If you have any doubts about doing this tour - I am here to assure you that it meet all of my expectations plus some. I travelled solo so I was a little apprehensive but all my doubts were expelled as soon as I met the tour guide and the others in the group. I was blown away by the beauty of San Sebastian and really enjoyed touring the market and cooking with a chef from the gastronomic society. This was followed by a wonderful meal with matching wines. Bilbao was a lovely day starting with the Guggenheim museum and a meal at a Michelin star restaurant. Meal was fantastic!

As part of the "A Taste of Spain" tour we spent 2 days traveling Bilbao and San Sebastian Basque cuisine with the beautiful scenery of San Sebastian was magnificent~~!! Food/hotel and view was top notch.
The 2 days was too short for me personally and I would like to visit San Sebastian again for a longer stay next time. Also will try the Basque cooking recipe we had at the Gastronomic Society~~~

Spent an entertaining and delicious day cooking with the chef from the gastronomic society. Not only interesting in cooking techniques but also in learning the history of these clubs. Wonderful lunch of basque dishes with lovely wines. We did a private event for a group of 4 - recommend highly!

My experience in San Sebastian and Bilbao areas was fabulous. The Mediterranean influence was all around us. I loved the palm trees, floral and beauty of this area. The food was delicious as well!
