Summary

Discover the beautiful coastal city of San Sebastian and also known as Spain's culinary capital during this 3-day gastronomy tour. Enjoy pintxos (Basque tapas) paired with superb wines and learn how to make pintxos with a cooking class.

Itinerary

Day 1
Check in at the Hotel Maria Cristina 5*. Optional: Pick up from airport and transfer to the hotel.

Welcome drink with a short introduction of San Sebastian, including a map of the city and a shopping guide. Welcome gift in the hotel room for each guest, including an apron and an especial product from our gourmet shop.

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 2
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.

Includes: Welcome drink, expert chef instruction, aperitif, 100% hands-on class, multi-course lunch comprised of the dishes made in class, a selection of Spanish wines, digestif, keepsake recipe booklet and pen, gift.
