The gastronomy in the Basque Country is known for its quality all over the world, although we know that nowadays internet overwhelms us with information, and get to the appropriate place to taste the best recipes and products can be a matter of luck.

Besides tasting with us the best gastronomy and giving you personalized suggestions following your preferences, we have some surprises for you… Come with us and discover them!
What are the “pintxos”?
They are the most popular miniature cuisine in the Basque Country. This name comes from the verb “pinchar” (prick) in Spanish, but in the Basque Language we write it with “tx” instead of “ch”. That’s because originally we pricked with a toothpick the product or tiny dish upon a basis of bread. But nowadays the cuisine evolved and there are just some pintxos that looks this way.
Nowadays we find a world of flavours in small size… from a simple quality product to a complex cooking.
When we eat pintxos we take one or two of them and we do bar hopping to taste the best pintxos in every bar. That’s how we will do it in the tour!
What does the tour include?
Tasting of 7 pintxos, dessert and 4 drinks in 4 bars and a pastry shop. The amount of food is enough for a meal, but if you want to add more pintxos by your own our guides will suggest you considering your preferences.
We suggest you paring with specific wines in every bar but you can also choose beer, soft drinks or water.
The menu is subject to market’s availability, in case some of the pintxos are not available and we are forced to change them the client will be informed.
