Bilbao Pintxos Tour Description

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.
