Amazing food, wine, and tour of the city
Alexis_W, Nov 2022
Veronica was amazing! She gave us so much information and history about San Sebastián while also introducing us to amazing food. We loved every dish and drink we tried. She then sent us more info for things and places to try for the remainder of our trip. This was such a fun evening and I highly recommend it!

A fun way to learn about Pintxos
Lynette_S, Sep 2022
This tour was great for many reasons - the food was delicious, the wines really went well with the plates, the group was fun and our guide was just lovely and so informative as to the dishes and history of the region. I tried foods I would not normally order and so glad I did. I will never say I don’t like anchovy again!
Veronica was an excellent...

Veronica was an excellent guide. She shared highlights of the history of San Sebastián as she took us to five different pinxtos bars and ordered for us the “best” each bar had to offer.

Excellent experience with local guide
Cheryl_L, Jul 2022
Veronica was our guide. Born and raised in San Sebastián and a true foodie, she brought the love of her town and the passion for great food and drink throughout the tour. She had high energy and in depth knowledge of the town history and the best pintxos in all of San Sebastián. Highly recommend you go on the tour and if you are lucky you will Veronica as your guide.
What a great tour, from a local, showing us his delicious town!
Joshua_P, Jul 2022
There are tours that you take that you enjoy enough to say you're glad you spent money on it, and then there are tours you take where you say it was one of the key highlights of the trip. This was one of the highlights! Guillermo lead an excellent pintxo tour! We went to several pintxo bars, at each one he gave us a list of food options and let us know which wine was paired with this stop's food. A great way to do it so that everyone isn't forced to eat the same food, and anyone with food issues (gluten for example) can choose something compatible. He was a great tour guide, gave us lots of helpful insights into local culture, the pintxo scene, restaurant recommendations, etc... Book this tour! I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
Lovely small group tour....
Scott_T, Jul 2022
Lovely small group tour. Very fun and knowledgeable guide. Bars were not pre booked - chosen at the time based on food availability, groups preference (dietary) and guides knowledge
A decent selection of bars, but could have been better!
Joe_S, Jul 2022
We have been to pinxto bars before. We don’t think the selection on this tour was outstanding. Our tour guide was not as informative as other guides we have encountered in our prior tours. There was very little history about the town, the region, the inner workings of pinxto bars and the history and process of the experience within a context. Basque has a rich history and food is a big part of that, learning about it and selecting a better quality bars would have enhanced the experience.
Take this tour!!
Andi_C, Jul 2022
GUILLERMO was a great tour guide! He took us to some popular places and some spots that were under the radar which was a nice mix. He started us with some simple pintxos to the more complex ones. Oh and the wines were delicious. Highly recommend. Also, a nice way to meet other people traveling around Spain!
Don’t miss this experience!
Sue_P, Jul 2022
This was fantastic. Veronica was an amazing local guide and as well as lots of tasty food and wine we learnt so many interesting facts about San Sebastián and the Basque region and culture. It gave us confidence to return the next night and understand how to best experience Pintxo. Small group greatly appreciated.
Food, wine and great chats
Conor_B, Jun 2022
Veronica was our tour guide. The passion and love for the Basque food and culture really made the tour that much more enjoyable, bringing us to 6 of some of her favourite spots and showing us the best pinxos and wine in each I can't recommend this tour enough. She also was able to recommend loads more pitxos bars and restaurants to try out on the rest of our stay
Great time

Dear Mark, Thanks to you for choosing Mimo! Hope to see you again
Really captures the spirit of San Sebastián
Joy_H, May 2022
This was a delightful e evening. Our guide Guermo was excellent. The food and company were great. Pass yourself on the wine. I think we went to 6 tapas bars with wine at each so I had a bit of a hangover.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Joy, we are glad to hear you have so much fun! Hope you are recovered from your hangover ;)
