    Stop: 3 hours -
    We will walk past several Pintxo (NOT Basque TAPAS) bars to see what they have on offer and maybe venture in for a taste.I will suggest what to get at each stop along the way based on years of local experience. The right food paired with the correct beverage makes all the difference. There are over 200 Pintxo bars in the old town so we will have plenty to choose from. By the time our tour is over (3hrs, 5 drinks and 5 Pintxos) you should be full and feeling GREAT and will also be 10 steps ahead of the other visitors here. You will have plenty of time to continue with your new knowledge and pintxo skills to try some of the other 200+ bars for the remainder of your visit to this foodie paradise.

    Response from sansebastianwalkingt, Owner at A small group San Sebastian Pintxo Crawl with wine tastings-evening (2 pers min)
    Responded 23 Oct 2019
    Dr. Wong, You called us through your hotel operator the evening before the tour (Sept 29th) to let us know that you wanted to cancel your reservation. We offer you cancelling your booking with a refund, which we did not have to do (per our policy, cancellations are refunded if done 7 days in advance or because of a medical emergency). We also sent you 2 messages through TripAdvisor re-instating your wish to cancel and to give you the option to still do the tour. There was no response from your part. We still have those 2 messages on record. We are sorry that you did not get your meeting/confirmation information. Since your booking was through Viator/Trip advisor Experiences and not our webpage directly, they are 100% responsible to send you this information. You should review their service to you and not ours. The guide went to the meeting point at 6:20 pm on the evening of the tour just in case, and you were not at the meeting point. You might have been on 31 de Agosto street, but not at the number 12 of that street where our office is located. We have irrefutable photographic proof that the guide was there until 6:45 pm waiting since we always take photos of the place, so we can record the day/time. We apologise for what happened to you and the bad directions you got from TripAdvisor Experiences. You could have called us directly since our phone is also clearly listed in our listing with TripAdvisor, but we did not receive any call from you on the day of the tour. Respectfully, Keith
