Join Us for a Private Pintxo Dinner Tour in San Sebastián

On this private dinner experience, you are guaranteed to have the founder of Basque Bites, Gregory, as your personal guide. He ensures that this is a premium tour that includes visits to the very best bars and some extra special tastings and wines.

Additionally, Basque Bites will act as a concierge of sorts. We can help guide you through the Basque Country and make recommendations and reservations as needed.

This unique private walking food tour dives into San Sebastián’s culinary corazón. Catch the sunset while strolling through the city’s famed Old Town, and visit the world-famous bars for drinks and pintxos—AKA Basque tapas.

Everything’s included in this private dinner experience as we visit five of our favorite tabernas for small plates and the perfect pour. It’s a full meal and a dynamic night out of eating and drinking with the locals.

Along the route, you’ll see the city’s famous sites, and Gregory will share the Basque Country’s fascinating history and culture. But don’t be mistaken, the focus is definitely on food and drink! After all, there’s no better way to learn why San Sebastián is one of the world’s most acclaimed culinary capitals. And anyway, learning is fun with a glass of wine in your hand!

By the end of this experience, you will know how to navigate the city and have the confidence to approach the bars on your own—don’t worry, we’ll show you how it’s done.

Our walking routes and menus change daily, but we always offer a mix of traditional and modern fare. Expect to dine on anchovies, squid, bacalao, veal cheeks, and foie gras! Maybe we’ll nibble on a pig ear or two?

Got any special requests? Just get in touch and let us know.

Thirsty? We know exactly how to pair your plate with the perfect pour, from local sidra to white wine (txakoli), reds from La Rioja, and more. And there’s always beer and vermouth on tap.

Anyone can go to a Michelin-starred restaurant, but only real food lovers take a private dinner tour with Basque Bites.
