The only Food and photography expert-led PINTXO TOUR in Bilbao. Join me for a walking, photographing, eating & drinking experience you'll never forget! We'll visit 5 different bars for a glass & a pintxo (sophisticated Basque tapa) at each one. It's a full meal & exactly what the locals like to do. You'll BE A LOCAL with me! Along the route, I'll show you the sites & tell you about the history & culture of the Basque Country, we will visit the RIBERA MARKET and the surroundings of the Guggenheim Museum, but my focus is definitely on FOOD & DRINK. The menu changes daily depending on the offer we can get in the bars, but we'll do a mix from the traditional to the modern. Expect to eat anchovies, octopus, bacalao in pil-pil sauce, squid, foie gras, local cheese... and ending of course, with a traditional dessert. Thirsty? I'm great at pairing the perfect pour with the perfect plate, from local ciders to white wine (txakoli), young & aged Tempranillo from La Rioja & beyond maybe we'll dip into some vermouth too? Or want to try our local drink Kalimotxo? There's always beer also!
Hello! Kaixo! ¡Hola! I´m Oihana, a Basque- English girl who after travelling around the world wants to help you to discover my home. I have learned from the best at the prestigious school BASQUE CULINARY CENTER of San Sebastian where I ended up with a MASTER DEGREE OF GASTRONOMIC TOURISM. And after that I founded BILBAO FOOD SAFARI where I lead food tours, host wine and craft beer tastings, teach food photography, but my AirBnB experience is all about PINTXOS (these amazing sophisticated tapas). My tours are the kind that feels like travelling with a knowledgeable friend immersing you in our local lifestyle whether you are a food lover or not. I want you to experience and taste Bilbao´s incredible flavours. And be sure I know what to do to avoid making you feel like a tourist. :) Instagram: @oihanaoh

Plan on doing A LOT of walking, 2.5 km (more or less). Eat on your feet, I cannot guarantee to seat on a table (you will understand it when you see it). Alert me of food allergies. Open-minded vegetarians can get by, vegans no, sorry. Non-drinkers you are welcome!.
