Your welcome and hospitality matched that of loved relatives. This wasn’t what was expected and asked for. You went that extra mile, just because you cared. You are wonderful people and I’m so glad I found you guys.
Inaki as a guide, you not only had vast knowledge of the place, but were so patient with our group of 8 ladies. Your enthusiasm and love for your region made us experience it as locals. You made the whole experience memorable. And to top it all your singing and sense of humor added that extra that will not be matched. Beautiful voice!
I would recommend you to everyone who is looking for an amazing experience in the beautiful Basque Country (Spain/France), and Pamplona. I would love to come back again with my family. Thank you!!
