Iker, our city guide was super personable and open-minded. He knew the city inside out. Was very well informed historically and culturally. Iker took us to special tapas bars with a lot of taste and good quality. I can only recommend this tour. Everything was very exciting and entertaining.

The tour far exceeded our expectations. In addition to the wines and the pinxtos, our guide Iker taught us a lot about the history of the city and the Basques. We had a wonderful evening in San Sebastian. This tour is definitely to be recommended!
