Wow! What a fantastic tour. I didn’t know what to expect when my wife chose this activity. It was a wonderful experience. Esther taught us about pintxos, wines, pairings, and the best way to order . Her choices were great. We tried multiple dishes we would never have chosen off the menu. The anchovies and mackerel were a wonderful surprise of flavor. Her commentary on the history and buildings of old town added to the great evening. I hated for the evening to end. Esther followed up with an email detailing the pintxos we ate and the wine paired with them. She also suggested other places and food for us to enjoy on another trip. Awesome experience with our guide Esther.

We had a wonderful time exploring San Sebastian's old town on the Pintxos tour with Clara! Clara is a wonderful guide - she is very knowledgeable and we had a fun evening out with her! The tour helped us to experience the city's Pintxos scene (especially the seafood - mackerel, octopus and calamari) at its best. We definitely look forward to a future visit to San Sebastian!!

Couldn't recommend this tour more highly! Clara provided excellent food stops, interesting history and anecdotes, and looked after our group of 8 brilliantly! She is an absolute star so book her if you can! 6 stars 🤩

We had the best tour with Esther. She was so knowledgeable and lovely! The tour was great as well as it catered for all our dietary requirements (vegetarian; no shellfish and no pork etc). We learnt a lot about San Sebastián and had the yummiest pinxtos. Esther also sent us all the information about the tour afterwards which was so helpful! Highly recommend !!!

Best experience in San Sebastian. Clara was the mostly entertaining guide. From the moment she met it felt like spending the evening with an old friend. She took us to all the most amazing pintxos bars, ordered food and wine and the food was fantastic. Why visit a Michelin star restaurant, the squidetti that looked like a tiny spag bol was insane, as were all the other dishes. Clara booked tables,.knew bar owners, told us all about the area. Loved it! Thankyou Clara.

Clara was a wonderful guide and we had a great night. The restaurants we went to were lovely and I would have missed them without her guidance. She ordered amazing dishes and provided history of the region. It was especially nice to walk into busy restaurants and have a reserved table for our group. I would come back to town just to take this tour again.

We had an amazing experience with Esther. We didn’t know what to expect and thought we had enough Pintxos on our own but we were pleasantly surprised. The multitude of options can be overwhelming but Esther was able to narrow down the option and pair with delicious wine at each location. We went to 4 different locations and at the end she took us to a place to try the best cheesecake. In addition, she provided great conversation about the area and history as well as provided extra resources and ideas for the rest of the trip. She even sent an email the next day with the names for the restaurants and the pinxtos we ate. She truly went about and beyond! As tired as we were from a day of travel she kept us thoroughly engaged and entertained. We would highly recommend.

Cancelled on the day off the reservation, probably we were the only couple to book and they couldn't be bothered, Disappointing with an hour and halfs notice. Thankfully we rebooked and went on the Foodie, Pintxo, Wine & Market Tour (evening small group) and had a truly excellent time.
