What to expect
Meet your guide and small group in central San Sebastian midday, and set off by foot on a pintxo crawl through the city’s atmospheric old town. The streets here are packed with bars and restaurants, but knowing where to go for the freshest, most authentic bites is a locally acquired art. The itinerary changes daily to keep up with San Sebastian’s restaurant trends, but you can expect to visit about four to six different eateries, ranging from traditional taverns to sleek, avant-garde bars. With the help of your guide, learn how to order pintxos like a pro and choose the best items from the counter or menu at each spot. Sink your teeth into Basque favorites like charred steak, Iberico ham, line-caught baby squid, stuffed piquillo peppers, and fresh prawns, each bite-sized morsel often served speared to a slice of fresh bread. These tasty delights will go down easy with the help of regional ciders and wines paired to complement the bold flavors. At the end of the tour, you’ll have a satisfied stomach and the insider’s knowledge to ensure you never have a bad meal in town.

Wow!!!
Jul 2021 • Family
Our family of four (including two teen girls) all loved this tour so much!!!! Everything we ate and drank was absolutely delicious, and our guide Jani was fantastic..taking us to out of the way places and providing us with so much valuable and interesting insight into Basque food and culture. Not inexpensive, but worth it!!! Highly recommended!

What a super way to spend a lunch time in San Sebastian, Lordes our guide was supremey knowledgable and just as importantly, fun to be with. The pintxos were delicious and we now know a great deal more about what and what not to order.
This trip is a must for those who want to ge the most out of a short break in San Sebastian/Donostia.

Brilliant! If you come to San Sebastián don’t miss this
We had the MOST WONDERFUL time on the Pintxos tour with our guide Lourdes. It was friendly, fun and informative. Lourdes adjusted the tour to fit our needs and was so knowledgeable about the area, local history and the best bars in town. We could see from her interactions with people she passed in the street that she is much loved by the locals and we see why. We loved her too. The other guests were also great fun and we felt that we were having lunch with friends. Thank you Mimo and Lourdes, this has made our trip ❤️

We had an excellent time and couldn’t have been happier w our decision to book this tour. Hopefully if you go on this tour you’re lucky enough to get Elie as a guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and even gave us a list of everything we had and gave us a list of other pintxos bars to try and what they’re known for.

If you love food, you’ll love this tour.
Absolutely a must. This was a wonderful Pintxos experience. Our guide Lourdes was fabulous - knowledgeable about SS, it’s culture, it’s history and most of all the gastronomy. We savored food and wine that we wouldn’t have, had we been on our own.

Amazing Food & Wine Tour with an Even More Amazing Tour Guide!!!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We initially included San Sebastián in our Spain trip because we heard it had some of the best food. We decided to do a little exploring ourselves the 1st day of our stay and scheduled the tour for the 2nd day. The tour made all the difference! Our guide, Lourdes, was incredibly accommodating, knowledgeable, humorous! She walked us through old town while sharing the city’s history and culture. She knew exactly what to order at each bar and the food was excellent (and plenty). She paired the food at each bar with a local wine that was perfect for the meal. Also, for anyone with food restrictions, let your guide know. We didn’t eat pork, so Lourdes tailored the food she ordered to meet our needs. We’re usually very picky eaters, but our experience with Lourdes was so good that we cancelled our reservations at a Michelin Star restaurant just to schedule a second tour. I’m not joking, they promised they would take us to different places and we were in. IT WAS THAT GOOD. Will provide an update after the second tour.

Wonderful Experience!
Dec 2019
We went on a lunch time Pintxo tour with Lourdes. It ended up just being the two of us on the tour and we had an incredible time! She took us to some really amazing places and had us try some truly excellent food as well as some food we would have never eaten otherwise! Lourdes is amazing, I can't imagine having taken the tour with anyone else! And the best part was that she stayed in touch. She emailed us later with suggestions on other things to do in the area as well as some recipes for our favorite meals! Really cannot recommend this tour with her enough!

Unbelievable Pinxto Tour and evening better guide!
We enjoyed ourselves immensely here in San Sebastion but your trip was the highlight of the trip! The food was delicioso and on point at every stop. Your commentary and additional history of the city was great too. Even with catching a great game at Real Sociedad the food wins out for sure.

We will definitely be coming back as soon as we can. Lourdes was a great guide, personable, knowledgeable, and a great personality.

A Great Eating Experience in San Sebastian
Jan 2020
My partner and I had a really fun and interesting day with our guide Eli. We were taken to a number of pintxo bars to taste a variety of foods accompanied by wines. Eli has a passion for food, people and the city of San Sebastian. She is knowledgeable and willing to share her expertise. The pinxto hunting tour is delicious and fun. I would recommended it to anyone who loves to eat, wants to mingle with local people while learning about the Basque culture and the city of San Sebastian.
