-We will do as the Basques do! A bar hopping tour of Bilbao. We (the Basque people!) demonstrate our love of gastronomy with these tasty little bar snacks. We will visit 6 BARS WITH 8 PINTXOS AND 6 DRINKS INCLUDED. - We will try the special pintxos, the ones you don't see on the bars! I will order them for you and the chef will make them instantly for you. This is one of the many insider tips I will show you on my tour of Bilbao. -We are going to sample the traditional pintxos and also others that have been given AWARDS in the famous pintxo competitions! You will experience all Bilbao has to offer on this tour with stops at very modern bars, and also stops at some of the oldest bars in the city! -I will teach you how to order pintxos as it can be quite overwhelming to a first time visitor. After my tour you will have the confidence to go in any bar in the city! -I pair the pintxos with a wine most suitable to type of food we are experiencing. We will sample red and white wine, cider, and other drinks on this tour. -I know the best bars in the city and what to order! There are many mentioned online, but you are sure to experience some of the best lesser known local establishments on a Basque pintxo tour with me!
My name is Irene and I am Basque, a foodie, and wine lover who was born and raised in BILBAO. I have been offering pintxo tours of my city for over 5 years. I am also the owner of a local boutique tour company called "The Best of Basque" which is rated first on TripAdvisor. My "Premier Food and Wine Tour of Bilbao" is ranked as the #1 food tour in the city! What I most love is meeting new people on my tours and introducing them to our unique pintxos, local drinks and Basque culture! I also operate wine tours to La Rioja and the local Txakoli wineries. As a result, I have the knowledge and background to pair the best wines with each pintxo.
