Hector was an amazing guide. As he’s a local to San Sebastián he gave us just the right amount of history and daily life & culture to really get to grips with this fabulous city. The food on the tour was excellent , super fresh and varied. We wouldn’t have had the ability to experience these little unknown family run restaurants unless you had a guide. Also as we don’t have Spanish never mind Basque (local dialect) it made it all effortless. Hector guided us through the warren of beautiful and fascinating little streets while pointing out hidden places and of course we had lots of food and drinks along the way. This tour is a must while in San Sebastián ........ thanks Hector

Best food tour ever! Ania was friendly, engaging and informative. The Pintxos were superb, each and every one of them. With her background knowledge and connections, we clearly knew what we were tasting and why. We were made to feel very special in the bars we visited, and Ania made every effort to adapt to our needs and preferences. We had been on a more expensive higher-rated tour two nights earlier, which we had enjoyed, but this one was streets ahead, both by the food and by the guide. I would go out of my way to try more Devour experiences in future, after sampling this one.
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!
Iker was professional, informative and far exceeded my highesthopes or expectations for the tour.
