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.

“Best Ever Birthday in San Sebastian”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

I was going to San Sebastian with my boyfriend so I signed up for a Pintxo's tour for his birthday with San Sebastian Food. I thought it would be a great way to spend his birthday and meet new people. We went to San Sebastian Food to meet our guide and found out we were the only ones on that night who had signed up. For a second I was afraid they might cancel or postpone but no way we met our guide Eli and off the 3 of us went. It was a wonderful evening with Eli showing us around the Old Town and the best Pintxo's I EVER tasted. Eli was very fun to be with and very informative on the Pintxo's bars and food we had. Eli even had a little candle for Joe's birthday cheesecake at our last tasting. We were having such a good time we hated to see the night end. we found our way back the next night to some of the same places Eli took us to and enjoyed the food a second time it was so very good. We also went to the San Sebastian Food store and everyone there was very helpful. We hope to go back to San Sebastian in the near future and we will be taking somemore of the tours and maybe a cooking class. We LOVE San Sebastian and San Sebastian food. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone it is well worth going. ELI YOUR THE BEST!

“THE BEST”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

One of the best activities I've ever done while traveling. We had a great group and an even better guide, Eli. She is the BEST! She was extremely accommodating, FUN, sweet and super knowledgeable about the pintxos scene. We took the tour on our first night in San Sebastian, and it really helped us get our bearings of parte vieja as well. I cannot say enough good things about the tour. Everything was great- food, company, and guide. We also stopped by their new shop the next day and both people were extremely helpful and nice as well. Great company all around.

“San Sebastian Culinary Tour”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

After reading about the San Sebastian Culinary Tour in a local paper in Montreal we immediately booked a date for our upcoming visit of this food mecca of a city. It's too bad it was on our last night there! Eli, our amazing guide, took us to a delicious variety of venues to share the food diversity and local traditions. I recommend doing it early on in your stay so that you can go back to the locales serving frech and creative dishes.

“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.
