⭐The Premier Food & Wine Tour of Bilbao

    What to Expect
    -We will do as the Basques do! A bar hopping tour of the old part of Bilbao with a local born and raised in Bilbao. This unique gastronomic experience is an absolute must when visiting the Basque Country!
    -A pintxo is the Basque version of the Spanish tapa accompanied with typical drink (usually wine or a small beer!). The Basque people demonstrate their love of gastronomy with these tasty little gourmet bar snacks that are found throughout the city.
    -The pintxos can be very elaborate or quite simple, and there is something for every taste! We will also be sampling some great wines along the way!
    -We know the best bars in the city! There are many mentioned online, but you are sure to experience some of the best lesser known local establishments on a Bilbao pintxo tour! We know the best pintxos to order in each bar!
    -We will also take you on a private guided tour of the Casco Viejo or Old Part of Bilbao which dates back to the 1300s.
    -In between stops at the bars we will point out sites such as the Santiago Cathedral, San Anton Church, the Ribera Market, etc...
