Such a great experience! Carlo was lovely, very knowledgeable and very helpful! He recommended some amazing pintxos and encouraged us to try some we wouldn’t have picked on our own and they were of course amazing! He even sent a follow up email with lots of food and activity recommendations for the rest of our trip in San Sebastián. Couldn’t recommend him more! Thank you for a great tour :)
