Overview
More
Your first taste of txakoli, the sight of a bar filled with tapas, the smell of fresh olive oil being pressed, the feel of thinly sliced jamon iberico between your fingers...your senses are sharper at the source. We believe travel should be unique and personal, but most of all, it should be authentic. Explore a culture through its food and drink, its producers and chefs and the love and "mimo" they put into all their creations. Since we were founded in San Sebastian, Spain, in 2009, we strive to bring the mimo to visitors who want to immerse themselves in local food culture. Live the Mimo experience on our culinary tours, at our gourmet shops in San Sebastian (San Sebastian Food) and Sevilla (Mimo Sevilla), as well as in our luxury cooking school located in the Hotel Maria Cristina in the centre of San Sebastian. Our team of locals is passionate about sharing their culture, offering a taste of its delicious dishes, and welcoming you into the Mimo family.

The pace of the tour was leisurely and the restaurants/bars were pretty close to each other. It was a great tour!

I’m not certain. You’re best bet is to contact them directly. I eat a vegetarian diet when at home, but when traveling I’ve been including fish. My sense is, given that most pinxos are seafood or meat, that you’d have fewer... More

I am sure that it is not recommended for children; tour is directed to adults and mature mind teens interested in regional history and evolution of Basque Country .
