We loved every minute of this tour. Irene was very knowledgeable, fun and passionate about what she does. I was overwhelmed by all of the delicious-looking pintxos that the excellent establishments of Bilbao have to offer. Irene helped us understand how to get the most out of our “pintxos hopping” experience.
The selection of pintxos bars and food was great. It was made even greater by the effervescent explanations and personal experiences of our Basque guide, Irene. I will recommend this tour to all first time visitors to Bilbao, especially if the tour is guided by Irene!
Learn all about traditional pintxos (the Basque version of Spanish tapas) on a guided walking tour of Bilbao's bars. At each stop, sample one or two of these delightful little bar snacks accompanied with a glass of wine, beer, or hard cider. Get an insider's perspective of the ancient part of the city that dates back to 1300.

On time pick-up. Private tour with only our party. Competent and friendly tour guide. Interesting and informative tours at the wineries by their personnel. Tasting of top shelf wines. Ample time without being rushed through. No sales pitch. definitively worth the money.
We were a group of 4 adults who had a fabulous day with Fernando our guide! He was prompt with a great van that safely took us to 2 very different vineyards, one small and private and intimate. The other was a producer of large volumes of wine but we were able to see the production side of the business. Then we travelled to the town of Laguardia for a walk through the town with talk of its history and lunch with a tasting of pintxos and beverages. So wonderful I would definitely recommend!!!
The whole tour was perfect! Rachel was nice and very well prepared with all information - from historic to touristic - needed to make our tour very enjoyable! The wineries were great and also the city of LaGuardia, with its walls and churches from around 1200! And to make it even better the mountains make it a perfect scenery!

The guide was so warm, fun, and we got an authentic experience of the pintxos in Bilbao. The jamon iberico de bellota and crab in bechamel were among the best foods we’ve ever eaten. Lots of food and an amazing tour in Bilbao. Thank you to our guide for this unforgettable experience.

Despite it being a chilly, rainy morning, our guide Sam made our three-hours together one of the high points of our visit to Bilbao. When, because of the rain, we were unable to find a taxi, he came to us by foot and "saved the day". He was extremely knowledgeable and congenial - even went to the trouble of learning some Hebrew in preparation for our visit. Despite our visit to the Old City the evening before, he showed us interesting historical sites which we never would have discovered on our own. We enjoyed a previous successful tour by Viator in Lisbon, and find your guides to be most competent and pleasant.
Despite the weather, we had a companionable guide, Nick, who showed us many good features of Bilbao. We had a coffee and lunch break, which we enjoyed as well. Nick is to be recommended for showing us around.
Spectacular day and we could not rate higher
Our guide and driver Joseba Villarino was brilliant
He made this day special.
From the San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, a castle on the rock at sea to the amazing geological wonder of Flysch Zumaia, our day added so much to our Basque region adventure
