This food tour was excellent! The host (Irene) was so passionate about the food and talking about the basque culture, which was so interesting to learn about. The Pintxos were all so delicious as well and wine pairings perfect. We do a lot of food tours when we travel and this is one of the best we have done in the last few years. Thank you Irene for a wonderful time in Bilbao! We wish we had more days here.

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.
