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.

I cannot recommend the Pintxo tour with Mimo San Sebastian highly enough! Our guide Lourdes – who was recommended to us by my twin sister who met her the year before was an absolute dream and an asset to her company. Her passion and enthusiasm for the local history, culture and cuisine was truly infectious. She immediately treated us like... More

We were lucky to have Eli as our guide who not only showed us a great night with abundant pinxtos and particular drink pairings at each stop, but also set us up with a list of places and things to try in the days after. There were 6 different stops with great variety in terms of types of food from... More

Our group of four (two couples), booked a pintxo tour with Mimo San Sebastian on a Tuesday night, the first night we got into town. We were lucky enough to have Lourdes as our guide.

We took the evening Pinxto tour. Our guide, Eli, took us to 6 different local bars/restaurants where we sampled everything from prawn skewers to lamb to cheesecake alongside typical Spanish wines. Eli's knowledge of the city and its culinary history was superb. We also got a lot of recommendations for other restaurants and places to visit on day trips (e.g.... More

I planned my trip from San Francisco to take cooking classes in San Sebastian and also explore Spain. Took 3 cooking classes ( Basque, Pinxo, Michellin Star classes). All the classes were so good and food that we cooked and ate there exceeded my expectation for sure. Pintxo class was probably my favorite and it also makes a difference depending... More

Nothing more to say than 'fantastic'...a great intro to the pintxos bars of San Sebastián. Eli was a great host. Don't miss it. A bit pricey but worth it.

What a fantasstic tour it was! We love the Bars and Food Culture in San Sebastien. Our guide, Lourdes was warm and sweet and her recomended 6 Bars and 15 kinds of pintxos was perfect and fantastic. This Pixtos Tour was our best experience during our staying in Spain.

This was one the highlights of our time in San Sebastián, my husband Eamonn and I enjoyed wonderful Pixtos, beautiful complimenting wines and local knowledge and history provided by Lourdes who grew up in the old town - made it extra special.

What a brilliant introduction to San Sebastián and to Pintxo Food Culture! Lourdes, our guide, was warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and humourous-an absolute pleasure to spend a great evening with. We visited at least half a dozen Pintxos Bars and sampled a great range of different styles of Basque food and superb, local wines. Don't miss this wonderful tour!!
