Thank you Gorkabj for a very special evening, you were an outstanding guide. Our expectations were exceeded with 6 incredible Pintxos stops and a very generous amount of food and wine. The perfect start to our trip in Basque Country learning all about the rich history of the regions and local food. This tour is definitely worth it as well as all the extra advice and information Gorkabj provided for the rest of our trip. Thank you Gorkabj! Andrew, Cate, Martha, Jack and Milli

Very nice to find your way in the old center of San Sebastián under the guidance of an enthusiastic local guide in the countless eateries. During the tour she told nice information about the old town and the various restaurants. A diversity of pinxtos tasted with different wines. Very nice experience to do this tour with others (unknowns), resulted in nice conversations.

This was a fabulous food toor through the old town of the city! Gonzalo, the guide, went above and beyond to show us all a good time! We also learned local history and culture, which was a bonus. I’d definitely recommend taking this on your first or second day in town. The guide was also accommodating of my seafood allergy.
