Overview
Discover the esteemed culinary scene of San Sebastián on an evening tour to three award-winning ‘pintxos’ (Basque tapas) bars. Accompanied by an expert gastronomical guide, discover the history behind the miniature morsels known as pintxos and pleasure your palate with samples of some of the city’s best. Tantalize your taste buds with local delicacies like spider crab while sipping fine Basque wines and crisp locally brewed beers.
What to Expect
Greet your guide in central San Sebastían then stroll through the gorgeous Gross neighborhood on the way to your first food destination. Listen as your guide explains the critically acclaimed culinary scene in San Sebastián and hear how dishes reflect layers of rich history and heritage.

Stroll past majestic Michelin-starred restaurant and traditional taverns before arriving at your first delicious destination. Sample local specialties while sipping complimenting beverages and absorb the convivial atmosphere within each exuberant eatery. Venture to three distinctly different bars to see the stylistic varieties of pintxos; marvel at the creative flair in each and learn about the subtle nuances of the food.

Bid your guide and group farewell in the third and final tapas bar, an conclusion point that leaves you perfectly placed to continue exploring the city independently.
