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. « less

Three of us participated in this wonderful tour the 2nd day of our trip. We were in a group of 9 total, which facilitated us becoming fast friends (and met up with later in the week). Keith is amazing! He has a great balance of presenting enough information so you understand the context, but he keeps things moving so you... More

We had a wonderful time, and it was great way to start our visit to Donostia! We actually had a pretty good feel for the town afterwards. There were 9 in our tour group, and we all got to know each other very well over our tour. Everyone was fun. The pintxos that Keith selected for us were really new... More

We had combo tour with Keith and small group of 5 people. It was aprox. 2 hours of Basque/Donostia history and other 2 hours of Basque cusine. History part was quite sketchy and with jumps for 200-300 years however modern chronicle was informative and very interesting. Culinary part of the tour was great, we've visited 5-6 bars with big selection... More

Having done several tours like this before, some good some average, we were intrigued what this would be like. Thankfully this was a good one! Keith the tour guide is American and our first thought was whether we were making a mistake taking a food tour in San Sebastian with someone who wasn't a local. This turned out not to... More

This is a great way to find out about pintxo's and where to find the best ones in San Sebastián. The tour guide Keith was great and very knowledgeable and paired up each pintxo with a great wine or cider. Would definitely recommend if you're visiting

We booked this tour with Keith very last minute but it was the best thing we could have done! Keith was very informative, friendly and knowledgeable about the tradition of pintxos in San Sebastián. We sampled food and wine we never normally would have tried and loved every bit of it! Thank you Keith for introducing us to such a... More

Keith has really considered how to best introduce Basque culture through our taste buds. Delicious and informative--what could be better?

We did this tour the first day we were in San Sebastián and loved it! We got to try different Pintox, local beverages and also learn about the art of Pintox and the local etiquette. We would have been very intimated ordering Pintox without doing this tour! Great guide, very friendly and a great way to meet people!
