San Sebastian pintxos & wine tour (lunch)
** Our San Sebastian PINTXOS & WINE tour, ranked in the Top 10 Food Tours in the world by Trip Advisor in 2016**
Note, this San Sebastian PINTXOS & WINE tour, is at lunchtime– if you would prefer dinner, click here for EVENING TOUR
Pintxos (Basque tapas) line every bar in San Sebastian’s famed Old Town, but knowing where to find the best ones is an art. While it’s hard to have a bad meal in town, knowing exactly where to go for the best, freshest, and most exciting Pintxos takes local, insider knowledge. Do a journey in San Sebastian like a local, led by our friendly and knowledgeable Basque guides.
In a more relaxed mood, out of the evenings booze, we dive straight into the culinary heart of the city for a lunch unlike any you’ve ever experienced. From fresh prawns to line-caught baby squid to perfectly charred steak, the Pintxo hunt changes daily but always features a range of traditional spots and chic, avant-garde bars.
Come thirsty, too, as we’ll be pairing each Pintxo with the perfect pour, from cider to local whites and reds.
Our Pintxo tasting tour comes highly recommended by the world’s authorities on travel: Conde Nast Traveller, Easy Jet, Vogue, Financial Times and many others. Stylist Magazine says “There’s no better overview of the city’s food scene”.
