Basque Experiences on TV

Basque Experiences on TV!! Finally on line!!

My France with Manu is an Australian TV series on Channel 7. We had the pleasure of organising all the logistics and locations here in the the Basque Country last Autumn. Its also Manu’s first time catching something whilst being recorded!! Must have been the crew…..

We taught Manu how to cook a very traditional Basque dish, Squid in Ink Sauce!!  You cant beat catching, cooking and eating it all outdoors, by the sea!! All in all a great Basque Experience, we had a great time!! Here is one of the clips from the show!! Filmed in the old port of Getxo and with help from my mate Iñigo!!




Basque Gastronomy in a weekend!

Our world-famous gastronomy here in the Basque Country is all some guests need to come and visit!

We have been busy these past weeks showing our guests some of the fantastic produce and gastronomy the Basque Country has to offer.  A recent Basque Tour saw us help celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary, in Bilbao and in San Sebastian. We took in some of the best pintxos, best restaurants and a fantastic and indeed unique wine bodega, all right on our doorstep!

A private tour with chauffer driven transfers, staying at the best hotels in the country such as the Maria Cristina and the Castillo Arteaga. Dining at some of the best restaurants in the world (not my words… but those of  The 50 Best Restaurants…) in Mugaritz and Azurmendi, and a visit to the unique and indeed to one of our favourite places, not to mention the wine which is spectacular, Crusoe Treasure – Undewater Bodega right here in Plentzia!!

Indeed it was a short trip in the Basque Country but one packed with intense flavours, some of the best hotels one can find in some dramatic locations, and visits to the finest restaurants with world-class gastronomy.

This is what we at Basque Experiences do best, listen to our clients and create a bespoke, private Basque Tour so that our guests can make the absolute most of their sometimes limited time here. We can’t wait to accompany you on your visit here….
