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.

Joyous introduction to Basque food and drink led by exceptional host Olaia. Fabulous well constructed tour led by wonderful, vibrant host Olaia. Convivial company and great selection of bars with award wining wines and food. The tour is centred on the old town, so it’s compact and accessible. Great introduction to basque culture and food. Good value for money.
