Meet Naiara, Your Native Sherpa
Naiara went with journalism as her chosen career, but also used her love of all things culinary when she landed a job with a food PR agency in London. Naiara quickly learned the major role that Spain plays in the food and wine business, which is why she decided to return to her native San Sebastian to lead guests on wonderful food and wine tours in the city.
Elena gave us a personalised tour of Old Town in San Sebastian. We went to the best pintxo places and it was so delicious we were full after the end of the tour!
It was great getting to know the history of San Sebastian as part of the tour and being only the two of us, it was so lovely to have such a private and personalised tour. Elena was lovely and we had a great time chatting throughout the tour.
If you have dietary requirements, they will do their best to accommodate and being gluten intolerant it was great knowing the Elena had looked into where and what to eat.
We highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to know where to eat the best pintxo’s you won’t be disappointed!

My family and I were visiting southwest France and decided to take a side trip to SAN Sebastian for only one night! As we had limited time we wanted to make the most of our visit so we booked a pintxos tour as this is what the old town is famous for! We are SO glad we did! Elena was our guide and she was wonderful. As a native, she also told us the history of this beautiful area as well as took us to six places. It was so delicious and professional! Even though the places were very busy we immediately got food and drinks. Fantastic variety as well:). Don’t miss this tour!

Fantastic Pintxos Tour
My wife and I booked this tour for our honeymoon and we were not disappointed! Our guide was absolutely fantastic. She was fun, knowledgeable, made us feel completely at ease and overall it was such a pleasure getting to know her over the evening. She knew the best spots to go, the specialties, popular drinks, etc. We went on a Sunday as it was only day we had free and they warned us in advance that some places might be closed and there may be fewer options, but we decided to roll the dice anyway. There were some curve balls where places were closed even though they told our guide they would be open, but she was flexible and always had a (delicious) Plan B in mind. Highly recommend this tour!

Vi tilbrakte vår første kveld i San Sebastian med den veldig hyggelige guiden, som tok oss med til seks forskjellige pintxo-barer i gamlebyen. Vi kom alltid først i køen ved hjelp av , og spiste helt nydelige pintxos. Underveis fortalte hun oss også om de ulike bygningene og gatene i gamlebyen, og tok oss innom en av kirkene, hvor hun viste oss kulehull fra borgerkrigen, som vi ikke ville ha fått med oss ellers. Dagen etter var vi på Akelarre, men pintxo-turen gjorde større inntrykk.
