Bilbao: Pinchos and Wine Tasting Tour with Local Guide

1. Bilbao: Pinchos and Wine Tasting Tour with Local Guide

Our pintxo discovery experience begins at Ribera Market, the largest covered food market in Europe and where Michelin star bosses and ordinary citizens stock up on some of the best food the city has to offer. We want you to understand the importance of food in how we relate to each other and the special little tricks to doing it like a local. Then it's time to dive into the old town and its hidden secrets, so our first stop would be one of the classic bars where the "txikiteros", the local wine drinkers, sing songs as they drink. If we are lucky, we have the option to share with them a wine and a classic aperitif discussing the traditions and symbols of the Basque Country. Next, we will go to the emblematic Plaza Nueva, to taste 2 pintxos and learn about the local Basque wine: Txakoli in one of its local bars. Once we have visited the old town, we will cross the river to enter the Ensanche, the economic center of the city. We will visit a very historic bar and we will have the opportunity to taste Rioja wines, as well as pintxos that mix the most advanced cuisine with the most traditional flavors of local products. Your tour ends here, where you will not only be filled with delicious pintxos, but also gain a new insight into the local culture and traditions. And most importantly, you will feel like an authentic Bilbao.

My friend and I booked this tour last minute and were SO happy we did. Roberto personalized the tour to my dietary needs, which I was grateful for. Not only did we learn about Bilbao, eat and drink, but we also got to walk through the streets and get all the local tips. Roberto was kind and patient with our questions! Highly recommend.

Our guide Oscar was absolutely amazing! He took us to some traditional & more modern bars where we tried beautiful wine & pinchos. Oscars knowledge of Bilbao was incredible & he shared so much information with us about the history of beautiful Bilbao. Highly recommend this tour, only wish it was for longer.

Roberto was fantastic :) He took us to places we would not have picked ourselves and they were awesome. Great food, good vine and marianito and the best guide. Highly recommended

Very much fun touring with Oscar through unknown spots in Bilbao. Excellent food and drinks and a lot of stories making the style of living in Bilbao vivid, Thanks a lot!!

Simply top notch! Really good! A great introduction to the (culinary) life of Bilbao.
