Our tour with Christina was beyond incredible! She is fun and brilliant and knows her way around San Sebastian and it’s eateries! We enjoyed Pinchos at five locations and had amazing wine and cider that was paired with each selection! Her knowledge of the region and its history and culture both ancient and modern was spectacular! She also gave us advice on the rest of our travels in northern Spain and the Basque country! I would recommend going on this tour to Everyone visiting san Sebastian! She is incredibly gracious as a host!

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 right in old town to begin the tour, 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!

Cristina was lovely. She was so helpful and informative on the city, food, drink and culture. We’d happily have her as a guide on all our trips if she could make it!
