What you'll do

• This is a foodie immersion in real, ordinary San Sebastian to get a real sense of community, understand how locals live and eat as you learn about local history and culture.
• For every person who joins, we donate a meal to the local soup kitchen that feeds people that live on the streets, you Eat One you Feed One!
• 3hr walking, where there's mostly eating and less than 10 mins-walk between each stop.

I founded Eat One Feed One a small food tour company in San Sebastian aiming to create a positive social impact on through local NGO's. I moved to San Sebastian 10 yrs ago because of my LOVE of food and studied culinary arts. Eat One Feed One means for every person who joins a tour we DONATE a meal through the local soup kitchen feeding homeless people. I believe our choices reflect who we are, that travel is the best antidote for social prejudice and FOOD is, the best way to connect with others and really get to know this city’s culture.
I work with 2 amazing women and guides, Osane and Emilie. True foodies with a deep love for Basque Culture, San Sebastian and motivated to create a positive impact wherever they go. No visit to the Basque Country is complete without a pintxos tour! Join us on a tour and let us share our city with you!

Had a great time trying lots of various pinxtos and learning a bit about Basque country. Emilie personalized our stops and left me with lots of recommendations for the rest of my stay.

We had an absolutely amazing time with Cristina. We learned so much about the city, Basque Country and the culture - we would have regretted not doing this tour as there were so many things we would have missed. Small details, like the plaque commemorating the lady who taught Basque language during Franco’s reign and the oldest food society in San Sebastián, were highlighted to bring life to the city. Cristina took us to some fantastic pintxos bars with amazing food; to be honest we would not have known what to order without her, and would not have elbowed our way to the bar without her guidance! I can say with all honesty that we would not have had a true San Sebastián experience without this tour. Thank you Cristina!

Emilie is super friendly, warm, and knowledgeable about the food and wine scene of San Sebastian! She made us feel comfortable and answered all our questions. The food tour was fun, albeit a bit short in my opinion. Would love to have tried even more pinxtos! We will definitely be back to San Sebastian in the future :)

we had a great time eating pintxos and sampling local drinks with Emilie. we went to places it would have been hard to find by ourselves and having someone do all the ordering for you is a great luxury! Emilie asked us how adventurous we wanted to be and tailored the choices well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour and would do it again. We were a congenial group of six. The variety of pintxos and wines were outstanding. In addition to a wonderful evening for ourselves part of the funds help others in need. If in doubt just do it. You’ll not regret it.

We loved our San Sebastián pintxos tour with Emilie! She planned a perfect progression from light bites, to heavier items, and ending with dessert--pairing each with a beverage. Her timing is impeccable for not wasting time waiting in lines and getting into places quickly to make the most of your time. She also has great relationships with many of the bars. We especially appreciated how open Emilie was in answering our questions about Basque country. It is perfect to do the tour your first night in town because Emilie will give you a good sense of the different areas of town, as well as other bars you can visit and what to eat. We highly recommend Emilie or her colleagues.
