“I thought I knew all about San Sebastian pintxos – but Jon and his team gave me a whole new insight into the best new bars, the right things to order in the right places, and a host of insider pintxo tips. I owe him one!” - Conde Nast Traveller

“Discover the best pintxos Basque tapas bars in town on a dinner crawl with San Sebastian Food, our idea of heaven.” -ELLE magazine

Pintxos (Basque tapas) line every bar in San Sebastian’s famed Old Town, but knowing where to find the best ones is an art. While it’s hard to have a bad meal in town, knowing exactly where to go for the best, freshest, and most exciting pintxos takes local, insider knowledge. Do a night out in San Sebastian like a local, led by our friendly and knowledgeable Basque guides.

We dive straight into the culinary heart of the city for a night of eating and drinking unlike any you’ve ever experienced. From fresh prawns to line-caught baby squid to perfectly charred steak, the pintxo hunt changes nightly but always features a range of traditional spots and chic, avant-garde bars. Come thirsty, too, as we’ll be pairing each pintxo with the perfect pour, from cider to local whites and reds.

Our pintxo hunting tour comes highly recommended by the world’s authorities on travel: Conde Nast Traveller, Easy Jet, Vogue, Financial Times and many others. Stylist Magazine says "There’s no better overview of the city’s food scene".

“Amazing tours and amazing company” From beginning to end San Sebastian Food was an amazing company to deal with. I arranged 4 days of private tours with them for my birthday, for myself and my family, and every tour was brilliant (we did the Pintxos bars, Rioja Uncovered, Pintxos masterclass, wine pairing, and dinner at Arzak). The guides were amazing, such great people. They all go over and above what you'd expect and they made our trip just perfect.

Michelle T via Trip Advisor (2016-02-03)

We took a private pinxtos tour because we are a family of four with two children ages 5 and 6 and completely unfamiliar with the pintxos hopping culture of San Sebastián. We were immediately put at ease by our kind guide who was born and raised in the old town and brought her children back to be raised in the family friendly environmen. Our guide knew the best item to eat at each bar, and since she is from the fishing community, she was greeted with great gusto at every bar we went to. we were introduced in like enthusiasm so that we felt as if we had been folded into the scene as old family friends of a local. We learned to throw our napkins on the ground and how to order and settle the tab. We learned some history of the town and how to orient ourselves. We didn't need a selfie stick because the guide took plenty of family pictures throughout the night
