Our guide Chris was helpful and informative. Well prepared to ensure a wonderful time. But beyond the tour she went out of her way to help us get a taxi back. Highly recommend to anyone

We started off our visit to San Sebastián with a fabulous food and culture tour. Christina was great and the night could not have been better. Thank you

The tour was good and the guide Eneku as patient with the group (11). Choices of places to go to were good however, should have included a traditional pinxto bar rather than just going to modern ones.

This was a great experience. Our guide Marta was fantastic and she introduced us to some wonderful Pintxos.

We undertook this tour the evening we arrived in San Sebastian, and it equipped us beautifully for the rest of our stay in this wonderful town. Marta's expert cultural and gastronomic knowledge made this an exceptional experience, and her ability to interact with bar staff in the filled-to-capacity bars showed that she is also held in high regard by them. I would highly recommend this tour, and learn all about the uniqueness of this Basque corner of Spain.

Our guide was Marta and she was engaging and interesting - the information was great. We had been in the city a few days already, and she cemented our impressions of it. The spots she chose to visit were spot on - delicious and different - ensuring that we got a chance to enjoy a range of pintxos - and teaching us what to order when we were on our own to enhance the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour - very enjoyable.
