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 was superb as our guide around a lunchtime tour of the San Sebastian market and pintxos bars. Not only was she warm and friendly and very knowledgeable but as the result of her help we were able to order pintxos with confidence through the rest of our holiday. She was very patient with all our questions too! I would highly recommend this tour.

Taste of San Sebastian
Met our guide in the Market area. Unfortunately the markets were closed due to the Easter Holiday, however, she was more than made up for it with her Knowledge and personality. We had a personal tour since we were the only three on the tour. We stopped in some of the local eatery’s and were introduce us to the delicious pintxos and libations. It was great to learn about the Basque traditions. By the time the tour was over, we felt like family. Tour was well worth it.
