    Parte Vieja
    Stop: 3 hours
    San Sebastián (known as Donostia in Basque) is a city renowned worldwide for its gastronomic tradition. Without doubt the unrivalled “Star” and featured in every bar is the Pintxo. The picturesque old town (Parte Vieja) is completely packed with Pintxos bars — so many that knowing where to go and what to order can be completely overwhelming. We will take you to the very finest pintxo bars that visitors are unlikely to discover on their own and we will suggest the best pintxo in each bar and the most suitable drink to accompany it, chosen from Cider, Txakoli (Basque white wine) or red wine. From our meeting point we will visit the Old Town of San Sebastian where you will learn about Basque traditions and customs. You will visit bars off the normal tourist trail, eating and drinking like locals do.

Insider experience!

Absolutely insider knowledge of the city and the food. A different drink and tapas at each place with your choice given much weight after recommendations from our host. Food was fabulous!

Must do food tour in San Sebastián
This is a must do food tour when you are in San Sebastián! Eskerne knows all the best spots and all the best pintxos. She guides you around the Old Town showing offering history and guidance along the way. She also provides great recommendations for other restaurants and is available and communicative before and after the trip, which is great especially if you are flying solo!

Experience San Sebastián’s flavors with a knowledgeable gracious host
Jul 2021 • Couples
A delightful evening traveling through the flavors and history of San Sebastián. Eskernè attended to our food preferences and also inquired about food allergies. At each location, we enjoyed a pintxo and a glass of wine or local cider. Pouring the cider is part of their tradition. Whether you are a food expert or just would like a guide through San Sebastián’s food scene, this is THE tour for you!

We had a super fun time with Eskerne! She took us to lovely pintxo places and we tasted the best cheesecake in the world!! Eskerne is intuitive and makes sure you have the best time based on your preferences. She is very knowledgable about the food and has so many stories to share. We highly recommend this tour :)

Great way to eat like a local in San Sebastián!
We had a really fun and entertaining evening with Eskerne. She was extremely personable and made us feel part of the local community as everyone in town seemed to know her! We went to 5 different pintxos bars where she recommended different dishes based on our tastes paired with local drinks. In addition to the great culinary experience, she was great company and keen to share her knowledge of the local culture and history. Would highly recommend this tour!

A must-do in San Sebastian
Jun 2021
I have traveled to multiple different cities throughout Europe and have gone on various food (and other types) of tours. This pintxos tour with Eskerne in San Sebastian was absolutely the best tour I have been on. I would recommend learning the proper way to eat pintxos from a local regardless (because it's such a unique culture), but Eskerne went above and beyond what you could ever expect from a tour guide.

She was extremely knowledgeable about the history, culture, and food in her city of San Sebastian, but more importantly, she made the tour so engaging and a lot of fun. I attended with my girlfriend and we met another couple on the tour as well, and we bonded with them and Eskerne immediately because of her tremendous people skills and ability to form connections. On top of the food tour itself, Eskerne helped us plan almost all of the rest of our trip by giving us incredible recommendations in the area. My girlfriend and I ended up liking San Sebastian the most out of the cities we visited during our trip, and it was thanks to Eskerne's excellent hospitality. Ultimately, this tour will give you the genuine and authentic feel of the city.

This tour is the reason we all travel
We all want to escape our day to day and find ourselves in a spontaneous adventure with locals and come back with stories we can tell people for the rest of our lives.

This is your entry ticket into that experience.

You can either book this tour and dive head first into the night life and culture of San Sebastián or you can spend your trip waiting in lines, ordering pintxos wrong, and missing out on the experience you really wanted.

Eskerne will show you what you’re looking for.

I would do it again just so I can hang out with Eskerne! But also there was no way to hit up all pintxos bars in one go.
Jun 2021 • Couples
Hands down one of the BEST experiences I’ve ever had. I usually like to start my trips with a tour — this way, I get the lay of the land, figure things out spatially, historically, and gastronomically, so that I can further figure out / modify the rest of the trip. That was the intent of this tour but my boyfriend Jordan and I peaked too soon on this trip. Eskerne’s tour (day 1 in San Sebastián) left us wanting MORE — more pintxos per Eskerne’s suggestion, more history, more time with this super energetic gastronomist who treated us like family. We navigated the Basque/Spanish town with more confidence than if we hadn’t gone on the tour (Eskerne gave us MANY tips and essential Basque phrases). Our original txakoli vineyard tour fell through but Eskerne came to the rescue by sharing her connection. Jordan and I became friends with our tour mates (another couple) because Eskerne is such a great connector and we ended up hanging out with our tour mates for the rest of the trip.

I highly recommend booking one (or several) tour(s) with Eskerne. You’ll thank yourself.

Great experience - highly recommended
Jun 2021
Eskerne was an excellent guide. She’s an award winning culinary professional and passionate about ensuring her guests experience the very best of what the San Sebastián pintxos has to offer. We went to five different restaurants over a three hour period, where she matched my food preferences with a selection of local cider and wines. I had more than enough to eat and drink by the end of the night. It’s difficult for me to choose a favourite because they were all so good, including the local speciality of pig’s ear - try it, you might be surprised how tasty it is - although there are plenty of more traditional alternatives as well.
Eskerne has great local knowledge and a pleasure to spend time with. If you’re in San Sebastián and want eat the best pintxos, book this tour.

Incredible Pintxo Tour with Eske!
Nov 2020
Eske was my guide and she was excellent - the best tour guide I've ever had! Since we did our tour during COVID times, many of places that usually are open and bustling were unfortunately closed. Despite this, Eske was prepared and brought me to 5 different pintxos places in the old town area - each of which did not disappoint! My favorite pintxo was surprisingly the dish with setas (mushrooms). I did not expect it to be my favorite (especially because everything else was so good), but Eske convinced me to try it, and I am glad that I did. Not only was Eske extremely knowledgeable, a great conversationalist, and answered all of my questions, but she was very flexible in her tour, and gave me options of at each pintxos place. In addition to the food, I learned a lot about the history and geography of San Sebastián. I'm very lucky to have had the experience. Make sure you take her tour!
