Forget museums, textbooks, and culture lessons, one of the best ways to understand Basque culture is through its food. Join this San Sebastian tour to taste (and drink) your way through the Basque territories with a local guide and learn the most important facts about culture and history.
Pinxtos: Spanish snacks popular in Basque country; more or less Basque tapas. Now we've got the definition out of the way, time to get our eat on! Journey through San Sebastian with a local guide on this culture and tapas tour and learn all about the culture of Basque country through its delicious flavors and experiencing the city first-hand.
Our San Sebastian walking and food tour will start with a wander through the Old Town, absorbing the atmosphere and learning the need-to-know about the culture and history of the city. It’s imperative that you know the background of what you’re about to experience; for instance, do you know what a sagardotegi or sociedad gastronomica is? Not to worry, your local guide will tell you all you need to know, and more!
Once you’re a master of Basque culture, it’s only appropriate that we dive right in and immerse you in the culture of bars, socialising, and pintxos! We’ll take you out of the Old Town to the bars where locals not only enjoy their pintxos, but also relax and meet with friends. We’ll taste some of the most important flavours of Basque cuisine (including some dishes prepared by pintxo competition winners!), as well as local wines. The pintxos we will present to you are the best reflection of modern Basque gastronomy: they preserve the heritage of tastes and flavours of Basque cuisine while the presentation will be like a modern piece of art (tasty, tasty art...).
You’ll finish this San Sebastian city tour full of knowledge with a taste of delicious pintxos. And always remember: pintxos are not only something that you eat, but the culture of eating them is also a way of socialising and a way of life for the locals - so dig in!
