Enjoy the best San Sebastian views and a selection of the tastiest pintxos


First we will do a cultural visit to San Sebastian in a trip to our past history visiting the most ancient places of the city, most of them remaining at Urgull's hill from where we will enjoy the stunning San Sebastian's views.

After we will head to old town to eat pintxos. Pintxo is like a religion for San Sebastian people. We like to join in bars to eat these delicious snacks (pintxos) while drinking a cup of tasty wine.

San Sebastian's old town has the biggest amount of bars per square meter in Spain and has become the world's capital for pintxos, which makes the pintxo-tour a must in your visit to the city.

When the visitor starts on the art of the pintxo tasting normally feels lost because the offer is amazing, here is where the pintxo-tour would help you to understand where are the best and most authentic pintxos.

Itinerary

Once we are at old town we will walk up hill to see the views and comment about San Sebastian's history. It is an easy walk but in case you don't feel like doing it, we could adjust it easily, e. g. we could do a flat walk and also if the weather is rainy we could modify it.

Walk will finish in old town where we will have a few pintxos and drinks (around 6) . Every pintxo will be eaten in a different bar, so we are going to visit different streets, specially the main ones.

A Recent Review of this tour

Gontxu gave us a great tour! He was very accommodating and modified the tour based on our wishes. He was informative and went above and beyond even making us a dinner reservation for the following evening. He was a pleasure to be with and has a great love of the Basque Country.
