⭐The High End Food Tour Of Bilbao

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Bilbao, Spain, Arategizar 22, 48005 Bilbao Spain

    Join us in this gastronomic walking tour of Bilbao led by a chef and you will taste the best seafood, miniature cuisine and pintxos of Northern Spain and at the same time you will discover the hidden spots and brief history of Bilbao.

    Everything will be paired with the traditional drinks of Northern Spain: local ciders, alabriños (from Galicia), txakolis, riojas and beyond. Leave it in my hands it is our speciality!

    This experience is all about food, drinks and the beauty of Bilbao. You will feel like basque people: walking along the Nervion river, sitting in terraces for a drink and hopping from bar to bar pairing the best local food with drinks.

    You will learn a lot of interesting stories about Basque Country and I will show you the "essential local rules" to order the best food when you are on your own.
