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.

I did the combo tour with my wife and we had one other couple with us. The price we got was much less than the ones offered n our hotels. The first two hours was informative and included a nice walk around town - we got very lucky with the weather for March. It was a glorious day. Keith doesn't... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our San Sebastian Walking Tours in Donostia-San Sebastian with Keith. We were lucky to have Keith to ourselves so it was a very personalised tour. The history/pintxo tour was a great blend of fun, food. wine and history. Keith gave us tips on enjoying the wonderful pintxo through the eyes of a local. We... More

We a party of 4 joined 2 other people on this wonderful tour of San Sebastian. Keith was able to give us a very knowledgable history of the Basque people , their customs, and their most current political situation. He explained the geographical area that encompasses the Basque region including that the area goes into France. His tour of the... More

We did the Pintxos tour, it was amazing. It was an intimate group Keith our tour guide, my husband & I and a single lady. We loved our tour, Keith was so informative, the places he took us too were places we wouldn't have found by ourselves and he suggested places for us to visit throughout our stay. From memory...

It was a good walking tour but expensive. I was disappointed after reading the glowing reviews. Perhaps my expectations were too high,. He had a great knowledge of prehistory, but at €30 I think I could do itmysrlf. I wouldn't ask friends who stay to paythat again. It was barely 2 hours. Perhaps winter is a difficult tines.

I am disappointed with your review of my City Sightseeing tour. As I remember you could not make the reservation the normal way, so I took a chance to go into town in hopes that you would show with no reservation on very short notice. I also recall, that you were 30 mins late for the start time of the... More

Keith does a fantastic job of explaining so many aspects of San Sebastian, the Basque Country and the Basque people. Our tour was a great mix of history, political insight mixed with the pintxos and wine tour. I dont think there is anyway we would have learnt as much, eaten such fantastic food or come to understand something of the... More

Our group from Seattle loved the tour Keith gave us of beautiful San Sebastian!! Since we were mostly interested in the historical and cultural insights into the city, we skipped the pintxos to allow for more sight-seeing time. Keith did a fantastic job of weaving the history into the different various stops of our tour, and at the end we... More

I'm an American who lives and works in San Sebastian, and when a group from our US office came to visit we booked a tour with SSWT (Keith). I thought it would be a great way for them to see significant landmarks in the city, and learn a little about the history. I was right, they absolutely loved the time... More
