Stop At: Cervecerías La Mejillonera, Calle del Puerto, 15, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain

We’ll start at a bar that’s been a local favorite since the 1970s. Here you’ll try a selection of the best mussels in town with dry Basque cider. Master pouring cider from a height straight into your glass and learn all about the cultural phenomenon of “TXOTX!” This traditional stop will be your first introduction into what going out for pintxos really means in San Sebastian.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Zapore Jai, C. de San Jerónimo, 21, 20003 San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa, Spain

Next, you’ll dive into the fascinating world of Spain’s most famous delicacy: cured Iberian ham. We’ll introduce you to a family-run gem stocked with Basque and Spanish gourmet products. Try two of the most-renowned (and most expensive) cured hams especially chosen by our friend Sylvain. By the time we leave, you’ll have an understanding of the differences between them—and a favorite!

Stop At: Bar Txepetxa, Arrandegi Kalea, 5, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain

Natalia was a fantastic guide. Her knowledge of San Sebastián was excellent, and she took us to places we would have walked by without realising how good they were. Local knowledge is always invaluable
