This trip was fabulous. My guide made a real effort to give lots of information and was happy to answer any questions. As we were a small group of three, the guide included an additional stop. The small towns of Elorrio and Oinati were beautiful. But the monastery and mountain surrounds of Arantazu were breathtakingly beautiful. A great day.

This was an excellent way to get out into the Basque country side. The church in Oinati was so beautiful to be in such a small town. Teresa, our guide was good.
