San Sebastián, Spain

Experience hosted by Clara

3 hours
Includes food
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Take part in an unique pintxos tasting, paired with great wines, stopping at some of the best pintxo bars. Enjoy the Basque flavors that have conquered thousands and match them with the most renown wines like Rioja, Ribera de Duero or the local white Txakolí. This pintxo tour stops at 4 top bars, and will include 7 pintxos, 5 drinks and will finish with a traditional Basque dessert.

Pintxo tour is suitable for people with food preferences (no meat, gluten-free, pregnants…). Pintxo bars are in walking distance, most in the charming Old Town of San Sebastian.

From our meeting point we will visit the Old Town of San Sebastian where you will learn about Basque traditions and customs. You will visit bars off the normal tourist trail, eating and drinking like locals do. You will get to try and enjoy 7 pintxos (tapas) that I choose for you, 1 sweet pintxo and 5 drinks (wine, beer, cider…). The tour will last 3h approximately.

If I could rate this experience ten stars, I would. On a very cold and heavy rainy night, we set out with Clara to learn and taste pintxos in the stunning area of old town San Sebastián. Clara had reserved the best tables for us and we tasted delicious pintxos. WOW! Beyond expectations. Enjoyed every minute and would do it again in a second. Highly recommend!!

We had a fantastic evening together. Clara's friend Esther was actually the one taking us around the town, and she was an excellent guide - warm, efficient, knowledgeable, extremely proud of her Basque heritage, and overall just a lovely person. We had a great little group, and left the evening as friends. Oh - and the food was incredible! Highly recommend this experience.

Clara was such a wonderful and kind host! She was she thoughtful with her pintxo choices and so accommodating for my mother, who has limited mobility. It was so nice for my family to experience this unique dining experience with a warm, gracious insider like Clara. Thank you so much for welcoming us to Donostia in our first night in with a great experience! Highly recommend this experience with Clara!
