The BEST, freshest pinxtos and the most fun we had in San Sebastian!
biancagE2692BW, 12-07-2022
Eskerne and Discover San Sebastian were the culinary--AND personal--highlight of our trip to Basque country! First of all, she knows EVERYONE in town--they all call her alcalde (Spanish for "mayor"), so we met loads of people on our tour of yumminess. And the pinxtos were incredible. In fact, she is the only guide that can get you hot/fresh out of the oven pinxtos (otherwise you will get served from the display cases, where items have cooled down and aren't at their peak freshness/temperature).

Most importantly, she tailors her tour to your personality and likes/dislikes/allergies, so my husband got to indulge in his meaty faves like torched foie gras and a fall-off-the-bone pork, while I got to enjoy the yummiest, freshest vegetable and seafood pinxtos (just-out-of-the-fryer shrimp, the most delicious gazpacho, garlicky mushrooms, pulpo with potato, and flash-fried white asparagus with aioli, for example).

We also got loads of great restaurant recommendations from Esky and she helped us plan the rest of our time in San Sebastian and in the nearby villages. They don't call her the "mayor of San Sebastian" for nothing. Do NOT miss this delicious, informative and fun-filled adventure.
Great company and food

Eskerne is amazing! She showed my mother and I around San Sebastian’s old district. We tried unique and delicious tapas. She has a great relationship with owners/staff so service was always fast and food was always fresh. She is also very charming and by the end we all wanted to hang around with her some more
Superb experience- a must do!

We thoroughly enjoyed our San Sebastián history and culinary tour with Eskerne. We loved seeing some of the famous landmarks and learning about the history and culture of the Basque people. Eskerne was such a charming, friendly and well informed guide who skillfully chose the best pintxos, cider, txakoli and red wine for us to taste on the tour.. not to mention the best cheese cake!! Thanks so much for a thoroughly enjoyable experience Eskerne!
AMAZING Pinxtos Tour

We had the most amazing pinxtos experience in San Sebastián with Eskerne!!! She made sure every person in the group had a pinxto they liked at each place and was funny, friendly and knowledgeable. We did the tour on our first day in San Sebastián and felt much more comfortable knowing where/how to pinxto hop around Old Town. She even sent us an email after the tour detailing all the places we went and what pinxtos we got, along with additional recommendations and their best pinxtos- we made it to most of the recommendations during the rest of our trip and they were all delicious :) We even ran into Eskerne a couple days later and had a drink with her then. Eskerne’s tour is a must do if you’re in San Sebastián!
Eskerne loves le gente, la cuidad y la comida !

Our small tour was hosted by Eskerne who was high energy, great fun and very engaging. She brought us to five different pintxo bars where we tried squid, scallops, tuna, anchovies, mushrooms and egg based tapas. We also tried local cider and local whites ( some sparkling) and reds! All delicious. Eskerne was a great host and guide through the tour and also gave us a list of other bars and restaurants which has given us the courage to explore some of these old town bars and try different fair. The group was fun and by the end we were all chatting and even went for a drink after with an Australian couple. Lovely to meet like minded people on tour. Well worth booking!
