Description

Fall in love with the picturesque villages of the Basque coast with this Biarritz day trip, where we will also visit San Sebastian and other villages of the French Basque country such as Hondarribia, St. Jean de Luz and Hendaye.

We will leave from Bilbao to head towards the border and get to Biarritz, where we will make the first stop. We will explore the must-see places of this popular city on a panoramic tour. We will walk through its most central and commercial streets, go through the area of old Port, with its beaches and its lighthouse. We will pass by the Casino, the Museum of the Sea and Du Palais Hotel, Napoleon's former residence.

We will continue the trip to the village of St. Jean De-Luz (Saint John of Light). We will make a visit to see its historic buildings and its typical port.

Continuing along the coast we will arrive at Hendaye, at the mouth of the Bidasoa River, from where we will take a boat that will cross the Bay to Hondarribia. We will visit the medieval walled area of Hondarribia and its Charles V Castle, not forgetting the Marina Zone, with its lively atmosphere and typical flowery balconies.

Then we'll give you some free time for lunch. Our guide will recommend the best places to take Pintxos or tasting good menus.

In the afternoon we will go to San Sebastian, where we will know the essentials of this stately and elegant city. We will begin with a panoramic bus tour through its most interesting areas such as Paseo de la Concha, including the climb to Monte Igueldo with its breathtaking views.

We will end with a walking tour of the old area, with emblematic buildings such as the Church of the Virgin of the Coro, the town hall and the Old Port. Then you will have free time to enjoy the bay and its magnificent views or have a coffee on one of its terraces before returning to Bilbao in the late afternoon.

Customer Reviews

"Fantastic, unforgetable day from start to finish. Would highly recommend. Great value for money."
05/08/2019
Local pick up point, clean and comfortable bus and very well looked after by tour guide and driver. Stunning locations to visit and all accompanied by clear explanation of history and culture. Short stops, but sufficiently long enough to appreciate the beauty and importance of everywhere and savour the local culinary delicacies.

Probably a bit too many locations to visit and as a consequence not enough time it each city. Otherwise good guide (Stephane) and interesting places.

"Las vistas desde el Monte Igueldo, son espectaculares."

Tuvimos la mala suerte de ir a Hondarribia cuando estaban en fiestas y fue imposible encontrar un sitio para comer (todo estaba lleno). Paramos allí una hora y no pudimos ver nada. En Biarritz se paró para ver la Virgen sobre la roca y dar un corto paseo por los alrededores porque se canceló el paso del autobús en barco. La visita a San Sebastián también coincidió con la competición de traineras y apenas se podía andar por la calle. Las vistas desde el Monte Igueldo son espectaculares. Yo recomendaría dedicar a San Sebastián un día entero, ya que no se incluye en la excursión la visita a los peines del aire. También recomendaría que el que quiera visitar Biarritz le dedique otro día, es demasiada distancia desde Bilbao para verlo todo.

Se perdió mucho tiempo en ir a diferentes hoteles a recoger a distintos miembros del grupo, como consecuencia de ellos, el viaje en barco de San Juan de Luz a Fuenterrabía se suspendió, a pesar de que estaba programada. En el resto de visitas todo igual, muchas prisas para llegar a la hora marcada. En cuanto al guía, dejó mucho que desear, no por ser esloveno, sino por las pocas explicaciones que daba en las "visitas guiadas". En concreto, en Fuenterrabía, la visita consistió en lo siguiente: "Quedamos en este buzón en 45 minutos, por ahí los restaurantes y por arriba el casco viejo".
