Amazing!! The Pintxo scene in San Sebastian can be a bit intimidating and Cristina was crucial in helping us navigate and get the best of what the bars have to offer! She was friendly, informative and easygoing. I strongly recommend spending a few hours with this lovely person!
Completely unexpected. Loved the farm tour!
Something unexpected and out of the ordinary in a trip to San Sebastián. It was great to get out of the center and into an organic small farm that is giving back to the community. Cristina met me at gorgeous café where she treated me to a delicious smoothie and quiche before we headed out for a short train ride to the eco farm. She was an excellent guide and interpreter. We had a tour of the eco farm and sampled some greens and tomatoes along with some cider. It was a good education on what it takes to run a completely organic farm. They also provide work for disadvantaged people. I recommend this short tour as a respite from the eternal beach.
Great experience with a very knowledgeable host. We went to several unique and popular spots where the locals go for pinchos. I highly recommend you do this.
I recommend it 100%, Cristina was charming and a great guide.
Cristina was extremely informative about everything that we did. She had a well planned out itinerary and answered any question I had. I had a very enjoyable and educational trip and I would recommend it to anyone visiting San Sebastián.
If you like food, this is for you!
If you like food, and are interested in produce and where your food comes from, this is a great trip. The guide was both very knowledgeable, helpful and kind. In addition to the tour itself, we got lots of tips on food, San Sebastian in general and the surrounding area. Had a really great time!
Thank you for being such an amazing guide Cristina!
Thank you for being such an amazing guide Cristina! Your knowledge and passion have showed us how much history, culture and fun there is around pintxos. I’m delighted that I booked it and I definitely recommend it.
Cristina was a wonderful host!
Cristina was a wonderful host! She had a fantastic understanding of her subject matter, took us to some great little spots and took care of everything. We could not have asked for a better day!
Cristina has a lot of knowledge.
Cristina has a lot of knowledge not only about the food, but also about San Sebastián. It’s obvious that she really loves what she’s doing and she also loves to share with others. I enjoyed the evening very much.
Fantastic experience, wholeheartedly recommend!
A friend and I met Cristina on the first night of our trip to San Sebastián and the tour exceeded all our expectations. The combination of good food, excellent local wines and cider and Cristina’s knowledge of the Basque Country made for a fantastic evening that I can’t recommend enough. Cristina took us around some of the San Sebastián sights and told us the history of the city, gave some excellent advice on how to make sure we got the best pintxos experience and was generally really great to be around. We especially appreciated her follow up email and suggestions for where to eat and drink next.
All in all, this is an amazing tour and the fact that Cristina is operating on a social good basis as well is even better – what a fantastic this to do!
Can’t recommend highly enough and, thank you Cristina – we wish you huge success in the future, you deserve it.
The only pintxo tour that matters
I lucked out and managed to get a private tour with Cristina on a cold,rainy Monday -and I was so grateful that she didn’t cancel.
The pintxo bars were thoughtfully selected by Cristina and all had an interesting backstory to them – whether it was THE place that the first pintxo was created, or if it is a beautiful family-run establishment.
The food and drinks were impeccable, so much so that I forgot to take photos of most of them! Cristina’s warm, friendly disposition made the experience feel like I was out pintxo hopping with a friend.
Moreover, with every tour purchased Eat One Feed One will provide a warm meal for a person in need, and that makes this whole experience so special.
Highlight of our trip to Spain, loved it!
My husband, 2 teenagers and I had a wonderful evening with Cristina yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed her company, pintxos recommendations and great insights into the past and present day San Sebastian. This lady knows her stuff, is a real foodie and kept us entertained all evening, a real people person. Her follow-up was also excellent with an email on all the places we had visited and other recommendations. I wish we were staying longer and could take her up on these but hopefully next time !!
DELICIOUS!!! A tour not to be missed!
My partner and I met Cristina for her Eat One Feed One Social Impact food tour on Saturday night. We had been recommended her tour with glowing reviews and they were absolutely right.
Cristina was so warm, welcoming and full of knowledge! We loved that the tour not only included amazing food but also a comprehensive history of San Sebastian (and Basque culture).
We loved that each dish we tried was varied from traditional to modern style pintxos and the drinks were different (and tasty) at each place.
Ordering pintxos can be a little overwhelming for someone new to San Sebastian but Cristina gave us the confidence to go out and order pintxos for the rest of our stay. It is for this reason that we recommend doing the tour with Cristina at the beginning of your holiday in San Sebastian like we did.
Cristina also provided a thoughtful email after our tour with a lovely photo and an extensive list of recommendations (pintxos, wine, icecream etc!) for us to try during the rest of our stay. We did not stray from this list and we can definitely say all of the recommendations we tried were absolutely delicious!!!
We could say more but you will find out on the tour 🙂
Thank you Cristina!!! We hope to see you again when we return to San Sebastian.
Eat you way trough San Sebastián!!
If you Travel to San Sebastián you MUST do this food tour!! Cristina is an amazing guide, very knowledgeable on San Sebastián history and on the best places to go for pintxos. She would explain how to approach the food scene and a few tricks and secrets of this amazing Town!! Highly highly recommended!
Best way to eat your way through San Sebastian!
Cristina was the most incredible host we could have ever asked for. We were able to schedule with her only the day the before, and she had GREAT communication, allowing us to message back and forth before we actually booked (we wanted to clarify that it was okay to have children on the tour with us – which she said was fine, even with a 4 year old and 1 year old!) We met Cristina for a private tour to, she found us immediately, introduced herself, and we could instantly see her passion for food, community, and friendship (kuadrillas)! She made us feel as though we had been friends for years! Her history and experience as a chef was immediately obvious as she had extensive knowledge about the history, preparation, and ingredients of the food we ate. She took us to the BEST pintxo places in San Sebastian, shared the best drinks with us, and even ordered special drinks and items for our 4-year-old, and held her hand walking down the street! We saw about 8 people during our tour that knew her, hugged her, and exclaimed that she was the best tour guide in the area (which we already knew by this point)! She was incredibly patient with our children, letting us take our time from place to place, and encouraging the children to try the new foods and drinks. She taught us so much about the Spanish and Basque food, culture, and language.
We all agreed that it was the highlight of our whole trip to Spain! She was kind enough to give us a summary of everywhere we went, everything we ate, and everything we drank! So we went out the next night with a few of her recommendations, and realized that the VERY BEST way to eat your way through San Sebastian is WITH HER! We are so grateful to have experienced her knowledge and passion for food and people. We would consider returning to San Sebastian just to do another food tour with her! Thank you Cristina!
