San Sebastián Food Tour: Pintxos and Wine

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Greet your guide in central San Sebastían then stroll through the gorgeous Gross neighborhood on the way to your first food destination. Listen as your guide explains the critically acclaimed culinary scene in San Sebastián and hear how dishes reflect layers of rich history and heritage.

    Stroll past majestic Michelin-starred restaurant and traditional taverns before arriving at your first delicious destination. Sample local specialties while sipping complimenting beverages and absorb the convivial atmosphere within each exuberant eatery. Venture to three distinctly different bars to see the stylistic varieties of pintxos; marvel at the creative flair in each and learn about the subtle nuances of the food.

    Bid your guide and group farewell in the third and final tapas bar, an conclusion point that leaves you perfectly placed to continue exploring the city independently.

    After our experience with Kris tonight, I'd say that you should not go to San Sebastian without going on a Pintxos tour. There are many pintxos and, much to my dismay, not enough time in the day or space in your stomach to try every...More
