Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were super excited to go on the pinxos tour with Clara as the reviews we’d seen were all brilliant however we were all blown away by the tour - and Clara! We opted for a private tour as there were 6 of us in the group and from the moment Clara met us at the hotel it was as if she was part of our group and had known us for ages! So welcoming, happy and friendly.
The pinxos bars that we were taken to each had their own speciality and weren’t ones you would necessarily go in yourself. The food in each was absolutely gorgeous. We had the wine pairing in each bar which was a bonus- all really gorgeous and as soon as the glasses were empty Clara went to get us a refill ( in we wanted) at no additional cost.
If you go to San Sebastián ( amazing city break) definitely go on this Pinxos tour- it really will be the highlight of your trip

Second time around. So I obviously enjoyed it first time. It was the same guide too. Very friend and knowledgeable. Great to manage the vast array of pintxos and get to head of the queues. Thank you!

We had an amazing experience with Esther. We didn’t know what to expect and thought we had enough Pintxos on our own but we were pleasantly surprised. The multitude of options can be overwhelming but Esther was able to narrow down the option and pair with delicious wine at each location. We went to 4 different locations and at the end she took us to a place to try the best cheesecake. In addition, she provided great conversation about the area and history as well as provided extra resources and ideas for the rest of the trip. She even sent an email the next day with the names for the restaurants and the pinxtos we ate.
She truly went about and beyond! As tired as we were from a day of travel she kept us thoroughly engaged and entertained. We would highly recommend.

Sara was an excellent guide and we had a great time. We learned the backstory of Pintxos, tasted many different classic and innovative dishes, had great wines and ciders to accompany our food, and we left full and happy. We walked everywhere, the town was so alive and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. You simply must do this tour!

Cancelled on the day off the reservation, probably we were the only couple to book and they couldn't be bothered, Disappointing with an hour and halfs notice. Thankfully we rebooked and went on the Foodie, Pintxo, Wine & Market Tour (evening small group) and had a truly excellent time.

Hello. We are sorry we had to cancel our tour. We need a minimum number of 4 guests to do the tour, as detailed in the description. Unfortunately, at the end of the season, we have a few days were we don't reach this amount. We understand your disappointment, but we tried to wait until the very last to make sure there were no last minute reservations. However, we offered to move your reservation to the next day, confirming that this tour was going on. We received your reply the next day, and at that very moment we issued you the refund. If it took longer this was due to Viator paying terms. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. We will try to inform our guests earlier of possible cancellations.l

Clara was beyond amazing. From the moment we met her, she made us feel at home and journeyed with us for several hours through a number of pintxos bars. One of our group did not drink, and Clara always made sure to get something special for her to drink. Clara not only told us about the different pintxos we were eating and what made them special, but she also gave us a bit of history along the way. We were never rushed, and by the end of the afternoon, Clara felt like a friend we were hanging out with as we passed the afternoon in San Sebastian. She also sent us a list of everything we ate after the tour was finished, along with some other recommendations of food places to try (and what we should eat there).

Esther was incredibly helpful and taught us so much about the history of San Sebastián and different pintxos available. She also found some delicious alternatives for me to try as someone who only eats seafood. Would definitely recommend this tour!
