What Our Customers Say

Our Food Tours in San Sebastián and Basque Country

Welcome to Basque Bites! We proudly provide San Sebastián’s only chef-led food tours.

Our company was established by Gregory Schaefer, a super-fun American chef from California.

Having lived in this beautiful Basque city for over a decade, Gregory wanted to help visitors experience the region’s incredible culinary culture.

So here we are!

Let us show you around the best places for delectable Basque fare, from overflowing markets where the locals shop to the best pintxo bars and restaurants in San Sebastián.

Thirsty? We like a drink and so does the Basque Country. From world class wines, ciders and beers to vermouth and local specialities. Plan for some seriously fun tasting!

The Man Behind our San Sebastian Food Tours

Gregory leads our daily walking food tours in San Sebastián, Spain, sharing insightful experiences into the unique history, politics, and culture of the Basque Country — and all with a focus on FOOD and DRINK!

Not only is Gregory at the helm of Basque Bites creating tours and experiences, he also works as a private culinary consultant, a food festival producer and as a culinary professor for the city of San Sebastián’s Department of Culture.

Gregory is also very active in the local wine community, frequenting tastings with all the local distributors and purveyors. Each year he takes advantage of the harvest to make his own batch of natural and organic wines which, if you’re lucky, he might just pour at an event or tasting.

We’re just barely scratching the surface on why food tours in San Sebastián with Basque Bites are so unique!
