Is this experiences suitable for children?
In the Basque Country, children are very much a part of the dining scene and we welcome children on most of our experiences. However, we recommend that for children under 12 years old that you choose the lunchtime pintxo tasting tour (starting at 12.30) which is much better suited for children.
