Our group of seven friends can safely say that the sherry tasting with San Sebastian Foods was a highlight of our trip to San Sebastian. Andy is a highly knowledgable and engaging person and led us on an adventure through the delights of sherry and the complexities of the sherry-making process. Jon could not have been more helpful in arranging... More

We recently booked a Pintxo tour through San Sebastian Food. Our guide was Eli and we had a wonderful experience. While we had already been to several of the Pintxo bars on our trip, the tour gave us a much better insight into the food and culture of San Sebastian. Eli's knowledge of San Sebastian and the food ... along... More

Led by Eli (our very local guide) we visited 6 Pinxto bars/restaurants, sampled 11 different Pinxtos, a range of local wines and cider and finished up with the incomparable La Vina cheesecake. Along the way we learnt much from Eli about Basque culture, not just... More

From the first emails to and from San Sebastian Food to the final send-off after the tour was actually over they have been spot on. It is good to work with people that actually care about hosting you and your group, or just you alone. We worked with several people in the organization and from what I saw and felt... More

Great pintxos tour! We went to 6 bars and had more than 10 pintxos. They were all very good but my favorite was the veel cheeks in Borda Berri. All the local wines and drinks were excellent. Although i personally think this tour is a bit pricey I would still recommend this to everyone visiting San Sebastian for the first... More

I was not sure what to expect when I signed up for this tour but I'm really glad I did. Our guide, Lourdes, is a chef and grew up in the area so she is extremely knowledgeable. She is also kind and friendly so it felt like being shown around by an old friend. The food and drink choices were... More
