What you'll do

The only CHEF-LED PINTXO TOUR in San Sebastián, join me for a walking, eating & drinking experience you'll never forget!

We'll visit 5 different bars for a glass & a pintxo (Basque tapa) at each one. It's a full meal, a great night out & exactly what the locals like to do. You'll BE A LOCAL with me!

Along the route I'll show you the sites & tell you about the history & culture of the Basque Country, but my focus is definitely on FOOD & DRINK. There's no better way to learn why this is one of the world's most delicious culinary capitols. Oh, I'm also gonna email you a handful of recipes when we're done so you can take the magic home.

My route & the menu changes daily, but we'll do a mix from the traditional to the modern. Expect to dine of anchovies, octopus, bacalao, veal cheeks, foie gras, suckling pig, maybe we'll nibble on a pig ear or two?

Thirsty? I'm great at pairing the perfect pour with the perfect plate, from local ciders to white wine (txakoli), young & aged tempranillo from La Rioja & beyond--maybe we'll dip into some vermouth too? There's always beer too!

We're gonna have a blast, get a good walk in, have some laughs & of course EAT & DRINK VERY WELL.

TOPA!

I'm GREGORY, a chef who has been living, drinking & eating in San Sebastián for 7 years.
I lead food tours, teach cooking classes & host wine tastings, but my AirBnB experience is all about PINTXOS (Basque Tapas).

I am a JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION scholar from California, went to LE CORDON BLEU PARIS & worked on organic farms all over France, Spain & the Basque Country. San Sebastián is now home.

I want to share the culinary culture of the Basque Country with you. On our outing you'll see the sites & learn the history, but it's all about the art of small plates! Eat on your feet like a local.

We'll be walking all over The Old Town & I'll show you the market, the port, some old churches & take you by all the best bars & restaurants. There are hundreds of pintxo bars in the area & you need a local to find the very best!

Don't forget to come hungry, along the way we'll be stopping into 5 of my favorite spots for small plates & great pours. From the traditional to the modern, eat on your feet!

He is very friendly and he has professional knowledge about local history and food. That was impressive to know why this area becomes famous for delicious food. He was in Japan several years and can speak some Japanese words.

Gregory was a great host and storyteller. It was nice to experience the city with someone that could teach us a lot about food and culture. We are loners who like to experience things on our own so this was out of our normal comfort zone but Gregory really made our experience interesting, educational and delightful!

Our experience with Greg was top notch! There are so many pintxos bars it was nice to have an expert take us to the best in San Sebastián and order the specialty on the menu - or sometimes even off the menu!! Those little secrets are what make a tour worth it! Greg has an extensive background in food and wine where his passion for each and in depth explanation of dishes and preparation brought the tour to an entirely different level. The Basque history was something we were unaware of as well so this tour was beyond just food! We can’t rave about this tour enough. It was worth every penny and we highly suggest it.
