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!

Sam is born and raised in Bilbao, so he could give a local’s perspective for everything. It was quite nice to learn all these about the Basque Country. The best experience for me was to wander through the old town, especially the very busy Pintxos bar area where lots of people were out and about late Saturday night. What an experience!"..."

Biarritz, Saint Jean de Luz, Hondarribia and San Sebastian Full Day Tour
"Great tour! Stefan was a great guide. I went in November 2021. Because of Covid we couldn’t go to the French side, no Bearritz and no Saint Jean Dr Luz. I actually liked it that we could spend more time in Hondarribia and San Sebastián. We also went to Getaria. Although it was short and rainy, I was happy we went because it was the filming location of the movie Spanish Affair. Stefan suggested the movie Spanish Affair to us. When I watched it after the tour I was delighted to see how many specific details about the Basque Country I could pick up. I highly recommend you seeing the movie after the tour. And do learn some Basque phrases. It’s fun! Kaixo means Hello Agur means bye Eskerrik asko means thank you Couple of tips: 1. Wear layers. It could be very cold especially along the coast. 2. Do try out different Pintxo bars in San Sebastián. I recommend the dish served in a crab’s shell. I don’t know what it was called but it was delicious. I saw at least two places serving it and both times it was great. The name of the Pintxo bars are Casa Alcade and Baztan 3. Don’t be afraid of the crowd in front of the bar. There is no line. Simply grab a ordering sheet with numbers, survey the offering in the bar, and pick your dish. Alternatively you can order Pintxo Caliente from the black board"..."
