Sara was a fantastic tour guide and I’d highly recommend the tour if you’d like to try a variety of Basque tapas and wines, but don’t know where to start :) Extra value add was the follow-up recap of our tour that Sara sent via Whatsapp, including all the food/wine/restaurant names and additional Bilbao restaurant recommendations. Finally, the tour was very well-organized and meeting/finding the group was super easy.

Irene, our guide, was a vibrant and delightful woman who went to great care to choose dishes that were far beyond the typical tapas you get with many tours. She also paid close attention to our food preferences and worked them into the selection. The venues were fun and the food and beverages were delicious. First rate!

Sara was a wonderful guide on the gourmet food toor that I took when I was staying in Bilbao for a couple of nights . It was well worth doing as she gave an insight not alone into the local food but also the culture around it . The different flavours of the Basque Country and the best Bilbao had to offer . I would highly recommend the lively and informative tour with Sara

This was one of the first things we did in our trip to Spain. We went all over the country and had great food but none better than what we ate on this food tour. 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.
