Full description

Join a curated San Sebastian pintxos tour to discover the city’s best pintxos bars in the old town while you learn the local ways of dining out and how to enjoy the Basque way of eating (and drinking).

Begin the evening in true local style with some crisp local cider and delicious seafood pintxos. Move on to acorn-fed Iberian ham, as well as the local variety. Taste the best anchovies in the country, the most delicious local beef, seared local cod, suckling pig, and more.

Highly recommend joining this Pintxos & Wine tour when travelling to San Sebastián for the first time! Our local guide, Natalie, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The tour was very organized and well-paced. It was absolutely hassle-free (we literally skip-the-line at every stop!), and the local food and drinks were phenomenal!

Really great way to experience the Pintxos bars without having to think about where to go and what to order. The tour was very informative and Hector was a great host who knows so much history of San Sebastian and can advise you on places to go for the rest of your stay. The price isn't cheap but you get a fair amount of food and drink and you will no doubt meet some lovely people along the way!

Thank you Gorkabj for a very special evening, you were an outstanding guide. Our expectations were exceeded with 6 incredible Pintxos stops and a very generous amount of food and wine. The perfect start to our trip in Basque Country learning all about the rich history of the regions and local food. This tour is definitely worth it as well as all the extra advice and information Gorkabj provided for the rest of our trip. Thank you Gorkabj! Andrew, Cate, Martha, Jack and Milli
