Bilbao, Rioja and Haro with private guide and transport


Two full day tours in one as we go for a tasting tour at the wine bodegas around Haro in the Rioja wine district in the morning before returning to Bilbao for a visit to the Guggenheim and to enjoy the stunning views of Bilbao from the Artxanda Hill and maybe sit down and have a rest in the shade under the trees in the park. Then we take the car down to the old town where we end our day with a walking tour and I introduce you to the famous pintxos at Plaza Nueva.

Come along for a scenic tour around some of the most beautiful sights of both Bilbao and Rioja while you learn about the regions history and enjoy the best of the famous local wine and gastronomy having both a delicious Rioja style lunch at a traditional restaurant in Haro and later on a pintxo-tour in Bilbao's old town.

A chance to experience the beautiful buildings and sights of Bilbao combined with a Rioja wine trip that includes visiting some of the most prestigious bodegas in Spain and of course tasting fantastic wine.

Itinerary

Pick up at the cruise ship terminal and then a 60 minute ride to Haro, the wine capital of Rioja, in a private air conditioned car. We visit some of the most prestigious bodegas for a tasting tour before we go into town for a Rioja style lunch at a traditional restaurant.

After lunch we return to Bilbao and visit the beautiful Guggenheim museum and admire its famous architecture. Then we take the short ride up to Artxanda Hill for stunning views all over Bilbao.

Afterwards we set out to explore the historic old town with its picturesque narrow alleys and Gothic buildings. We then end our day at Plaza Nueva where I introduce you to the micro cuisine of the pintxos before taking you back to a well earned rest on the cruise ship.

This excursion includes moderate walking with some steps in Haro and around the Guggenheim Museum and within the pedestrianized old town.
