What you'll do

Experience the "Txotx!" ritual, taste natural Basque cider and take a trip back to our origins!

Would you like to enjoy a cider house but you don’t know how to get to one? This tour is the solution. We will pick you up in San Sebastian so that you can learn, with the help of our guide, the secrets of this thousand-year-old drink very closely linked to the Basque Country and its culture and gastronomy. You will visit the apple orchards, the farmhouse presses/stores, the cider-making areas, the cellars and, naturally, you will taste natural home-made cider as we Basques make it: in the bottle and through the ritual called "Txotx".

¡Txoootx! is a call to taste Natural Cider directly from the barrels while you enjoy a Traditional Cider House Menu. Through the Ritual of "Txotx" you will taste cider from different barrels in the cellars of our cider houses while you enjoy a traditional cider house menu. You will have free time to taste the tasty cider house menu.

Everyone tells their story based on what they know. We tell the history of the Basque Country with Basque natural cider as the central core idea; millennial and ancestral product, drink of our sailors and main motif of our landscape. The cider is also the creator of the Basque lagar farms, old factories built to produce large quantities of cider artisanally. We are proud of our roots and want to tell you so that we can enjoy our experience together.

Amazing value, got to see the full cider process and a working cidery that's over 500 years old, amazing food and more cider than you can drink. Great way to excape the city and explore the Spanish country side

We had a very special evening learning about traditional cider production and enjoying a first class 5 course meal whilst tasting cider direct from the barrels with the locals. Amaia was lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. The venue was large enough that 'social distancing' was easy and we felt very safe. We thoroughly recommend this experience.

Maite from start to finish was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The cider house was a very unique experience, definitely something you must do to appreciate the local Basque culture. Don't hesitate to book this tour!

Maite hizo todo lo posible para buscarnos una sidrería que en fin de semana es complicado y no defraudo nuestras expectativas. El menú muy rico y Maite estuvo en todo momento pendiente de nosotros. Experiencia recomendable

This is an easy way to have a cider house experience with pick up very close to the Old Town area and a short drive to a local cider house.

This tour was really great! I don’t often go on organized tours but I’m traveling solo right now so sprung for it. Izaskun was super knowledgeable about the cidery and told us all sorts of information about the area and culture. The food was top notch too! I’d highly recommend her as a guide!
