Full description
Bilbao has evolved into a true gastronomic and architectural hotspot. It's a city with hundreds of bars, each with their own set of traditions and specialties. On this Bilbao food tour, one of our guides will accompany you, taking you to the unique places in town, away from the tourist traps. During our Bilbao Food Tour, you'll learn which pintxos (Basque tapas) to order in each location, how the Basques serve their dishes, and, of course, the most traditional plates and drinks. Your Bilbao food tour will be led by an expert culinary guide, allowing you to sample the best Basque cuisine. You will sample high-end Basque cuisine, including the number one pintxo, the gilda, the best cod, and the super tasty Cantabric crab, among many others. Your guide will also help you understand the origins and ingredients of each dish you try. We will recommend various local drinks to pair with your food in each location, ranging from red wine and Basque cider to Txakoli white wine and craft beers. If you prefer, you can always substitute non-alcoholic beverages for the drinks recommended in each bar. Bilbao is a very walkable city, and our Bilbao food tour will allow you to explore the city's hidden corners on foot. Depending on the day, the itinerary may include visits to the Old Town, markets, or the expansion's newer areas. We will stop in bars and cafés along the way as you learn about the city's history, culture, and customs.
