I'll meet you at the corner of the modern KURSAAL CONVENTION CENTER and the BRIDGE. You can't miss it. Look for this Ice Cream Shoppe: GELATARÍA BOULEVARD I'll be outside by the seawall along the river. I'm the guy with the curly hair and the moustache.

Many guests like for me to end the tour at a bar so they can continue on their own. I'm happy to walk you to a taxi queue, your hotel or rental--when convenient. I will NEVER leave guests lost or alone and always make sure they are safe at the end of the night.

Super Pinxtos and culture tour of San Sebastián.
, Oct 2021
Gregory had an extraordinary depth of knowledge not just about food and great places to eat, but also about the history and culture of the Basque people. He was very engaging.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Really happy to hear you guys had fun!
Great private first night in San Sebastián!
, Sep 2021
Gregory was very eager to meet us and show us all he could in our evening tour. He was full of information and taught us about history, food, current issues in the region, and answered our many questions. Our experience in San Sebastián is definitely richer after spending our first evening here, with Gregory. It’s a pricey tour but it’s private and feels like you have a local friend that takes you to their favorite spots and knows the best things to order. Thank you, Gregory!

And there's so much of it here! :0 Check out all the recommendations I sent you too--more great bars, eats and drinks to be had! THANKS AGAIN! HAPPY TRAVELS!!! Agur, Gregory
This was my first small group tour...

This was my first small group tour and it was absolutely excellent. Of course the tour content was great, the food was amazing as was the history, however, what really made the tour for me, was Gregory. Both my boyfriend and I agree that it was like doing a tour with an old mate we hadnt seen for years. He was very funny and outgoing whilst also being very knowledgeable. We had so much fun we arranged to meet up again the next day to tour the markets and do a causal cooking class with him over a few drinks. If you are debating whether to do a tour or just walk around and eat the Pintxo on your own, then consider this. All the food is beautiful, but the really good food is written in spanish on the chalk boards, not prepared waiting on the bar. We tried some incredible dishes and drinks that we wouldnt have known about if it hadnt of been for the local knowledge. Just some food for thought All in all I give it 6 stars...I couldnt recommend this tour enough!
