Where you'll be

The Old Part of San Sebastián is considered the mecca of pintxos. It is a spectacle to see the great variety of pintxos in the bars of the bars, that is why we prepare a selection of the most select pintxos chosen especially for you.

First we stroll our lovely market where we will visit an olive shop to tell you the history behind a "Gilda". You will meet a local vendor who reached top50 biggest olive oil shop in the world.

You will travel back in time, from the origin of the Gilda to the most avant-garde style.

We will walk the old quarter, like a Basque going bar hopping, and we will see some emblematic buildings and you will learn about our "private cooking clubs".

I can't wait to enjoy this day with you!!!

Jon is a very engaging host and clearly has a strong passion for showing his culture to his guests. His choices of Pintxo bars and dishes was excellent and not something you’d be likely to come across on your own. His great tips for navigating San Sebastians food scene also make this a solid experience to do at the beginning of your visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed my Pintxo food your with Jon while visiting San Sebastian. Although relatively new to the Airbnb website, Jon has been giving food tours in San Sebastian for many years. His tour is very reasonably priced, he offered a wealth of suggestions and information, hooked me up with some kick ass olive oil, as well as some great Pintxos. Enjoyed my evening and would recommend!

Exceptional all around. Jon is a true ambassador of Basque culture and cuisine. I don’t think you’ll find a better person to introduce you to pinxtos while walking about the oldest sections of the city. His global experience as a fellow traveler helps define your tour as the most memorable of events. Book him now before he becomes unavailable by demand.

I was fortunate to have a private tour with Jon even though I usually enjoy group dynamics with Airbnb tours. Jon’s a true world traveler himself and brings that passion and his stories to the table as well as his love for Basque culture and it’s amazing Pintxos cuisine. After one evening I know why San Sebastián is renowned for its Chefs and flavors! Highly recommend!

Such a wonderful tour with Jon! Culture, food, history...he is your live Google and is fully committed to providing you an unforgettable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed walking through the markets and Old Town, and getting a great feel on how to take on pintxos, all emphasized with Jon's contagious Basque energy. We repeated several of the locations Jon showed us the following night. Earra!
