We did this tour with Veronica, she was amazing. It was worth every penny, and I recommend booking it at the beginning of your time in San Sebastian so you will know where you should eat the rest of the time you are there. She was very knowledgable and taught us about the food, culture, and customs. Everything we ate was just perfection, and the drinks paired very well. We brought our two little ones, and if your children will sit through several restaurants without an issue, it should be okay. I don't recommend bringing a stroller on this tour, we ended up using the baby carrier instead. Many of the restaurants were quite small and didn't have room for a stroller.

The Pintxo tour was just brilliant! Our tour guide Lourdes loves the city, loves food and loves to feed people. So what could go wrong? We were treated with so many great foods and wine, along with some historical facts about this beautiful city. Highly recommended for everyone. And yes, try to ensure Lourdes as your tour guide 3

This is an excellent tour with very efficiently arranged route. We went to four different restaurants and sampled 2-3 pintxos each with good local wines. Our guide grew up locally and was very knowledgeable about the local restaurant scene. In two and half hours we had both a satisfying lunch and a lot of knowledge about pintxos.
