I am writing a review as an overall experience I have had with Basque tours. I have done Rioja wine tour, the San Sebastian Pintxo tour, as well as the Getaria wine tour where Basque tours takes you to a few towns and villages. I am going to copy paste this review to separate reviews on all the activities I did

Great experience. The Basque tours team are very knowledgeable about the city it’s history and it is clear when you’re out with them that they are known in Basque country. This gave us a feeling of safety and comfort as well as the added entertainment from having a knowledgeable source. We were treated like royalty wherever they took us. I asked for Jon to guide us on this tour however the team recommended Lide. Lide was amazing, embodied all the compliments I wrote above and more. We had a tour the next day and Lide was supposed to be our guide but they switched last minute to Jon due to my request initially. By that time I had taking a liking to Lide but was reminded during my our tour why I wanted Jon in the first place.

Guys I tell you; you can’t go wrong with Basque tours. This isn’t a cheesy tourist trap. Obviously everyone Basque tours introduces you to know you’re a tourist. The difference is that you do get exclusive access to the towns and villages in a way that seemed like you really need connections for. For example; Jon took us to a fishing town. There he showed us the aquariums where the restaurant we were going to have lunch in keeps their fish. Then he showed me the owner’s wine cellar (the restaurants in San Sebastian are you usually family owned and operated). This was a two storey room large with all kinds of pictures (shelves of wine obviously) from across the globe with pictures and memorabilia of the who’s who internationally. You don’t expect this kind of thing from these kind of tours, that personable super vip exclusive access all at once. I think that is a testament to the beauty of the Basque country and equally to the quality of the Basque tours team!

I requested for bars with terrace seating because I was not sure how the Covid situation will be. Juan brought us to 3 bars with tables already reserved for us. We had different kinds of pintxos which we would never have known or ordered had he not been with us. They were all soooo good! He also introduced us to Basque wine which we had too much of, I think. 😁
Juan explained each pintxo and wine we were having. He also told us about the history of San Sebastián and answered whatever questions we had.
Best of all, Juan was able to establish a relationship with us and the entire evening was a freewheeling discussion about Donostia, family and experiences.

After a long day of travel, we didn't to make any decisions on where to eat or navigate the endless Pintxos options in San Seb. In comes Basque Tours! Despite us having a late arrival to San Seb, Jon and Jani were able to accommodate a compressed Pintxos tour (with the same amount of food and drinks).

After getting to our hotel and within 15 minutes, my wife and I were out the door with Lide on an unforgettable experience around San Seb. She was absolutely fantastic in giving us a tour of Old Town and showing us some excellent food the town has to offer. She was incredibly personable, and it was great spending the afternoon with her. After the tour, she followed up with a number of other recommendations that we didn't have time to try but made it to the next day.

Can't recommend Basque Tours or Lide more for starting your trip in San Seb.

Hi Jason. As you now know, thats the great thing about Pintxos. Whether its a quick snack or a whole meal, there is always time for Pintxos and a drink. You are 100% correct, Lide knows the best places in town. Its great to hear that she provided you with an unforgettable experience. Many thanks for taking the time to review us.

This was the perfect way to experience the best Pintxos from several of the top Pintxos spots in San Sebastian. Juan, our guide, was the perfect combination of very personable and highly informative: he told us the history of Pintxos and their role in modern Basque culture, and also gave a history lesson about San Sebastian. I can't recommend this tour highly enough for anybody that loves to do a 'deep dive' into the connection between local cuisine and the history and culture that inspires it. *My one regret is that I wasn't in town long enough to experience one of the classes/events inside Mimo Bite as well - what an amazing place!

Nothing short of spectacular…. Jani was an superb tour guide. Her knowledge and history of San Sebastián was extremely educational.

A wonderful gastronomic experience and way to understand the Basque culture and their farm to table way of life.

We highly recommend this wine and pinxtos tour — a memorable evening that ended at a local bar meeting wonderful people - Jani knows everyone - her energy is contagious … we miss her already.

Our guide Lide gave us an unforgettable evening in San Sebastian.
The tour started at 6:30 PM and before we knew it it was 11:30 PM!
The bars and restaurants were fantastic, and so was the food and wine.
Very nice to get to know the city in a casual atmosphere.
Thank you for this unforgatble experience, what a fantastic night!
Thank you for everything.
We definitely will come back...

We were a party of 2 who were fortunate enough have Basque Tours provide us with a phenomenal experience to learn and explore the Basque region of Spain ( with a day trip across the border to France). We were able to meet Jani, Juan and Andy for 3 incredible days and 1 night of touring. We began with the pintxos with Jani where we sampled delicious pintxos and wine in various restaurants throughout San Sebastian. Although we just met Jani by the end of the evening it was like being out with a good friend! We learned so much from her about the Basque region and its incredible food delicacies! Each stop, we were amazed at the taste of the different foods and wines we were sampling! Needless to say by the end our bellies were full but it was so worth it! We will always remember this wonderful evening with Jani!

We had several tours with Basque Tours while in San Sebastian recently, including the Private Pintxos and Wine Tour in San Sebastian with Veronica. We also took the Basque Countryside and Coast Tour with Alvaro; and a tour of the French Basque area and of Lourdes with Andy. Each of the tours and experiences were fantastic. We had a wonderful time with each member of the Basque Tours team that we had the great pleasure to spend time with. They were each great guides and individuals, and made our time in San Sebastian very special, often going the extra mile to make our experience perfect!

We are already looking forward to another future opportunity to visit San Sebastián and will certainly call on Basque Tours again!

Our guide was Maellen (not sure of spelling) she was wonderful, so informative and hospitable. So glad we chose to do the tour with Basque language barrier, otherwise it might have been daunting. We even had a macaron from the original bakery company that created them for a royal wedding.

Usually we are DIY people. But this time during our visit to San Sebastian we decided to try a personalized tour. We were so glad we did. Our guide navigated us to the perfect pintxos and beverages. It could not have been better. Highly recommend! We did several outings with Basque Tours. They were all great. Would absolutely recommend and would use them again.
