The BREATHTAKING VIEWS will start in Mollarri, an island unknown even to some locals, which offers a panoramic view of Zarautz like no other spot. At the same time, it is the location for a curious story concerning an industrial dock in the early 20th century. Those views are still alive in the beautiful COAST ROAD that links Zarautz and Getaria, village in which Basque culture and tradition are the main attraction.

The town’s location, perched on the hills overlooking the sea, offers spectacular views that will stay in your memory forever. And last but not least... the cherry on the cake: THE FAMILY TXAKOLI WINERY: Learn all the wine making process, from grape aging to bottling, and spoil your senses by tasting the different types of Txakoli in the winery along with ‘bonito’ (a type of tuna common in the Atlantic Sea), and/or the delicious and popular Getaria’s Anchovies. Take a walk through the vineyard and talk directly to the wine makers, that are also the owners of the winery! With the fishing village of Getaria, the sea, the vineyard and the mountains in front of you, I can guarantee you that this experience will stay in your memory forever. Other things to note After the visit to the winery, the standard tour would have finished, and I would drive you to your hotel/apartment. Having said that, there are many clients of me who choose to have lunch in one of the typical grilled fish restaurants in Getaria... And that’s definitely an excellent option! My recommendations, yours to take: ElKano, Kaia, Iribar or Txoko Restaurant. Reservation in advance is recommended.

There is not a better overview of the local food scene
Unique Local Chef Pintxo´s Class
-I´ll show you ingredients from traditional Basque gastronomy and we will locate them geographically in the territory of the seven Basque provinces, so you can tour the Basque Country through its gastronomic culture. -We will cook and taste 6 of the most famous Pintxos of San Sebastián´s bars, while I tell you their stories, secrets and tips so you can cook like a local chef. They will be 6 bite "Basque tapas" that will include local ingredients as fish, pork, cheese, eggs, dairy products and vegetables. Dessert will include the original recipe of "the best Cheesecake in the World", from "La Viña" bar. It is possible to adapt the 6 pintxos for vegetarians, but because most of the ingredients in our culture are of animal origin, it is not a course suitable for vegans. Sorry. -We will set up a little stand with different props for you to take beautiful photographs of the Pintxos you've prepared, so you can share your experience and new knowledge with family and friends. Cook like a local !! Other things to note The class I offer is dynamic. You, traveller, will cook your own Pintxos with my help. The most important thing is to arrive hungry for cooking, learning, enjoying and getting your hands dirty!!
