    This is a first for us to hike with a guide. I was hesitant because in general the guides are boring 😁 But then Fabien is really captivating and the legends of witches are told with taste and passion; we are immersed in his stories. When the walk ends, we ask for more. A repeat without hesitation ! The 5 stars are well deserved. Fabien is fascinating, smiling, and knows how to take us with him into this mystical world. The trail route is very pretty and the stories told lend themselves well to the locations. The little cards handed out to the children are great and leave them with a great memory. Thank you for this top organization!

    Julien is a real "guide" 💫: he shares his country and his knowledge with naturalness and enthusiasm. It creates parallels between History and stories, facts 🧚 and legends🧙‍♀️, sheds light on news events. It makes the link with the past, the present, choices, consequences, knowledge and beliefs. Politics, religion, mythology. Against a backdrop of nature, accompanied by the elements of the place and the beings who live there... more than just a walk! The pace adapts to everyone and Julien is attentive to everyone. Beautiful visual aids! A family transmission made accessible to all, great encounters and lovely discoveries. Many thanks.

    Julien is a passionate and fascinating guide! He knew how to pace the 9km ride and thus captivate young and old alike. His stories, historical, fantastic or enigmatic, transport us to a time when many things happened but without taboo, allowing each of us to identify in our quest for answers. The chosen illustrations, the stopping places, the attachment of this guide to its history and that of its Basque country won us over. The cave at the end is sublime. We had a great time! Children too, keeping their heads full of memories and a pretty pendant in memory of this witches' walk! THANK YOU Julien
