Awesome experience. No way we would have been able to do what we did and experience what we experience without Griffin and Ane. It was immersive, friendly, delicious, top!! Highly recommended.

Griffin made this spectacular Pinxtos tour extremely special. His warmth and connection with people is a real charm - he has lots of buddies (to use his word) in the restaurants, bars and even on the streets people stop and say hello, and you can see why! He has really great insight into all of the Basque culture, history and food and drink and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening together. Seriously fun, really exceptional food choices and great company. Very much recommend. Thank you!

Had an amazing evening with Griff. He showed us some great spots to eat and drink in San Sebastian. We also got to learn a bit about the city and its history in a fun way. After the tour, he sent us loads of recommendations (some personalised) and it made the rest of our trip easy to plan. We wouldn't have understood the culture and had as rich an experience as we did without going on this tour.

He has a wide and deep knowledge on the city, culture, history, and food of course. Amazing point is that, he involves the participants into the tour by making a good communication. He does not only explain as an excellent guide, but also to be interested in personal background of the participants. Thanks to him, I had a great time in San Sebastían!! I have to add that his English is easy to understand and I can recommend him to those who are not good at English.
