Loved shopping at the market, and had a wonderful time preparing a gorgeous lunch with all of our purchases! This is such a unique tour, very informal and hands-on, and a great opportunity to prepare and indulge in many typical Basque dishes and local wines. Warning: Don't eat a large breakfast, and plan for a light dinner that night! Our guide and chef Lide really made this a fun and memorable afternoon.If you love food and you love to cook, we highly recommend the Private Gastronomic Club Lunch Experience!

This was such a wonderful day. We (two couples) loved having the opportunity to experience a unique part of the Basque culture, enjoying a great meal in one of the members-only gastro clubs. Jani was our guide and chef. She led us on a tour of the market, where we chose the ingredients for our meal. On our walk from the market to the club, Jani told us about the city, giving us a local’s perspective. Working with Jani to prepare our meal was so much fun. We had the best time!

We spent the day with Jani for the gastro club lunch market experience and we could not have had a better experience. She was such a great guide, host and companion for the day. There were times during the day that we felt we were just spending time with a friend in the best way possible. She was such an amazing and hospitable host showing around the city and hosting us at the gastro club. If you ever get the opportunity definitely use this service if at all possible. Our Such a blast of a day and great guide! We also did the cheese farm/wine tour with Andy the day prior and ditto for our experience with him. A must do while in Basque and authentic way to learn more about the unique area/culture. Thanks to Andy and Jani!!

Our family of four (including two teenagers) was supposed to do the Way of St James Hike. However, lots of rain was forecasted and a hike seemed like a bad idea. Basque Tours suggested switching to the San Sebastian Market Visit and Private Gastronomic Club Lunch Experience. I'm so glad they did. Jon, one of the owners, picked us up from our hotel and drove us to a few scenic spots for sightseeing and pics. We then toured the market and picked up ingredients for our very Basque lunch. Jon then proceeded to cook lunch for us while we helped a little bit and ate appetizers/drank wine. It was a delicious lunch and such a great way to get immersed in the culture at a local and private Gastronomic Club.

We happened to do the Pintxos tour with Jon's wife, Jani, the previous night. It was just as good. The food was amazing. You will feel like you are hanging out with friends. I would definitely do a tour with Basque Tours again.

Great gastronomic day! We were searching for a cooking class that provided a true local feel - not a cookie cutter, everything prepared for you class. We also wanted the local insight to the history and the current trends here in the heart of Basque Country. Jon was amazing - full of energy and insight and a zeal to provide fantastic customer service. We explored the local market (not that big) but Jon knows the vendors. Then we went to one of the Gastronoimc Clubs to cook with Pepe (the chef - who was also full of energy. The menu was customized for us. Wine, cooking, eating, laughing - what could be better. A true local experience.

I can't say enough about the quality of the tours and Jon, Jani, Andy, tour guides. Jon and Jani the owners are so caring, authentic , knowledgeable and fun
our trip would NOT have been even 1/100th as good without them. we did the pintxo, city, market and gastronomic club, french countryside with Andy, and basque countryside.Every tour was spectacular --do not miss any of them. do not miss the best fish of your life in Getaria fishing village. also the best tuna canned onsite--buy some! also the site from game of thrones, the coffee on top of the mountain, the private club cooking and dining experience on the terrace--I need 10 pages to write how perfect the trip was due to basque tours. We LOVED every minute! we can't wait to come back -they did custom timing for our tours-we really appreciated that

My girlfriend and I had the great pleasure of joining Jani for shopping at the San Sebastian Market and visiting her private gastronomic club for cooking and lunch! What a unique experience for us to see the local market with a local resident and then to participate with her in preparing our authentic Basque lunch! We were a little apprehensive prior to this outing as neither of us like to cook although we are both foodies and most certainly enjoy food and restaurants! Well, Jani quickly laid our fears to rest! We so enjoyed our time with her and learning from her about Basque cuisine and helping and watching her whip up a gourmet lunch in short order and then leisurely dining in a beautiful spot on the terrace at the private gastronomic club! It is an experience neither one of us will ever forget!

My wife and I did the pinxtos tour through Jon and Jani's company a couple years ago, and we had such a great time that we reached out to them again when we were in San Sebastian this year. The last time we were in San Sebastian we heard about the famous cooking clubs, and Jon and Jani offered a "tour" and opportunity to cook at their club. When we read about it, we jumped at the opportunity to cook a traditional basque meal at their club. We went shopping with Jani and spent a couple hours cooking, talking, and enjoying great food and wine. We also learned how to cook a couple dishes that we still make at home. Jon and Jani are great hosts, and I would highly recommend connecting with them to get an unforgettable Basque experience.

We love exploring cultures through getting to know the local cuisine. In the Basque Country, food is such an important part of life. This tour could not have been better. Jani was incredibly knowledgeable and clearly had a lot of fun sharing the food culture of the Basque Country with us. It felt really special to cook in one of the gastronomic societies (which was also a beautiful setting) and the chef was a great teacher. Even for people experienced with cooking you’ll learn new techniques. And of course the food and wine was delicious. We did a lot of tours while we were in Spain and this was the absolute best.

These guys were just awesome, especially for a bigger group, having them organize things, they went above and beyond and explained the "must have's" to eat and drink and the best places to go when things would be more or less crowded. It was just so much easier and in the know than had we gone on by ourselves. Couldn't recommend it more.
