Best of Bilbao with a knowledgeable local guide: Guggenheim Museum, Calatrava Bridge, Food Market, best pintxo bars...

I have been working and studying in Bilbao for more than 12 years and I lived many good moments there. I know most of the corners of this friendly and vibrant city. Let me show them to you!

Guggenheim Museum is a must see for architecture and art lovers in Bilbao, but I will show you also other key places around it: the Old Quarter, the Gran Via with its shops, and we will have opportunity to try best local food (like famous pintxos) and the local white wine called txakoli. . .

Short visit of 4 hours specially prepared for shore stops, extendable or compresable according to your willings.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with Aitor. He picked us up an hour away at the cruise terminal in Santander and we headed to Bilbao. The highlight was The Guggenheim but along the way Aitor described Bilbao history and we viewed other stunning Bilbao architecture. We went to a local eatery that Aitor selected for us and it was perfect! Wonderful local wine, bread, fish and cheeses. Thanks for a memorable day!
