What you'll do

I fell in love with this city a long time ago through its bars and people.
We will go from 4 to 6 bars to ensure that you have tried everything Bilbao has to offer. We will walk around the city from bar to bar discovering the local food, pintxos and the most popular drinks as well.
You will get to know the history of Basque language and the Basque people, differences between Spain and Basque country and the past and present of Bilbao.
I will adapt the route depending on if you are more eager to walk and see places or want to try more local foods. The bars and places we will see on this route are not the main touristy ones, I will bring you to special places for a different reason each.
Other things to note
You will have eaten enough food at the end of the experience so you don't need to think about dinner.
Let me know if you have any food restrictions or want to focus on a specific kind of food or drink

The food culture here in Bilbao made me fell in love with the city and their bars, I have traveled the world several years and lived in 6 different countries, every time some friends come to visit I enjoy showing them Bilbao to a point that now I want to make this a living for myself. I will explain the city through several bars and local spots while enjoying the classic pintxos and some local drinks as well.

Adria has deep knowledge of the history, politics, economics and culture of the Basque Country - an enlightening three hours of conversation with a variety of food and locations. After the tour we kept in touch and he shared great tips in response to questions we had about Bilbao! Thank you very much!!

Where to even start with our review of the pintxos tour we took with Adrià... it’s hard to put into words how great of a time we had. He is so knowledgeable about Basque culture, the city of Bilbao, history, delicious pintxos and drinks and Spain as a whole. With his history in Catalunya, it was great to hear of the differences between that culture and Bilbao’s. Adrià picked out the best bars, food and drinks to ensure we had the best night. We could have spent hours and hours with him, we left feeling like we made a great friend. We can’t say enough good about this tour, it was fantastic and it made our short time in Bilbao spectacular. We really felt like we really saw the best of the city and were a part of the culture.

I really enjoyed this Pintxo pub crawl with Adria. He knew a lot about the history of wine and food in the Basque region, but what really set it apart was how much he was able to share about the political, cultural and economic history of the region. I'd recommend this experience to anyone looking to find the best Pintxo stops in Bilbao and spend time with a knowledgeable local.

This was a great tour! Adrià showed us many places I wouldn’t have been able to find on my own. He’s a great storyteller, able to dive into the culture, history, and politics of Bilbao. A wonderful experience.
