Full description

Prepare to be immersed in the rolling mountains of Basque Country for an unforgettable cheese experience at a family-owned Idiazabal cheese farm. Experience a fun, dynamic, and interactive cheese-making process led by a local shepherd. Taste cheese paired with local wine or cider in a traditional Basque txoko lounge. Learn all about Idazabal cheese, a type of cheese only allowed to be made in the Basque Country. Discover how it's made, and why it's so important that it comes from sheep grazing in the green valleys of the Basque Country.

Following the cheese tasting, continue on to San Sebastian for a walking tour of the city to learn about its history and magic. Listen to fascinating stories about the kings and queens and other important characters who have visited the city throughout the centuries and discover hidden secret spots only locals know about.
