Our local guide will began the tour by showing you through San Sebastian’s Old Town, providing you with a visual and verbal explanation of all things Basque, and preparing you for the meaning of your experience ahead.

Once you are armed with a firm understanding, it is time to jump on in and experience the Basque culture first-hand. We will leave Old Town and head to some of the most renowned food and drink bars in San Sebastian, where locals come to share stories, jokes, and of course plenty of food and local wine. The key ingredient to the Basque people’s food culture is pintxos, which are basically a variety of tapas unique to the region.

“We were the only ones on the tour which made it very intimate, during the tour we were shown a number of Pintxos we never tasted before. It was excellent to have a local perspective of where to go and what to try. Definitely hit up this tour, if you are limited by time as they bring you to the best places to try out local eats.”

“Tomasz was awesome and supper enthusiastic. You could tell he really had a love for San Sebastian's food and people. Great tour with good food and drinks.”

“I had no idea what to expect of the pintxos scene in San Sebastian but couldn't wait to explore it. Rather than diving in as a total rookie, we decided to take this tour, with Tomasz as our guide, which was fantastic; as someone who's lived in the town for several years, he knows the scene very well and was able to recommend the best bars, and the best pintxos, along with lots of great info about pintxos etiquette, local life in San Seb, and many other topics that we discussed along the way! A great start to your gastronomic visit, as after that you can go back, armed with more knowledge, and discover it for yourself. Plus Tomasz is lovely, friendly and funny (and even got some of our terrible puns. Offal/Awful!).”
