What To Expect

Meet your guide and small group in central San Sebastian midday, and set off by foot on a pintxo crawl through the city’s atmospheric old town. The streets here are packed with bars and restaurants, but knowing where to go for the freshest, most authentic bites is a locally acquired art.

The itinerary changes daily to keep up with San Sebastian’s restaurant trends, but you can expect to visit about four to six different eateries, ranging from traditional taverns to sleek, avant-garde bars. With the help of your guide, learn how to order pintxos like a pro and choose the best items from the counter or menu at each spot.

Sink your teeth into Basque favorites like charred steak, Iberico ham, line-caught baby squid, stuffed piquillo peppers, and fresh prawns, each bite-sized morsel often served speared to a slice of fresh bread. These tasty delights will go down easy with the help of regional ciders and wines paired to complement the bold flavors. At the end of the tour, you’ll have a satisfied stomach and the insider’s knowledge to ensure you never have a bad meal in town.

A must do Pintxo experience with Vero!
trish_h, July 2023
The Pinxto tour with Veronica was fabulous! Not only were her choices of Pintxo and cheese cake bars excellent, she gave us all so much more historical information as she grew up near Old Town. I have done many tours in many cities, and this one with the fun and engaging Veronica was the BEST!
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Trish! Vero is a gem, like all our guides;) We hope it made you enjoy San Sebastian even more! hope to see you back at Mimo Bite the Experience

Fabulous afternoon
Kristi_S, May 2022
Guillermo was a fabulous guide! There were 6 of us on this tour, many with dietary restrictions and he handled it perfectly. The carnivores got their meat and the vegetarians for their vegetables. Every stop was wonderful and he explained how to navigate the crazy pintxos scene in San Sebastián. Highly recommended!
When food meets tradition
rnabraham, Nov 2019
Our visit was arranged by Almudena, a native guide who could take us to the best pintxo points. Difficult to say which was the best one, but the brocheta de rape y langostinos from Zumeltzegi was outstanding. The perfect match between pintxos and drinks was remarkable.
Great time very well spent!
Travelyn103, Oct 2019
We had a wonderful time with Almudena sampling a wide variety of pintxos, beverages and desserts during our lunch-time tour. She is a great guide with lots of local knowledge. You will come away from this tour with a greater understanding of pintxo culture and a very full tummy!!

Excellent tour led by the very knowledgable and entertaining Lourdes. The food and wine was fantastic
Delicious food tour with a great host.
Aran88, May 2019
We went on the food tasting tour over a busy holiday weekend and we had a great time, our host Alumudena, was able to get us into tiny little Pintxos bars. Everything she ordered was delicious and different, each Pintxo or drink had a story. We came away feeling full and slightly merry – as you should after these things

Rebecca T, May 2018
We did this tour with Veronica, she was amazing. It was worth every penny, and I recommend booking it at the beginning of your time in San Sebastian so you will know where you should eat the rest of the time you are there. She was very knowledgable and taught us about the food, culture, and customs. Everything we ate was just perfection, and the drinks paired very well. We brought our two little ones, and if your children will sit through several restaurants without an issue, it should be okay. I don't recommend bringing a stroller on this tour, we ended up using the baby carrier instead. Many of the restaurants were quite small and didn't have room for a stroller.

Kuang L, Mar 2017
This is an excellent tour with very efficiently arranged route. We went to four different restaurants and sampled 2-3 pintxos each with good local wines. Our guide grew up locally and was very knowledgeable about the local restaurant scene. In two and half hours we had both a satisfying lunch and a lot of knowledge about pintxos.
