We did this tour on our first night in San Sebastián. It should be the first thing anyone does! It taught us so much about the food/wine and Basque culture. Our tour guide, Natalia was bubbly, interesting and had grown up in San Sebastián. I’m sending my daughter and her friend on the same tour when they arrive on Friday!

This tour is a great way to learn about the history and architecture of the museum, as well as key works of art in the Museum’s collections. Miriam was fabulous! She knows art, architecture, history, and fascinating behind the scenes stories. We would definitely do this again. Highly recommend!

Lander was not only an excellent guide, but a great host. Two of us from UK joined 3 Dutch and 1 Australian. Lander chose 4 different bars, all really good, and suggested which Pintxos and wine select. As a group we all ‘clicked’ and really enjoyed the evening! Thank you.

Hector was a wonderful guide who is passionate about San Sebastian. He was able to mix in the history of the city as we went on our pinxto tour. I can feel Hector's passion about the city and the people there, this is one of the best things I have done in Spain.

Wonderful tour of 4 excellent bars serving pintxos and wines in San Sebastián. Great to also get a brief insight into the city’s history. Begonia was a knowledgeable and fun guide
