A fantastic tour of San Sebastián old town with traditional drinks and Pintxos. Jon was full of historical and interesting facts about the area and chose some fantastic Pintxos and drinks to share with us. The cheesecake and raisin liquor was my absolute favourite! Delicious!! We did this on our final evening and we thought it would actually be more useful to do it at the beginning so you can revisit some of the restaurants to sample the amazing food again!

Osane was a lovely host for small group (7 in total) pintxas evening tour through Old Town. The tour was not only delicious, it was educational and above all fun. Highly recommend! Leslie from Seattle

The guide was helpful and informative. We were better prepared to enjoy pintxo throughout the rest of our stay after starting with the tour and understanding the culture.

So grateful we didn't decide to drive ourselves, the wine region was beautiful. The village of Laguardia was an unexpected treat. Thank you for our experience.

We were so lucky to have Alex as a guide. Very knowledgeable, punctual and friendly!
