Full description

Discover the gastronomic and architectural offerings of Bilbao on this guided food-tasting and city walking tour. Go off the beaten path, staying well away from tourist traps, as you learn about the city's history and culture and try the local fare.

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. Walk along with your expert culinary guide, and sample the best Basque cuisine. Try the popular gilda pintxo, the best cod, and the super tasty Cantabric crab, among many others. Learn from your guide about the origins and ingredients of each dish you try. Get recommendations for 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. Enjoy exploring the city's hidden corners on foot in a city made for walking. Depending on the day, the itinerary may include visits to the Old Town, markets, or the expansion's newer areas. Stop in bars and cafés along the way as you learn about the city's history, culture, and customs.
