Itinerary

Day 1,Seville
Check in at the Hotel Alfonso XII 5*. Optional: pick up from airport and transfer to the hotel.

Welcome drink with a short introduction of Sevilla, including a map of the city and a shopping guide. Welcome gift in the hotel room for each guest.

The walls decked out with Semana Santa and Feria posters, crowded and noisy, a religious statue looking over as plate after plate emerges from the bar: garbanzos with spinach, chorizo, croquetas and you begin to lose count. Sevilla has one of the highest number of bars per person in the world. Knowing exactly where to go for the best, freshest, and most authentic tapas takes local, insider knowledge.

Knowing where to find the best tapas is an art, a mixture of luck and local know-how. Do a night of tapas in Sevilla like a local, led by our friendly and knowledgeable Andalucían guides.

Sun, siesta and sangria may be the typical Spanish cliche, but our tour goes beyond the typical. We dive straight into the culinary heart of Sevilla for an eating and drinking experience unlike any you’ve ever experienced. From extra-tender beef cheek to unassuming abacerías, their walls lined with conserves, the tapas tasting tour changes every day but always features a range of local favorites. Come thirsty, too, as we’ll be pairing each tapa with the perfect pour, from sherry to local whites and reds.

Includes: Up to 4 tapas bars, all food & wine, local culinary bilingual guide.

Day 2, Seville
You have a free morning.

At 5:00 pm, take a seat at our luxurious tasting table, in the center of Sevilla, and prepare yourself for a sensory journey through Spain. In this tasting, our on-staff expert wine guide fills your glasses with the six most exciting wines, wines you won't find on the menus of the local bars, on the Spanish scene today.

This relaxed yet informative tasting will satisfy the wine fan’s thirst for extensive knowledge of contemporary Spanish winemaking as well as the novice visitor interested in sampling some delicious drinks, all without leaving Sevilla.

This demo lasts 2 hours and includes wines as well as a fabulous time among new friends.

Pintxos (Basque tapas) line every bar in San Sebastian’s famed Old Town, but knowing where to find the best ones is an art. While it’s hard to have a bad meal in town, knowing exactly where to go for the
best, freshest, and most exciting pintxos takes local, insider knowledge. Do a night out in San Sebastian like a local, led by our friendly and knowledgeable Basque guides.

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.

Includes: Up to 5-6 pintxo bars, all food & wine, local culinary bilingual guide

Day 4, San Sebastian
Small bites pack a powerful punch when it comes to the pintxo, Basque Country's most famous culinary export.

At its most basic, a pintxo is a small bite—but with a world of knowledge, tricks and tips behind its preparation. From the simple gilda, the city’s emblematic pintxo, to the elaborate creations that inspired by avant-garde cuisine, the world of pintxos is demystified and made easy and fun in our cooking school. Learn the basics and beyond in The Essential Pintxo class.

Each pintxo cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings. You will gather around our rustic wooden table to enjoy what you and your fellow classmates have cooked using your newly acquired knowledge.
