Conducted in the working kitchen of a local restaurant. Really well done and organized. Highly recommend doing this while in town!"

I am a Basque native, in love with my country, culture and gastronomy. And after be working with travelers 7 years, in 2015 I started offering artisan, unique and authentic experiences in my own. Aiming to offer the possibility to enjoy feeling and living, the true essence of the Basque Country, out of the commercial and away from the tourist masses. And this is the best experience I offer ever about hiking in the country side and probably the most pure that is offered in San Sebastian. If you don’t believe me, came on to hike to the Shepherd´s paradise and taste best mountain food & drinks into the wild. And after completing the experience, you are not satisfied. I will return you, the amount paid for it.

Stroll through the old town of Bilbao and along the riverbank to see the striking Guggenheim Museum. Lunch in a traditional restaurant is included.

* A traveler said: "This was a great day. I didn't know much about Gaztelugatxe, but it was beautiful. The walk to the chapel and back can be a bit of a challenge if you're only on so so shape, but soooooo worth it. After seeing Gaztelugatxe, we headed to Bilbao. We saw a few city sites then headed to lunch. Unfortunately, it started pouring down rain, but we all made the most of it. Lunch was great, and even better that it was included in the price. The Guggenheim was quite a site to see. My only recommendation for the company would be to clean up the car a bit, as first impressions are important, however our guide was great and the small group was just my family of 4, plus 1 more. I looked at other tours that went to Bilbao and toured the Guggenheim and the others were twice as much. This is a great tour and awesome value."
