Food Tour Bilbao Spain

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 their love of gastronomy with these tasty little bar snacks.

Excellent tour guide and food recommendations I was so glad I booked this. It was really great value and we got to try so many different pinxtos and local drinks that I would have never known about. Our guide, Olaia, was fantastic and made sure everyone felt looked after. She was able to give us so many hints and tips about what to check out around the city. Would recommend to anyone as one of your first stops in Bilbao.

A Perfect Evening of Pinchos and Wine. Started in Bilbao’s Old Town with a selection of pinchos paired with wine, Spanish of course. Local guide irena was festive, patient and knowledgeable. Her enthusiasm was infectious, I came from a similar tapas tour in Madrid and this one was more substantial and more interesting.
