Expensive for what it was

Javier our guide was great, very knowledgeable, engaged and friendly with excellent English. The tour is a bit too long at three hours and the Pintxos and drinks were tasty but small portions and measures. It’s caught between a basic guided tour of the city and a food tasting event and doesn’t quite work on either account. At £70 each it’s a lot of money for what you get. Given that the Pintxos are about €1-2 each as is a small beer/local wine and you only get three it’s not value for money.
