In between the Kursaal Palace and the Mount Ulia on the other side it extends Gros a cosmopolitan, dynamic neighborhood that looks out over the Cantabric sea through Zurriola Beach and which has become one of the liveliest districts in the city, thanks to its many pintxos bars, terraces and charming shops. Being a food lover myself and after years observing thousands of tourists walking around town, eating all the pintxos at once (missing the good stuff!) I had it clear i wanted to start this foodie adventure, share my particular view and offer you the chance to live an immersive and refreshing experience to discover new tastes but also to approach to the place you're visiting, the people and our culture that we so proudly keep alive. At least for a couple of hours you’ll feel like an authentic basque! I’ll take 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 ;) Is gonna be so much fun! Did you know?? Donosti is the city with more Michelin Stars per square meter in Europe so it's not surprising to find a large number of pintxos bars spread around the city. You could easily pass by, leaving the real gastronomic treasures of the city out and 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 fan I like to be in the vanguard and seek out the best food & beverage scene everywhere i go. I'll be happy to share this passion with you and show you the very best of Donosti. Giving you the insider's point of view, you'll have the chance to LIVE the Basque Culture like we do. You won't pass here just as anyother 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. Later i begun to collaborate with Interior Designe projects - which i love too! -. For the past 5 years I've been leading Gastro-Cultural Tours in town.
Typical wines, cider, beer, vermouth. Water always available.
This is a gastro cultural tour, so for a couple of hours you'll venture in an immersive encounter to stroll around Gros district where we'll stop by in five of the most emblematic spots in the area merging our walk with degustation of the "matchless" pintxos and beverages of the chosen eateries, some historical taverns we've been enjoying for generations and the newest gourmet bars of my neighbourhood.
When booking please: Let me know about any dietary restrictions. We will eat on our feet as usual here ;) Vegetarians & Non drinkers welcome!
