Discover the beautiful city of Bilbao through its unique food: pintxos Experience poteo, which basically means hopping from bar to bar drinking wine and eating pintxos – just like a local! Enjoy the culture, mingling with locals, and joining your own cuadrilla, group of close Basque friends Taste 4 different pintxos and 3 drinks Visit a vibrant local food market
Our Bilbao food and walking and tour starts at Ribera Market, the largest covered food market in Europe and where both Michelin Star chefs and ordinary citizens stock up on some of the best food the city has to offer. After visiting the market, it’s time to dive into the Old Town. Navigating narrow streets, we’ll visit different pintxo areas, stopping in picturesque bars, and absorbing the local atmosphere. As we walk, you’ll also be learning about the close relationship between gastronomy and emblematic sites such as The Cathedral of Santiago or Plaza Nueva. We will talk about wines, and about txikiteros, the local wine drinkers who sing songs while drinking, and of course, we will taste the best reflection of Basque gastronomy: pintxos. Once we have visited the Old Town, we’ll cross the river to enter the Ensanche, the economic center of the city and where poteo is also practiced. Here we’ll have the chance to taste Rioja wines, as well as pintxos that mix the most avant-garde cuisine with the most traditional flavours of local products. Your tour ends here, where you’ll not only be full of tasty pintxos, but also have a newfound knowledge of local culture and traditions. And most importantly, you’ll feel like an authentic Bilbaíno.
