Bilbao & Tapas

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $139 USD / Adult
Set out to experience the savory Bilbao tradition of sharing pintxos with new friends. Pintxos are the city’s own take on Spanish tapas and your local guide knows just where to take you for the best eats in the city. You’ll start out with a narrated drive that showcases Bilbao’s spectacular transformation from the industrial to the artful, crowned by the addition of the stunning Guggenheim Museum. Arrive at Bilbao’s Old Quarter to begin your culinary exploration. Stroll through narrow streets dotted with Renaissance, Baroque and Modernist architecture. Meander past the 14th-century Cathedral of Santiago and into the Plaza Nueva, a lovely arcaded square. During your walk, you’ll stop at various bars to savor scrumptious selections of pintxos paired with fine Spanish wine. Enjoy a taste of local cuisine and culture before wrapping things up with a panoramic photo opportunity of Bilbao from the Archanda Viewpoint. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
