Iker Bardaji, Founder & Manager


Born in San Sebastian, Basque Country, I’m an enthusiastic person who loves travelling and sharing my experiences with people.

I have visited over 50 countries and guided travellers  for over 12 years.

After travelling around the world in my last big trip, during 14 months, I decided to set up this bussiness to offer the travellers an unique view of the Basque Country & Rioja and surroundings like a local.

I have a long experience guiding people along the Basque Country, specially around San Sebastian, Bilbao, Pamplona, Vitoria as well as the French-Basque Country and the famous Rioja Wine region.

As well as I travel abroad often, I love to work showing my city and surroundings, guiding people to the best places, not only to the touristic ones, but to the off-the-track ones too. Always adding some of my little stories and anecdotes of each place making the journey more enjoyable and unique.

Living in a place with a food-culture like us, it adds an extra value to my tours, being a member of a Gastronomy Club as I am (famous «sociedad gastronónica») in San Sebastian .
This is only one of some of the tips I would offer you, considering that the only way to visit and access to them is being invited by a member! Great experience not to be missed!!

Would you like to listen to some of the stories I have to share, while I show you the beautiful country where I live in is?

Come and feel the experience of the Basque Country with a real local guide! Ongi etorri! («Welcome» in Basque).
