Would you like to know who is going to take good care of you?

Kaixo!! (Hi!) I’m Mikel, your private guide and your “local insider”, ready to show you the real Basque Country!

Born in the beautiful Old Quarter of Bilbao, I´m an experienced traveler who has lived in the USA, the UK and France, and has visited over 45 countries in the world. College graduate, part-time University professor and passionate about Basque history, culture and unique traditions.

You will benefit from my knowledge as your own local insider from the very first stage of designing your tailor-made tours to the farewell meal before you return to your home country, after experiencing the very best of the Basque Country.

I´m also a member of the Board of APITE, the Association of Professional Guides of the Basque Country. And an authorized guide of the Guggenheim Museum, the masterpiece of architecture of the 20th century.

Are you looking for the best guide to show you around? Interested in a tailor-made visit? My goal is for you to have the most pleasant and happy experience during your journey of discovery of the Basque Country — a land of amazing landscapes, centuries-old traditions, unique culture and an internationally renowned cuisine.

And a proud holder of a Diploma in Wine Tourism in Rioja, that recognizes my knowledge of Rioja wines, history and traditions.

  • NOTE: I am not affiliated or have any relationship with restaurants, bars, hotels or any other establishment. To always offer you the best service, I am fully independent and my guests should feel free to choose the establishments they wish (but I can offer you my recommendations).
  • Transport in a comfortable premium, fully equipped car, with 5+2 independent, reclinable seats.
  • For over 4 passengers, transport will be in a premium tour van.
