Our guide, Veronica, provided us with a great selection of amazing Pintxos and good wine to sample, lots of helpful and interesting information on Basque culture and cuisine, and she had a delightful, friendly, upbeat personality that helped bring this diverse group of strangers together for a few hours as if we had always been friends. Oh, and it was a perfect group size!

Great way to try new things!
AnneMarie_M, June 2023
We had a great time with Guillerrmo on our tour. We also had a pretty good group that got along and had fun together. As a pescatarian, I was happy to be accommodated with delicious seafood or veggie tastes. I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to be shown things they may not otherwise taste and a great way to learn you're way around Pintxo restaurants.
Sharon_G, May 2023
As a shy solo traveler, I have trouble getting right up to the bar ordering food. This was an excellent way to try new things and meet nice people. Sandra was awesome, sweet and informative! Choose the later slot because when I went a lot of things weren’t open yet. It was still great for me but not as lively until the end.
Great overview of the city and great tips on the food and the options.
Rick_W, May 2023
The food we sampled was great and we went back a few days later to some of the same location to try some of the other options. Would do the tour again.
Super night out

Pinxtos in San Sebastián
Larry_Y, May 2023
Our guide Veronica was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and pleasant. She led us to some great Pinxto Bars where the dishes and drinks were a nice mix, prepared especially for our group. By the end of the evening, the 12 members of our group had become good friends, and we had enjoyed a wonderful evening together.
Great introduction to San Sebastián pinxtos !
Beth_D, May 2023
We had a wonderful evening with our guide Sandy and 4 other couple from around the world. It was a great way to discover San Sebastián, we enjoyed ourselves so much we all stayed out together after you wine and pintos tour ended!
A Wonderful Experience
Joe_H, May 2023
Veronica was an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable about San Sebastian, Basque culture, and especially pintxos. She grew up in San Sebastian in a “gastronomic” family, speaks (and teaches history in) Basque, and I think knows every one of the 140 pintxo bars in the Old Town area. And, they all know her! In addition to being a guide, she goes out with a group of her own each week to sample and rate pintxos around town. Veronica customized our pintxo experience to the expressed tastes of our group of four (e.g., local sausage, seafood, Basque sauces, cheeses, and a special local cheesecake for dessert). Each of the five bars we went to included a different glass of regional wine. We all felt well wined and dined at the end of the tour.
Excellent experience
Peter_v, Apr 2023
The food, drinks, guide and company were excellent. Certainly recommendable for any visitor to the Basque area.
It ended too soon
Cheryl_S, Apr 2023
Fantastic introduction to San Sebastián. Veronica was a humerous and knowledgeable guide. We had amazing wine and food!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for the review!
Excellent and highly suggested to do
Kara_W, Apr 2023
Our guide Veronica was great along with stops she chose for us. The pairing of pinxtos with the chosen drink excellent. The history lesson along the way was informative in an entertaining way. I highly suggest taking this tour when you first arrive to learn how to order pinxtos.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for the review! For sure, taking the tour the first evening is very useful
A must do when you’re in San Sebastián
Justin_T, Apr 2023
I had an amazing time with Sandra (along with my group mates Carolle and Vincent)! Sandra brought us to some pretty cool bars, ordered food that I would not have thought to order, and made us feel welcomed. She had great recommendations and would definitely go on a gastro tour with her again. 10/10 would recommend!
