Carlo was our guide and he did an amazing job. Not only his explanations we're useful and clear but also the places he took us were well selected. We ended up returning to some of them. Stark highlights when it comes to food are Gandarias and Bar Sport.

I'm so happy that I booked this tour. I have been here three times but still feel like there is so much to learn. Alin was the best guide, and gave so much valuable information about the city / Basque country and the history, pintxos, and what to do / see. She goes out of her way to make sure you feel comfortable and are getting the best experience. You go to three places and get 2 pintxos and one drink per place, which works out great as you're not too full but still feel satisfied. I highly recommend and if you could request Alin I would do it!

Kris was hands down, the best tour guide around the city. She kept everything brief, interesting, and to the point. She was funny, and certainly knew her way around San Sebastian with the food. The pinxto places she took us too were great, and we certainly went back there after the tour throughout our trip.
