Eski was very entertaining and informative...she is obviously a legend in the streets of San Sebastion, greeting friends and acquaintances frequently. Eski was able to provide me with an Iberico ham experience which was excellent.
A must do!

Lovely group. Esky was a delightful host. The places she took us to were great, tapas were really good,
Best Value Pintxos Tour in San Sebastián!
MARIA_O, Jun 2022
I have tried three pintxos tours during my stay and this tour with Eskerne is without doubt the best. You are given a choice of pintxos and drinks at some of the restaurants which I really liked plus the choice of restaurants was outstanding. Eskerne Is a brilliant hostess, incredibly informed & friendly, she has a great relationship with the various restaurants. Despite how busy they were, she always managed to be served quickly. The pintxos themselves were delicious. It can be intimidating going to these bars but Eskerne showed us how it’s done. Great value for money, recommend 100%!
A must…

This tour was a highlight of our trip to San Sebastián. Eskerne, our tour guide was fabulous! She took us to wonderful local restaurants we never would have discovered ourselves and the food we had was delicious (as were the local drinks). We learned a lot about the history of the area and best of all we had great fun. Thank you Esky!!
Amazing experience - must do!
Monica_F, Mar 2022
I can’t say enough good things about this experience! Esky (our tour guide) was so full of energy and knowledge! Such a great introduction to the city and the food scene. Esky was amazing at creating friendships by the end of the evening. She also helped with recommendations for the rest of the weekend. Truly a wonderful experience - I considered booking a 2nd night in a row. Do not hesitate to book - such a great experience! 2 thumbs up and a cheers!
Best way to experience Pintxos

We had an amazing night experiencing the local Pintxo bars. The food was incredible and our host Eskerne made the night a wonderful memory for us. She was knowledgeable and even introduced us to the owners as we hoped from bar to bar. Delightful. Highly recommended.
