TripAdvisor Tour Testimonials
We visited 5 little french towns, all of them nice ,interesting, clean, lot of sign from past centuries. Our guide Diego very professional, very knowledgeble -he knows everything! He could work with people: .friendly, pay attention to details,his car comfortable. So our trip was the best!!!
While in San Sebastian on a week long holiday we decided to visit Lourdes in France and was advised by the hotel reception that Diego' s private guided tour to Lourdes would be a good option. Diego picked us up at our hotel and from the moment we met him he was proved to be a respectful and professional guide. His English was impeccable and his knowledge of the Basque Country excellent. He engaged with us in an informal, fun and pleasant manner. In Lourdes, he showed us around all the holy and tourist sites including the Grotto, the three Basilicas and spectacular views of the Pyrenees and Lourdes from the top of the Funiculaire du Pic du Jer. Diego created one of the best experiences of our holiday and comes highly recommended.
