Come with us to San Sebastian’s pintxos headquarters, the Old Town, where we’ve carefully chosen the best bites the city has to offer for you.

Great experience

What a great time. Loved all the stops. Our guide Carlos was incredible and the other three couples delightful!!! Just the right size group. Tapas were excellent and it set us up well for the rest of our time in Spain. Tour of the old city was an extra bonus. Now we know!!! Highly recommend.
Great Introduction to Pintxos

Natalie was fantastic at introducing us to pintxos. She explained the history and cultural background of some of the food items we tried, as well as how to order them which helped us the next day when we did pintxos hopping on our own. Letting us try to pour the sidra was fun. As for the food, everything was good and portions were enough. We especially enjoyed the anchovy with blueberry jam and La Viña cheesecake! Natalie also taught us some Basque words. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore the San Sebastián food scene.
A must for a visit to San Sebastion.

We had a great time on this tour. It takes you to all the best local tapas spots and it’s a lot of different variety. Our group was really fun and invited us back to their flat even with the guide for drinks afterwards. Some Great memories. The cost is a little pricy but it’s 3 hour tour so seems fair. I think the group would have liked to have a little more alcohol, but maybe we were just really thirsty. The guide Gorka was the best part, very friendly, fun, energetic and smart! He was the best part and a really nice guy.
