Secret Gastronomic Society & Pintxo tour
Do a night out in San Sebastian like a local, led by me, a local man passionate about sharing our culinary culture. You will discover a unique sensory and culinary experience when you enter the door of a Basque's Secret Gastronomic Society in Old Town (members only private club) and taste our local cheese that come from a 500 years old Basque cider house. If we find more members at the kitchen during our visit to my Gastronomic Club, you can interact with them while they are cooking some local dishes. We dive straight into the culinary heart of the city for a night of eating and drinking unlike any you’ve ever experienced. From fresh prawns to line-caught baby squid to perfectly charred steak, the pintxo hunt changes nightly but always features a range of traditional spots and chic, avant-garde bars. Come thirsty, too, as we’ll be pairing each pintxo with the perfect pour, from cider to local whites and reds. We’ll start by enjoying “txakoli”(local white wine) at the oldest wine cellar in Old Town where you will know the secret of Txakoli wine, before heading into hidden side-streets towards 4 of the city’s most loved pintxo bars + foodie temples. I will teach you how to ‘throw cider’ into your glasses, how to choose the best pintxos, all the while indulging in some of the best pintxos and Basque finest wines. There is not a better overview of the local food scene

Take a walk through the vineyard and talk directly to the wine makers, that are also the owners of the winery! With the fishing village of Getaria, the sea, the vineyard and the mountains in front of you, I can guarantee you that this experience will stay in your memory forever. Other things to note After the visit to the winery, the standard tour would have finished, and I would drive you to your hotel/apartment.
