The authentic Bilbao basque food tour

Bilbo, Spain

Experience hosted by Adrià

  1. 3 hours
  2. Hosted in English and Spanish

What you'll do

I fell in love with this city a long time ago through its bars and people.
We will go from 4 to 6 bars to ensure that you have tried everything Bilbao has to offer. We will walk around the city from bar to bar discovering the local food, pintxos and the most popular drinks as well.
You will get to know the history of Basque language and the Basque people, differences between Spain and Basque country and the past and present of Bilbao.
I will adapt the route depending on if you are more eager to walk and see places or want to try more local foods. The bars and places we will see on this route are not the main touristy ones, I will bring you to special places for a different reason each.
Other things to note
You will have eaten enough food at the end of the experience so you don't need to think about dinner.
Let me know if you have any food restrictions or want to focus on a specific kind of food or drink

The food culture here in Bilbao made me fell in love with the city and their bars, I have traveled the world several years and lived in 6 different countries, every time some friends come to visit I enjoy showing them Bilbao to a point that now I want to make this a living for myself. I will explain the city through several bars and local spots while enjoying the classic pintxos and some local drinks as well.

Adriá was very personable, knew the history of the region and brought us around to places that he personally would go to with friends. The last cocktail was spectacular!

We had such a blast on this tour with Adrià. He was very friendly, personable and really knew his history and facts about the Basque country and Spain. Our group had many questions and he answered them all in such detail. We tried many different pinchos and drinks across 5 locations. It was the best combination of food tour and city/history tour. Definitely the highlight of our stop in Bilbao. I highly recommend.

Adrià was a good host and guide. Experience felt a bit transactional and disorganized at times. All around though the food and drinks were great!

I was really amazed by our host’s knowledge of all things related to the Basque region. The food was also great. It was well picked and actually more than I probably should have eaten. I would rebook this tour in a heartbeat.
