A Recent Review of this tour

Sergio gave us a fabulous tour of the Guggenheim Museum and old town Bilbao. He made it interesting and fun. He imparted a lot of information and certainly peaked our interest in the basque country. We will definitely be back to see more and learn more about this part of the world. He also was very helpful with details like where to store our luggage as we were only there for the day. Thank you Sergio!
