"With so many bars to choose from, it pays to have an expert on hand. Jon Warren's brilliantly crafted tours fit the bill nicely. With bespoke cooking classes, vineyard tours and cider-house visits also available, you'll feel like you've been handed the keys to the city."- Home & Gardens

Cider holds a prized spot in any Basque’s glass, and an annual visit to the cider house is a sacred ritual. Experience this incredibly unique yearly local rite of passage with one of our guides in this tour, perfect for groups and friends.

We visit an authentic ciderhouse, whose walls are lined with barrels of freshly fermented cider, waiting to be tapped whenever thirst strikes. You will feast family style (the plates are meant to be shared among the dinners) on chorizo a la sidra, a spanish omelette with salt cod, cod with sweet peppers and onions, and txuleta (grilled bone-in prime rib cooked over an open fire). Dessert is local sheep’s cheese with walnuts and membrillo. The dinner is always punctuated with laughs and unlimited visits to the cider barrels.

You will line up with the locals to catch cider arching in a stream across the room. Perfecting the art of the pour is not easy, but the practice is fun. A night at the cider house is synonymous with having a great time and eating even better!

“Pintxo tour & sidreria” Thank you Eli for a wonderful food and cultural experience in San Sebastian. We have fallen in love with this beautiful city and will be back. Eli provides a great Spanish cultural experience that is authentic and sincere as you can get. We brought some friends along this time and everybody loved both experiences. Gracias Eli y nos vemos.

The whole evening was perfect and we really felt that we were experiencing something truly authentic that we would not have managed on our own. Thank for another classic night Jon.
