Tipping Info

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.

Itinerary

Our San Sebastian food tour will start with a wander through the city centre, absorbing the atmosphere and learning the need-to-know about the Basque culture of socialising and gastronomy. It’s imperative that you know the background of what you’re about to experience; for instance, do you know what a sagardotegi or sociedad gastronomica is?
Once you’re a master of pinxtos history, it’s only appropriate that we dive right in and immerse you in the culture of bars, socialising, and pintxos! We’ll take you to the bars where locals not only enjoy their pintxos, but also relax and meet with friends. We’ll taste some of the most important flavours of Basque cuisine (including some dishes prepared by pintxo competition winners!), as well as local wines. Along the way we’ll visit a market to learn all about local products used in Basque cuisine, and discover how and why gastronomy is the main characteristic of Basque culture.
You’ll finish this San Sebastian food tour full of knowledge and full of delicious pintxos. And always remember: pintxos is not only eating, but also a way of socialising and a way of life!
