Bilbao Food Tour

We will do as the Basques do! A bar hopping tour of the old part of Bilbao. This activity is referred to as pintxo-pote in the Basque culture. A pintxo is the Basque version of the Spanish tapa accompanied with typical drink (usually wine or a small beer!). Sampling pintxos in the Basque Country is an absolute must! The Basque people demonstrate our love of gastronomy with these tasty little bar snacks.

Absolutely a 10/10 Jani was an amazingly friendly and passionate guide. I loved that she and her family are Basque. She was able to authentically share with us her experience growing up in Bilbao and efforts to preserve the culture and language today. We also learned a lot about La Rioja and visited three wonderful, intimate wineries as well as LaGuardia. And absolute 10 out of 10. She even gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip. Thank you, Jani!!!

Morsom og veldig hyggelig kveld 😊 Morsom opplevelse sammen med hyggelige mennesker, og en fantastisk guide. Olaia anbefales på det varmeste. Maten og drikken hadde noen uvante smaker, men likevel en flott opplevelse.

Great experience - A must do in Bilbao This tour is a "must do" and a wonderful intro to Bilbao. We had the pleasure of having Olaia as our guide. An energetic, charming, and knowledgeable Bilbaína. Along with enjoying delicious pintxos, cider and wine, we also learned about basque culture & history. Highly recommended.
