Cider (named sagardo in Basque language, which means apple wine) is one of the most traditional and everlasting Basque drinks. The magic that involves its production (made in traditional Basque homesteads for centuries) can still be found in cider houses (Sagardotegis, in Basque language) where, apart from tasting the most traditional cider house menu, a guided tour of the apple tree area can be scheduled with us, and this way unveil every secret of this drink’s production. On this tour Hernani will be visited as well, a small village where the cider culture is displayed at its most and cider references can be found in every corner. Transportation and lunch are included in this tour, with free flow cider included during your meal!

Perfect day tour

Ruben was a wonderful driver, tour guide, and companion for our Basque Country cider experience! We loved our visit to Petritegi! A visit to a cider house is an absolute must if you travel to Donastia. We really enjoyed learning about the cider making process and history of cider in San Sebastián and the food was amazing!! Txotx!
Seasonal and rustic

It was so fun! We live in the USA and love cider in general but this was very unique experience. You learned about the process and get taste typical cider house menu and drink cider(unlimited!) from the barrel! All natural no sulfite(contains little but not added sulfite like other ciders that you can find in th USA) we loved it!
Get your cider on!

Had a great tour and a great guide! Ilanoha (not sure of spelling) our guide was well versed in the history of the region. She was receptive to our travel needs, respectful, and very accommodating. The food was delicious and plentiful. And the cider is not what is served in the U.S. as cider. It was not sweet, slightly tart, but light and quite pleasant. I highly recommend this tour!
great experience in long established cider house

Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The tour was informative even though we were there at probably slowest season. Lots of locals coming in for lunch is always a good sign. Great food but big servings and loved the experience of getting up and refreshing your drink direct from the spray huge barrels.
was ok

when tour guide picked us up didn't even tell us his name. Asked my husband to seat in the way back we thought he was picking up more people, no it was because he didn't want to remove papers on seat, which he did move but not happy about that. drove to cider house hardly spoke would have been nice to know things about area we were driving through. we got there just after 7 pm had a tour from cider house that was quite interesting then told had 40 min to wait. tour guide suggested a tour around area that would have been great just drove the way we came in and drove back without talking got back to cider house and still had 25 min wait. Food was OK considering the amount of people they have to serve. When tour guide brought us back to hotel didn't even get out of car. So no tip for him Hotel doorman opened the door for us. Would say need a guide with personality would help and don't get picked up til at least 7 or even later. Also it was over priced when you see what cider house meal and cab would have cost.
