Essential basque country - 5-day itinerary, Basque Country - May 2 - May 2, 2018

Traveler: Mary W. - Local specialist: Iñaki Rubio

Inaki was really wonderful. He was very good at giving us a full experience on all the many facets of the Basque country. He is very enthusiastic about his country and is extremely knowledgeable. I had a great time and he was very, very good. Was attentive to our needs and gave up choices. The Cooking Lesson and the Pintos tour was a lot of fun. He also did a video of our trip for us. What a nice touch!

Inaki was fantastic. He has very attuned to our needs. We were four woman and he kept us all happy. He had made special every where, so no matter where we went to sight se, cook or eat he knew someone and we were given the royal treatment.

We would all use him and again and have already written to our friends who will be coming his area.

A guided tour of the french basque country, Basque Country - Apr 26 - Apr 29, 2018

Traveler: Danielle B. - Local specialist: Iñaki Rubio

I feel so fortunate to have discovered Inaki Rubio and his company, Just Follow Me. The tour that I took with him of the French Basque Country was the highlight of my trip to Spain. I had suggested a few places that I would like to visit (specifically St. Jean de Luz, Espalette, and the Le Petit Train de la Rhune), and he helped me to plan a day that I will always remember.

I feel so fortunate to have discovered Inaki Rubio and his company, Just Follow Me. The tour that I took with him of the French Basque Country was the highlight of my trip to Spain. I had suggested a few places that I would like to visit (specifically St. Jean de Luz, Espalette, and the Le Petit Train de la Rhune), and he helped me to plan a day that I will always remember. Inaki was the ideal host, as his knowledge of the area was evident throughout the tour. I am fascinated with learning more about the Basque culture, and he answered all of my questions, sharing anecdotes and history with me. I really appreciated his flexibility, as we were originally going to take the train up to the top of La Rhune and hike down, but I changed my mind when I realized that the weather was a bit too cold and windy. So instead I was able to spend more time in Espalette, Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, and Hondarribia. I also appreciated that he showed me some interesting places to visit in San Sebastian, and even offered to help me make reservations at a local restaurant. I will definitely be recommending Just Follow Me to all of my friends and family, and I hope to take another tour with Inaki when I visit the area again in the future.

Thanks for those words Danielle. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. My best regards. I hope we meet again one day. Inaki

Spain, Basque Country - Jun 30 - Jul 11, 2017

Traveler: Amelia B. - Local specialist: Iñaki Rubio

We toured a vineyard with the ninth generation winemaker, hiked along the Camino de Santiago, learned local favorites at a cooking school, saw the Running of the Bulls, and had a Pintxos tour with a native. I could not have planned this trip on my own, and there are no travel companies who sell a tour that happened to be exactly what I wanted. I loved being able to customize the trip on KimKim!

Inaki's recommendations were fantastic! I so much appreciate his guidance in planning a trip that included so many highlights that could not have been arranged with out the expertise of a local guide.

Great to hear Amelia. Thank you for your feedback. All the best. Inaki
