Join Us for a Private Pintxo Lunch Tour in San Sebastián

On this private market tour and pintxo lunch experience, you are guaranteed to have Gregory, the founder of Basque Bites, as your personal guide. He’ll ensure that this is a premium tour, taking you to the very best bars and ordering up some extra special tastings and wines.

Additionally, Basque Bites will act as a concierge of sorts, helping to guide you through the Basque Country and making recommendations and reservations as needed.

On this private food tour in San Sebastián, we reveal our city’s secrets! This is a walking, eating, and drinking experience you’ll never forget!

We start at San Sebastián’s La Bretxa Market, one of the city’s main hubs and where we go shopping every day.

This is the perfect place to rub shoulders with the neighbors and see what our favorite butchers, greengrocers, and fishmongers have on offer. There’s no better way to work up an appetite before lunch.

After leaving the market, we walk through the Old Town and learn about the region’s history and culture. Along the way, we stop at three of our favorite pintxo (AKA Basque tapas) tabernas for a mouthwatering lunch!

This private experience offers a great city walk and a wine-soaked lunch—exactly how the locals do it!

From the modern to the traditional, from squid to veal, and from local sidra to local wines, this tour focuses on Basque food and drink.

You may find pintxo culture confusing at first, but with Basque Bites, you’ve got nothing to worry about. We teach you how it all works so you can follow up and order on your own.

This private San Sebastián pintxo lunch tour is the best way to truly discover one of the world’s great culinary capitals.
