Overview
Figuring out where to eat the best pintxos (Basque tapas) in San Sebastián can be tough, especially for first-time visitors. Don’t go it alone; instead, let a local guide show you where to eat, while providing cultural and historical context—as well as recommendations—you wouldn’t get if exploring independently for a relaxed introduction to Basque cuisine.
Highlights
  • Immerse yourself in the pintxos culture of San Sebastián
  • Benefit from the insider insight of your local, English-speaking guide
  • Visit award-winning pintxo bars you might not otherwise have found
  • Sample six pintxos, plus txakoli wine or cider, during the course of the tour

Just another glowing review for Carlo. He’s a champion, very knowledgeable and speaks very good English (among other languages). We enjoyed every minute of the tour and the follow up email with a recap and suggestions was very helpful.
