Every person who has travel a bit knows what type of experiences a traveler interested in discovering other cultures will enjoy the most. Being a food lover myself and after quite time observing you guys “the tourists” walking around town, trying to find the right place to eat, getting all the pintxos at once (OMG!) missing the good stuff! I knew I had to do something about it :) I’m happy to share this foodie adventure with you and show u a bit of our culture that we so proudly keep alive. I’ll take u to live a refreshing, immersive experience to discover new tastes and also approach to the people of the place you're visiting so for a couple of hours you’ll feel like an authentic basque! (Aupa!) I’ll guide you to an unique gastronomic stroll on smells, tastes, textures and anecdotes to LIVE the Real Basque Culture, eat and drink the best pintxos and wines that only an insider can show you ;) Get ready, this is gonna be fun! Did you know?? Donosti is the city with more Michelin Stars per square meter in Europe. Being one of the world best known gastronomical cities it's not surprising to find a huge number of pintxos bars spread around town, actually only in the Old Town, there are so many taverns that you probably wouldn't know where to start! You could easily pass by, leaving the real gastronomic treasures of the city out. But you don’t want to miss all that, do you?
Hello! I'm Val, designer by profession, traveler by soul and wine&foodie lover by passion and whim ;) As a real food enjoyer I like to be in the vanguard and seek out the best food & beverage scene everywhere i go. I'm happy to share this passion with you and show you the authentic Donosti, giving you the insider's point of view, you'll have the chance to LIVE the Basque Culture like one of us. You won't pass here just like any-other tourist! For many years i worked in Hospitality, including running my own bar. After, managed a small Hotel Boutique and stared to get involved with tourism. This experience allowed me to operate as Quality Manager for a couple of resto-bars. For the past 5 years I've been leading Gastro-Cultural Tours in town. Later i begun to collaborate with Interior Designe projects - which i love too!
The "Star Pintxo" of each eatery.
Typical wines, cider, beer, vermouth. Water always available.
This is a gastro-anecdotal tour, so that for a couple of hours you can venture in an immersive encounter to stroll around Old Town. We'll stop by in five of the most emblematic spots in town merging our walk with degustation of the" matchless" pintxos and typical beverages in the chosen eateries, some historical hidden taverns we've been enjoying for generations and the newest gourmet bars that you could easily pass by among the crowd.
We have a very beautiful green Country because we have a lot of rain, but this won't stop the tour. In case of rain make sure you wear a raincoat or bring umbrella.
When booking please: Let me know about any dietary restrictions. We will eat on our feet as usual here ;) Vegetarians & Non drinkers welcome!
