French Basque luxury private Tours
A Tour to French Basque Country icons
The sophisticated French culture has enriched the life of Basques on both sides of the Pyrenees through science, art, gastronomy, luxury, haute couture or human rights. In the French Basque Country, the mix of Basque, Spanish and French cultures with a Gascony, Jewish and English touch has created unique ways of life on the coast and in the mountains.
Victor Hugo, described the Basque people in detail in his book “Alpes et Pyrénées.” He also lovingly recalls Bayonne and its heritage. He describes the luxury and delicacy of the city and the beach in Biarritz. The poet did not describe the current day golf courses or the locals love of rugby. He was also not able to meet Ravel who was born in the coastal town of Ciboure. It is easy to see that this quiet and bucolic region gave inspiration also to Pablo de Saraste, the violinist and the composer Albeniz.
Other towns like St. Jean-Pied-de-Port, Sare, Ainhoa, La Bastida Clarence are in the list of the most beautiful villages in France. This is an area where important historical and legendary events featured in “The Song of Roland” happened. This region has been a stop for travelers as you can read in the oldest travel guide of Europe, “Codex Calixtinus”.
A private tour by the inland French Basque Country is a must to complete and understand the identity of the Basque Country, a riveting mix of modernity in an old country.

I have been planning our (myself and my 11 y.o. son) trip to French and Spanish Basque country with help of my Spanish friends (Basque country locals) and Rick Steves (who is a professional traveler) guidebook. Let me tell you that none of them can come even close to Aitor! (...) we will remember this day forever! Aitor Delgado is simply the best! (...) very warm and friendly person, one of these rare kinds of people whom you really enjoy to be around.
Review by Natalia S.,
He was extremely reliable and kind in his correspondence. He picked us all up in a super comfy van and we started our day. It was the best tour ever! He showed us so much, took us to the best places to eat that we would have never found on our own. It was so much fun and he put us all at ease. (...) he has so much passion for his country and teaching you about it. It was worth every penny and more!

Aitor is a good friend and one of the best tour guides we ever met. He took us to fantastic places and restaurants that you can never imagine. Following michelin guide for food is nice, but following Aitor is an experience that can not be described...
