Bilbao Gourmet Pintxos & Tapas Tour: Essential Part of Being Basque
-We will do as the Basques do! A bar hopping tour of the old part of Bilbao. This activity is referred to as pintxo-pote in the Basque language.
-A pintxo is the Basque version of the Spanish tapa accompanied with typical drink (usually wine or a small beer!).
-Sampling pintxos in the Basque Country is an absolute must! The Basque people demonstrate their love of gastronomy with these tasty little bar snacks.
-The pintxos can be very elaborate or quite simple, and there is something for every taste!
-We know the best bars in the city! 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 Irene and Zach!
-We will also take you on a walking tour of the Casco Viejo or Old Part of Bilbao which dates back to the 1300s.
-In between stops at the bars we will explain unique aspects of Basque culture, history and a few historical sites in the city!
-Throughout this leisurely stroll we will be stopping off at some of our favorite bars for some local drinks and Basque pintxos. Please come hungry, as it is a full meal!
