One of Basque Country's remaining culinary mysteries is the txoko. These dining societies are curious to outsiders in the know, but remain a fully local secret. Our insider guides, however, have opened their society to our clients, so we couldn't resist creating an amazing experience for you.

By popular demand, the Gastronomic Society Lunch is here. Set off with one of our friendly expert guides and do as Basques do: stop by the market and the shops to cross off your shopping list. Then enter the door of the dining society and watch as a traditional lunch is prepared. Settle down at the large, family-style tables and enjoy a lunch prepared with products from the market and wines from the society's cellar. A must-do while in San Sebastián.
