Pinxtos - Spanish snacks popular in Basque country, more or less Basque tapas. Now we've got the definition out the way, time to get our eat on! Journey through San Sebastian with a local guide on this tapas tour and learn all about the culture of Basque country through its delicious flavors.
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? Not to worry, your local guide will tell you all you need to know, and more!
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. The pintxos we will present to you are the best reflection of modern Basque gastronomy: they preserve the heritage of tastes and flavours of Basque cuisine while the presentation will be like a modern piece of art (tasty, tasty art...).
You’ll finish this San Sebastian city tour full of knowledge and full of delicious pintxos. And always remember: pintxos are not only something that you eat, but the culture of eating them is also a way of socialising and a way of life for the locals - so dig in!
