Discover the flavors of the best Pintxos in San Sebastian and how they differ from tapas on this private tour.
San Sebastián (known as Donostia in Basque) is a city renowned worldwide for its gastronomic tradition. Without doubt the unrivalled “star” featured in every bar is the Pintxo. The picturesque old town (Parte Vieja) is completely packed with Pintxos bars — so many that knowing where to go and what to order can be completely overwhelming.
On this tour you will visit the finest Pintxos bars that visitors are unlikely to discover on their own, and enjoy the best Pintxos in each bar, as well as the most suitable drink to accompany it, chosen from Cider, Txakoli (Basque white wine) or red wine.
You will first go to the Old Town of San Sebastian where you will learn about Basque traditions and customs. You will visit bars off the normal tourist trail, eating and drinking like locals do.
Enjoy knowing the anecdotes of the city and how they relate when going out to eat at the Pintxos bars; it is a way to socialising as well as a philosophy of life. You will be able to taste 5 Pintxos and 5 drinks in the bars to which you will go accompanied and advised by your guide.
On the tour will will also learn how to get around the streets of the city like a Donostiarra (inhabitant of San Sebastian).
