Bilbao has earned its status as a culinary destination, and you'll discover why on this half-day gastronomical adventure. Board a motorcoach and enjoy the sights as you drive to Old Town, in the heart of city. Here you'll embark on a guided pedestrian tour that makes the most of this medieval enclave and its culinary hotspots. Stroll past such architectural highlights as the Cathedral of Santiago, the Gothic Church of San Anton and the lively outdoor Plaza Nueva. Peer into international cheese shops, tempting chocolaterias, fragrant bakeries and, of course, the tapas bars. The showpiece is Ribera Market, the largest indoor food market in Europe, a cornucopia of the freshest produce, meats, fish and delicacies. From here, drive to a local txoko, a typically Basque gastronomical society, where you'll enjoy a cooking class and a scrumptious lunch of the foods prepared during your culinary presentation. Satiated, relax on the ride back to port.

Special Notes:

Please note that the lunch the guest will eat will be prepare on advance by the chef as the food they will be cooking will not be sufficient for everybody.
