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, it will be a customised tour and will depend on what you have already seen or your interests: The concha bay, the Miramar palace, the comb of the wind sculpture, the cathedral, the romantic area, the city centre or Urgull hill would be some of the possibilities.
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.
- walk up Urgull's hill to see the views and comment about San Sebastian's history.
- a flat walk which incluides: city center, cathedral, Romantic area, Concha bay, . . .
- Take a taxi to Igeldo's hill and its 1912 funicular and the comb of the wind sculpture from Chillida (Basque greatest sculptor)
After we 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.

We were a group of 4 arriving on a ship with only one day in Bilboa...When we discovered the ship was docking quite a distance from Bilboa we decided to book a tour and explore the countryside of Spain...ie Sans Sebastian and some wonderful surf spots...ie Mundaka. Scenery was wonderful...mountains and ocean all in one...Had a light lunch sharing Pinxtos, beer and cider at some local bars which were delicious! Gontxu was really great. His english was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our day!
