Trying new foods is a huge part of visiting new places, but it is always difficult to find the best places to try authentic dishes. You could wander around randomly choosing places to eat, you could spend hours reading reviews online, or you could just join us for our food tour. If you choose the latter option, I will take you to some of our favorite places and will guide you as you try a variety of tasty and authentic Basque Food. As we make our way through the bustling streets of the Downtown and the Old Town, we will stop to sample a variety of Bilbao’s favorite foods, its specialties, and more. You’ll have a chance to sample 14-15 different food and drinks, ending with a delectable dessert. This is definitely not a tour to start on a full stomach! It can easily substitute for a meal. I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our favorite Basque dishes!

I went on this tour in late January and had an awesome time! I thought this would be a great introduction to my short stay in Bilbao so booked a few weeks in advance for my first night in the city. Late January is a quiet time for tourism in Spain and by chance I ended up being

This was amazing, Patrizia was so knowledgeable about all the food, where it came from, the history of each place we visited and really wonderful company. I can highly recommend this tour, a must do when visiting Bilbao. I would definitely do this again.
