Had a great time with Begonia learning about the history and the gastronomy of San Sebastian. Visited various pintxos bars where we tasted great quality foods including mussels, anchovies, duck, steak, cured hams and cheesecake. All tastings paired with wines and ciders. Begonia is very personable, she make the entire group feel at ease and included. This is a great activity to do on your first days in the region so you get expose to the culture and the food options this beautiful region has to offer allowing you to explore later on your own. Thank You Begonia for a great time!

Our guide, Natalie, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Originally from Hong Kong, she has made San Sebastián her home, and it shows. She seemed to have excellent relationships with the staff at each place we visited. I took this tour after already being in town for two days, and I can say the pintxos we had on the tour were so much better than anything I found on my own! Highly recommended!

Our guide Begonia was great and very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and history of the city. We loved all the food and drink we had on this tour and it was so helpful to have a local help navigate the pintxos bars. It gave us the confidence to go back to them the next day. It was a great way to sample a lot of different dishes and drinks.

All good. I always like trying new foods, and Carlos got me some off menu items, like sea urchin! A great variety of delicious pintxos enjoyed with a bunch of fellow foodies in the old town and led by a culinary school graduate, what more can you ask for?

The food and our guide were amazing. It was a great way to learn about San Sebastián and we went to places that the locals frequent. It gave us the chance to try pinchos that we normally would not have ordered and we learned a lot about Spanish wine. This is a must activity if you are traveling to San Sebastián.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Dear Kaila_F, We are glad to hear you found both the food and the guide to be amazing to the point you consider it a must when visiting San Sebastian, as it means we have done a great job. We are also happy you appreciated the fact we visited local places since it gave an authentic taste to the experience. We wish you all the best on your future travels and hope they will lead you to tour with us again soon. Sincerely,

I loved this pinxtos tour with our wonderful guide Begonia!! Not only did we get a lot of history of the city of San Sebastián but also enjoyed several pinxtos along with drinks. Begonia is very sweet and knowledgeable and very fun to talk to. She even followed up with answers to questions she wasn’t sure about at the time. Love that :) Definitely recommend it!

We did this our first night in San Sebastián and it was wonderful! Our guide, Anya, was so knowledgeable and had the best energy! She took us to so many amazing places that we never would have found on our own and gave us such informative talks at each stop! We loved Anya and the tour so much!! If one comes to San Sebastián, one has to do the pintxos and since one has to do the pintxos, you should do so with a knowledgeable and fun tour like ours with Anya through Devour Tours. ¡Eskerrik asko!

We had a fantastic evening with Hector. I learnt more about Basque language and history in the first 10 minutes of the evening than the previous 3 days in San Sebastián. Then on to the fun part of eating and drinking. There was lots of interesting background information about the food we ate. Hector professionally catered to random dietary requirements of the group whilst still making everyone feel very much included. A fantastic evening, would highly recommend.

Inclusions & Exclusions WHAT'S INCLUDED 3 hour walking tour of the historical center Dinner across 6 pintxo bars Try the best local bites, including acorn-fed Iberian ham, local beef, award-winning cheesecake, and more! Enjoy five types of local wines and ciders All food and drink is included Expert, English-speaking guide to give you a greater understanding of San Sebastian’s history, culture and cuisine Small group maximum of 8-10 people Gratuities Tour Language Recommendations for the rest of your time in San Sebastian and beyond Dinner Alcoholic Beverages We had a good Pintxo bar experience but understood that there was dinner included after the tour. See list above. However this did not materialise which was a pity. We felt without a dinner included it was not good value for money.
