The most Cosmopolitan city of all Basque Land with a private guide


During your private tour to Bilbao I'll pick you up in the port. Driving to the city, you'll see a technological wonder, the unique suspension bridge. It is under UNESCO protection from 2006.
The city of Bilbao has an intense history: born as a merchant village, it grew up to be an industrial super city. Although that didn't last forever, and now Bilbao is a new place: a dynamic business city with a lot of life!
The streets of this amazing city tell their story: how the District of the 7 Streets struggled through the centuries and became what it is today. The history lives in stone: ultra-modern buildings like Guggenheim Museum and Isozaki Towers are good neighbours of XVIII -XIXth century houses.
Bilbao reflects vividly in the character of its inhabitants: arrogant and extremely proud of their place. All the jokes about the supremacy of Bilbao's people over everybody else have some point of truth…
The duration of your visit will be adjusted to your availability.
