Food Tour Guides Needed

Status: We accept applications on a rolling basis for vacancies that may open up throughout the year.

Do you love San Sebastian and Spain? Do you love Spanish food? Can you command a crowd, make them listen and make them laugh? Then you might be a perfect candidate for a job as a food tour guide with Devour San Sebastian. We’re currently looking for qualified and enthusiastic guides. If you think you might be the right person, check the application requirements below and get in touch.

What makes a great food tour guide?

You need to make a great first impression, be a fantastic storyteller, have an infectious sense of humor, be adept at thinking quickly on your feet, be responsible and detail-oriented and be empathetic and highly sensitive to people’s backgrounds, cultures, and differences.

We want people who are passionate about San Sebastian, Spain, and this country’s cuisine, and who know how to communicate that passion to others and make them as excited as you.

What we offer

Guides give approximately 2 to 5 tours a week (depending on the season and including daytime and nighttime shifts), and each tour lasts an average of four hours. Once you’re all trained up, you’ll earn €17-20/hour per-tour rate (plus IVA) plus generous tips. Guides also receive friends and family discounts on our tours as well as continuous free training about San Sebastian and Spanish food and drink while working for us.

Applicants must

  • Have a native or very high level of English, with a high level of Spanish
  • Be allowed to work in Spain and registered (or willing to register) as an autónomo

As an ethical employer, we only work with autónomo guides, meaning you can legally invoice us and we can legally pay you. Becoming autónomo is very easy (we can help get you set up).

Please note: if you are on a student visa this does not allow you to be autónomo and unfortunately means you’re not able to work with us.

  • Have lived in San Sebastian for at least one year
  • Have a smartphone and be easily reachable via it to advise about last minute tours, tour changes and other information (whether via Whatsapp, SMS or email)
  • Have access to internet at home and check their email at least once a day; and
