My expectations were open as they should be when you are dealing with crops and time of season for vegetables. My tour guide Christina was very passionate about the information shared about the Basque area. Her culinary experience and knowledge of Basque was a great introduction to what we both experienced at the farm. The proprietor, Amara, was personable and knowledgeable of the vegetables. The farm also helps locals with special needs. Worth the trip. I am an avid gardener. So perfect for me!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review Camille I really appreciate I hope you get to come back and visit the farm again in a different season to see the changes. Have a great time and let us know when you're back! Big hug!
This was a most informative, delicious and fun walking tour. Cristina was very personable and knowledgeable; she was definitately a local, passionate "foodie" - the perfect person to lead such a tour. She shared all kinds of information with us, not just pintxos related, but about Basque language, customs, traditions, history, etc. Highly recommend this tour early into a visit to San Sebastian/Basque region.

We had a tremendous time with Cristina. She provided inspired culinary treats and delicious curiosities with the perfect dose of Basque culture and history. She was a joy to tour with, and we passed on many of her recommendations and finds to other friends. Would definitely recommend Cristina for a true foodie insiders experience!

Cristina gave us a GREAT tour of San Sebastian & the pintxo bars! Not only did we get to taste the best pintxos from 5 different bars, Cristina also imparted her great knowledge of Donostia culture and history. She has an engaging personality and showed us how to order the best food from the kitchen, rather than the benchtops! Cristina catered beautifully for a vegetarian in our group and we thought it great that some of our funding went towards the city underpriviledged. HIGHLY recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Richard, I really enjoyed meeting you all!
The food is great (thanks to Joseba), Christina a lovely and most knowledgeable host. What an unique experience! Worth every Euro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Franz, we really enjoyed having you too!
