Dive into the culinary corazón of San Sebastián with one of our culinary adventures. With our walking and drinking tours, cooking classes and wine tastings, you're gonna get to know the culinary culture of the Basque Country and the delicious world of pintxos--Basque tapas.
Visit our favorite bars for small plates & perfect pours. Everything's local, seasonal & fresh, from foie gras to artichokes, crispy pig ears to wild mushrooms, braised veal cheeks to seared octopus. Tip a glass! We'll pair stellar wine, beer, cider, txakoli & vermouth--on tap!
You might be a little resaca (hungover) the next day, but you will never forget this dynamic night of eating, drinking & getting local in San Sebastián!
BOAT TRIP & TOUR
Our HALF DAY cooking class is a trip!
We’ll pick you up in a private taxi from your hotel and shoot over to a local fishing port. From there we’re jumping on a vintage boat to cross the channel & take a stroll through a sleepy medieval fishing village. After a scenic walk, we’ll grab a coffee & take a quick visit to Victor Hugo’s old house, he lived & ate in exile here for a couple years.
Next stop? One of our favorite restaurants! Dive headfirst into a real restaurant kitchen for this hands-on cooking class & lunch. Heavy on seafood, you’ll be cleaning squid & breaking down fish (tuna in summer), tasting local ingredients & cooking your very own lunch. Wine will flow, pintxos will be popped & you’ll get expert instruction on how to cook a proper Basque meal. Don’t worry, everything will be translated into English & we will email you the recipes.
We'll get you back home by ferry and taxi. It's a FULL half-day with a little tour & a big Basque lunch. A culinary adventure you'll never forget!
Cheers! Bon Appetite.
Topa! On Egin.
At BASQUE BITES we just want to eat and drink all day, every day. That's why we live in the Basque Country and that's why we made San Sebastián home.
With hundreds of bars in the Old Town alone, it's overwhelming and easy to get lost. You need a guide, but you don't want to be a tourist...
You won't feel foreign with Basque Bites! Groups are small and low key. Your guide LOVES to go out for a good night of food, wine, stories and fun. It's an awesome introduction to Basque culture and cuisine!
Our culinary tours and cooking classes are designed to show you how the locals do it so you never miss a great pour or the perfect plate.
Topa! Cheers! Salud! Santé! Kanpai! Prost!
