Owner description: Your first taste of txakoli, the sight of a bar filled with tapas, the smell of fresh olive oil being pressed, the feel of thinly sliced jamon iberico between your fingers...your senses are sharper at the source. We believe travel should be unique and personal, but most of all, it should be authentic. Explore a culture through its food and drink, its producers and chefs and the love and "mimo" they put into all their creations. Since we were founded in San Sebastian, Spain, in 2009, we strive to bring the mimo to visitors who want to immerse themselves in local food culture. Live the Mimo experience on our culinary tours, at our gourmet shops in San Sebastian (San Sebastian Food) and Sevilla (Mimo Sevilla), as well as in our luxury cooking school located in the Hotel Maria Cristina in the centre of San Sebastian. Our team of locals is passionate about sharing their culture, offering a taste of its delicious dishes, and welcoming you into the Mimo family.

“The perfect late Autumn treat!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

This is a great way to become oriented with the old town and pick out the best of the myriad of tapas bars available. I went back to these every night before sampling some of the other bars on offer. Agus was a great host and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone planning a visit to San Sebastian.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We had such a great time with the Pintxos tour. Elle did an outstanding job for having such a large party. She accommodated us at the last minute. She is very knowledgable with local Pintxos bar scene and we learned a lot.
Also learned Manchester United has a large fan base that follows the team all over and man can they party!!!!

“Pinxtos tour”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Agos took me and my family on a great tour of the amazing pinxtos bars that grace the old town of San Seb.
He took us to places we definitely would have overlooked had we went out on our own
and hand picked the best house specialities. The pacing was great, the food and wine
were delicious, what a great night out. On our last night in SS, we retraced our footsteps with
Agos and did one more round of culinary delights!
I would also add that the booking was super easy, everyone who works there speaks great English and are very accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks again guys!

“Learn how to enjoy Tapas like the Spanish”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Our travel agent had organised this tour. We went on our 2nd night. I wish we had made it first night. As a tourist on night 1 we choose from the bar. The tour taught us to choose from the blackboard menu. The food was better and the places we were shown terrific. Night 3 by ourselves was so much better.

A fantastic tour of the old town with the history explained to us and a number of superb Pinxtos bars visited as well. Our tour guide, Augus, was superb and I would not hesitate in recommending this tour to anyone.
