Jon was an amazing guide. He puts together such a thoughtful journey, tracing the quality ingredients from the market to the pinxtos bars...and helps you taste the pinxtos's evolution from simple snack to gastronomic delight! He's passionate and friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended. Earra!
Best intro to food, history, culture of San Sebastián

Fantastic evening - John was super knowledgeable and friendly! The small group size was perfect, and we tasted a great variety of plates and drinks. It was very fun to learn about Basque culture, clubs, history, and the old city of San Sebastián as we walked between stops! Could not recommend more.
Best tour ever!

We had a great time with Jon. He had come highly recommended through our contacts at London Restaurant Festival, who used him on a tour to San Sebastián with a celebrity chef. Communication was excellent via WhatsApp and the meeting point so easy to find.

We normally try to book a food tour on our first night but Jon was only able offer the following evening. This meant we revisited 2 places we had stopped by already. However this was not an issue, as in the first place we had something we would never had thought to order and the second (the most famous place to get cheesecake) he served in a way that changed the flavour and boosted the experience - the perfect way to finish the tour.

The tour starts in the underground market for some delicious snacks, before moving to a few Pintxos bars to try various local delicacies. Some more challenging than others but our group was happy to try everything and it was all delicious. GO WITH HIS RECCOMENDATIONS

Food was paired with cider or wine and there was not a single bad dish.

Jon is great fun, he is so excited to share his culture and infectious in his love of all things Basque.
