Great fun food and wine tour! Had a great food tour with Olaia. She was so informative, not just about the food and wine, but the history of the region and the local culture too. Great fun! 😊

A Moveable Feast Had a great experience tasting ~2 award-winning appetizers and paired wines (+ one cider) from 5 different bars in (old & new) Bilbao. Led by a very knowledgeable local guide and enjoyed getting to know the other visitors during this “extended “ meal. Highly recommended!

An exceptional La Rioja premium wine tour We had an amazing day visiting La Rioja region and the 3 premium wineries. From start to finish Jani, the tour guide, was extremely informative about the different regions, wineries and culture. We enjoyed the visit to each of the unique wineries, and the wine tasting for all of them was exceptional. The experience of the winery with subterranean wine cellars is one we will never forget. The visit to the town of Laguardia finished the day off nicely before the drive back to Bilbao. Many thanks to all our guides who went the extra mile to accommodate all of our needs and wishes. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the region. Roy & Christine

Best of the Basque Best of the Basque We (my husband and another couple) loved this tour with Jani. Not only did we get to taste some wonderful food and wine, but we also saw some fun local bars/restaurants and enjoyed the company of fellow travellers. Best of all was Jani’s knowledge and enthusiasm for all things Basque. Jani is warm and engaging and we all thoroughly enjoyed our insights into the local history and culture. Big thumbs up from us all.

Brilliant tour, don't hesitate and go in it! A brilliant tour and way to enjoy pintxos. Irene was really friendly, knwoledgable and passionate about her city and the basque country and culture. She took is us 5 different bars and had 2 local pintxos at each, and paired it all with different local wines and ciders - so you definitely got your money and belly's worth. I loved how Irene mixed the more traditional bars and pintxos with the more contemporary/fusion ones too. It was a great way to meet other people and I liked that the tour had around 10 people max. I would highly reccomend the tour and would do so at the beginning of your stay if you can, so you can return to your favourite ones during your stay!

The highlight of our trip I highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Bilbao! Irene was an amazing guide, taking us to pinxos bars we never would have found on our own, and giving us recommendations of other places to eat and drink for the rest of our trip. The food was delicious and the wine was flowing! Accomodations were made to people’s dietary requirements and food preferences. We all left full and very happy. Thank you so much!
