Description: As an ENGLISH SPEAKING EXPAT, who now lives here, I know what information...
As an ENGLISH SPEAKING EXPAT, who now lives here, I know what information is useful, be it PINTXOS, how to Pintxo, Restaurants or outlying attractions. I offer one of the best Pintxo tours as well as my City Sightseeing Tour. To do Pintxos right, you really need someone on the inside, someone that knows where to go on the particular day you are here and can help you get the most out of what is available. I help you explore flavors, but nothing over the top, I am very traditional in my selection of local Pintxos and pair them with local wines. I do show you the most modern bars as well. My tours are designed to give my guests a great head start on this area, from the History and Traditions, to the PROPER way to eat PINTXOS (Tapas). I show you this city with an open point of view and make you feel like a visiting family member or friend, so that after the tour is over you feel more comfortable getting around the city and looking deeper into the areas that you are most interested in. I normally keep my groups small, so it almost feels like a private tour (usually under 8 people). If you would like a private tour please contact us for prices. My tour is best done on the first morning that you are here.

What an excellent start to our stay in San Sebastián - Kieth, our guide, introduced us to the history of San Sebastián and then we had a wonderful few hours sampling pintxos and drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting San Sebastián- thank you Kieth!

We spent a lovely morning with Keith getting a brief history and great overview of the beautiful city. Keith either took us or pointed out the must see places, it allowed us to really get the most of our 3 day visit to San Sebastián. For me being an American it was great having a guide who was fluent in... More

My wife and I did the Pintxos/Tapas tour in inclement weather in October 2014. One word: Fantastic!!! What a great way to get to know the story around the Basques, see some of the sites of San Sebastian up close and to experience and better understand the whole culture around pintxos. Keith did a terrific job of taking the time... More

Spent the day with Keith in San Sebastián. Did the walking tour in the morning and the Pinxtos crawl in the afternoon. Wow, wow, wow. Had the best time. Keith's knowledge of the area and the history is amazing - we learnt so much. Loved the fact we walked the new/oceanfront and the old. At midday we moved onto to... More

We took the pinxtos tour with Keith and were abolutely delighted with the 2 hour walk that he took us on. We visited 4 bars and ate some delicious pinxtos and drank excellent wine. When Keith says that you will judge croquetas forever from what we tasted he was 100% correct. If I ever find a better one I will... More

English spoken here! Keith is an expat from Alabama. We did the walking and pintxos tour. We absolutely loved this! Keith, our guide, caters to small groups such as ours. No flag waving here! 1st off, the walking tour, which gave us insight into the history and culture of the city, without us going into a history coma. This tour... More
