The hike was hard work and your are best wearing sneakers but it was very worthwhile. There was no information provided by the guide on the tour. It would have been great to get some more historical details about San Juan de Gaztelugatxe but nothing was provided. It was his first solo trip so maybe other guides maybe more knowledgeable. The Guggenheim was brilliant and we worth the trip. Overall I enjoyed the trip but it would have been much better had we had been provided with more information and a short tour of Bilbao.

We had a fantastic time. Juan Lou was an outstanding guide. He was personable and fun to be with. He was also thoughtful of the various needs of some group members. Our group hopes to come back to experience other tours with him.
