Full description

From Bilbao, go on a guided tour of Guipuzcoa's San Sebastian. Learn about the history and culture of the city and visit a cider house where you can sample some ciders and sit down for a lunch of traditional Basque food. Opt to make your tour private and enjoy the day trip alone with a loved one.

Begin by getting picked up in Bilbao by van. Once you arrive in San Sebastian, go on a walking tour of the city and listen to your guide tell you all about the history and its magic. Hear stories about various characters throughout history and see hidden secret spots only locals know about.

After, get taken by your guide to the top of Monte Igueldo (one of Europe's oldest theme parks) and look down at the Comb Of The Wind sculpture by Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida. Enjoy the views and use the opportunity to take plenty of photographs.

Next, explore some of the Basque cider houses, a must-see since they are a great way to see how sailors and other Basque people used to enjoy their food and drink. The Basque sailors were regarded as some of the toughest men on the high seas, and their secret was plenty of cider and sautéed cod.

Have lunch in one of the oldest cider houses and sample a traditional Txuleta menu, which includes cod, omelette, chorizo cooked in cider, and the Basque Txuelta, which is similar to a T-bone steak. Learn how to pour yourself the cider from the massive barrel and drink until departure time.
