Oihana was a wonderful guide through the complexities of pintxos and local drinks. We tasted wonderful things we wouldn't have known we could even order! She showed us an enjoyable evening walking around town. Highly recommend - but ask for Oihana!

Pintxos and Wine tour was highlight of my visit to San Sebastian last July. The tour guide Maria was fun and resourceful. I had a great time and enjoyed the tour. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who visits there for the first time.

I really enjoyed this introduction to dining in Donostia/San Sebastian. We met at the harbour, and walked through part of the Old Town, where Athenea, our tour guide, pointed out some private eating establishments and explained their cultural and historical significance. Then we sampled pintxos at award-winning bars in both the Old Town and across the river in the middle-class neighbourhood of Gros.
Athenea was very friendly, accessible and knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. We had a mixed group of middle-aged Brits/Aussies with a young American honeymoon couple. She accommodated our diverse needs very well, and we were a cohesive group within minutes.
As a middle-aged solo woman traveller, I was unsure how to approach the San Sebastian experience, but this tour gave me the confidence to go out and enjoy the pintxos bars like a local. I highly recommend this tour with Urban Adventures via Viator.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

It was a great tour. It was a great guide. She could tell a lot of San Sebastian and the different restaurants and bars. The amount of pintxos and wine was perfect. I will recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed this tour and Atheana was a very knowledgeable guide.
The bars we visited were fabulous and it was great to cross the bridge and explore a part of San Sebastián we would not have seen.
