museum opened in 1997, that prophecy came true and the building became an architectural phenomenon whose influence has spilled over into the rest of the city. The people of Bilbao say that the museum is actually the “doghouse” of Puppy, the iconic statue that welcomes you at the entrance (Basque ironic mode on). We’ll get to know the building and its main works of contemporary art.

Ikusnahi is a great tour provider. They are very professional and are responsive to your queries and are accommodating. Ernes the guide was very knowledgeable about the region and you know that he loves to do what he does. This tour is a must to know the region, outside of san sebastian. It was well timed and well planned and you didn't feel rushed at all. At this was a private tour, you could ask whatever you want and the guide readily answered and assisted. He knew all the right spots to get the best views and pictures. We went all around the guggenheim museum to appreciate the structure (i.e. from the bridge, the side, the front, you name it !). Thank you Ernes for a great tour.

Diego was a wonderful tour guide. He certainly made our tour an interesting and pleasurable experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Basque history and experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Diego.
Great day trip from San Sebastian

We had a terrific time exploring the Basque region and the Guggenheim. Our tour guide Diego was very knowledgeable and personable helping to make it a fabulous day.

The tour of Guernika was very informative, with Diego sharing first hand knowledge of the Basque culture. Mundaka is a quaint fishing village overlooking the Urbaidai estuary. Even though it wasn’t a day to see the perfect waves, it was still a beautiful view. The stop and short hike at Dragonstone was well worth it and we are not even Game of Throne fans.

What fun it was seeing Puppy outside the Guggenheim and we appreciated Diego asking other tourists who were done taking photos if they’d mind moving so we could get a better picture. Seeing all the cool cars on display at the Guggenheim was a treat.

It was definitely worth taking thisprivate tour of the Basque Region!
Una visita maravillosa por la costa Vasca entre San Sebastián y Bilbao, parando por varios pueblos llenos de encanto.

Después de 2 malas experiencias con otras compañías descubrimos Ikusnahi. Fue lo mejor que nos pudo pasar. Una diferencia abismal respecto a las otras compañías. Ernes es una persona honesta y con calidad humana. Si contratas un tour con comida incluida, te da una VERDADERA COMIDA, sin escatimar un céntimo.
El contenido cultural e histórico del tour fue excelente.
Recomiendo esta experiencia y en realidad cualquiera con Ikusnahi. No lo duden, si están en San Sebastián contraten con ellos!
