Cider House Tour

Catch the flavors . . .

San Sebastián, Spain

€ 180/person
Traditional Basque Menu Unlimited Apple Cider 3 Hours

Change up the scenery

Experience one of the oldest and most traditional Basque meals served in a rustic, farmhouse setting. Keep in mind – though peak apple cider season runs between January and May, excellent offerings are also available between October and December.


Dating back to the 11th century, the Basques would gather at different apple farmhouses dotted across the countryside to stock up on their supply – often trading fish or beef for barrels of cider. These cider houses – or "Sagardotegis" – became social hubs to cook, share tales, and take in some warmth.


Travel a mere 20 minutes outside Donostia - San Sebastián and find yourself amidst hilly and vibrant green countryside where apples are harvested and turned into cider. Enjoy your meal inside wood-beamed farmhouses and move freely between massive barrels of fresh cider - catching the different flavors in your glass.

A Feast

Savor one of the more traditional Basque menus in the land offering succulent grilled txuletas (high quality, aged rib steaks), fresh cod or hake, bright omelets, vibrant salad, chorizo, cheeses, walnuts, and quince jelly. And, of course, tap into an unlimited stream of the different ciders – all with distinctive flavor profiles for you to discover.

Eric was a perfect guide, fluent in Spanish & English. We’ve visited San Sebastián before but now feel enriched with the knowledge Eric shared with us to go and explore with insiders tips!! Each venue has specialized food and we couldn’t try everything but we have a list of ‘must do’s’ in the next few days...Wow, what a day.

If you're planning to go to San Sebastian, start your trip with a pintxo tour from Eric... Each place we went to, Eric knew the best pintxos to order. They were often things made fresh in the kitchen I would never have known about. I had a great time hanging out with Eric. Definitely one of the best food experiences I have had!
