Owner description: The most authentic and economically priced All-Inclusive type Pintxo/Tapas Tour or our City Sightseeing and Cultural Tour given in English by an Native ENGLISH SPEAKING EXPAT. Let me use my 18 years of teaching experience to help you understand this unique region and culture. I know what information is useful, from why you are not in Spain to the difference between tapas and pintxos, how and when to do things, how to pay, where to eat and so on, plus tons of other restaurants and outlying attractions. I offer the best walking tour in town. 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 Bars and I 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.

We booked Keith's walking tour of the main sights at quite short notice based on trip advisor reviews and found Keith to be very friendly and full of information. We'd already explored the city a bit on our own, but Keith managed to find some new things to show us. We subsequently booked the pintxos tour for the following day after discussing various complicated dietary requirements. Again, Keith made us feel very welcome and managed to accommodate our requirements without adversely impacting the tour. He took some of the mystery out of the whole pintxos etiquette, so we'll certainly feel more confident negotiating our way around the bars on our own. Great choice of bars and pintxos, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

On our first day of our first visit to San Sebastian, my wife and I kind of just wandered around, having never before experienced the city or the Basque culture. Fortunately, the next day we were met at our hotel by Keith, an American now living in San Sebastian, of San Sebastian Walking Tours and, for the next several hours, we learned all about San Sebastian and experienced "pintxos". Visiting five pintxo bars in the Old Part, each known for some favored pintxos, we were treated to varied tastes and styles, all quaffed with delicious local wines and cider. It is a tour not to be missed. Our only regret was that we did not take it on our first day in San Sebastian because, afterwards, we no longer felt like tourists.

First- San Sebastian is a stunning city to visit!!! San Sebastian Walking Tours has been a wonderful company to work with during our time here in San Sebastian. We loved touring the Old Part with their amazing knowledge of the best restaurants and pintxo bars. Because we lack the language skills and understanding of the cultural ways of life, coming into the city was intimidating to explore on our own. But having the guided tour at the beginning of our time here proved to be a smart investment because of all that we learned from SSWT during our tour. On top of the extensive information we learned about Basque Country and all it has to offer (they even gave us tips on our trips outside the city & the sights we should see!), we totally loved our tour guides, Keith and Sandra, who are fluent in both Spanish and English. We highly recommend San Sebastian Walking Tours if you are looking to experience the best food and have access to the wealth of information that only locals know!
