Iker took us around the Casco Viejo and the Guggenheim Museum and was truly an excellent guide. His explanations of the history and culture and background of everything was outstanding. Any subject we bought up with him he was able to share the relevant information and add more to it. His guide of the architectural aspects of the museum inside and out were thorough and extremely interesting. He is also very personable and he went out of his way to help us learn more about Bilbao and we would recommend him

If I could give Iker 10 stars I would. I thought my first tour was good but Iker went over and beyond. he accompanied on for the walking tour and in the museum; he was prepared for every contingency. I will definitely use Tours by Locals whenever we travel.

The last three days of our 23 day tour was spent touring the Basque Country with Iker. He was the highlight of our trip! His 9 passenger van was perfect for 6 adults. Professional and knowledgeable as expected he was also very personable, a fun person to be with. Each day was special, tailored to our tastes and preferences. A good balance between culture, arts and shopping. Restaurants were local gems not usually frequented by tourists. We had a great time! Iker is the best guide we have ever had!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks from San Sebastian! Best wishes Iker B.

Iker was an amazing guide! He is bright and personable and gave us a wonderful view of the city, both old and new. Most impressive was his knowledge of the Guggenheim both the architecture and interior galleries and was able to discuss the artists and their works taking us through the areas we were most interested in. Incidently, he saved us approximately 1 hour of waiting inline for museum tickets

Iker was very knowledgable about the museum, both the art and the architecture. His deep understanding of Basque history and culture really made our trip so much more interesting and worthwhile. We would like to return to the area.

Going to Bilbao with Iker was such a joy. Aside from the passion that he has for what he does, his background and love for the arts and food is a powerful combination! What I loved above all was how he took his time, didn't rush our tour at all and was just simply a joy to be with. I highly recommend Iker to anyone who would want to really enjoy Bilbao.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jonathan for your review!! Hope to see you soon back in San Sebastian. Best wishes Iker

Iker was a gracious, accommodating, and highly informative tour guide. He showed us all the highlights of Bilbao and took us to places where the locals, not tourists, enjoy the unique Basque tapas, beer, and wine. Equally important was Iker's extensive knowledge of Bilbao and the Basque region -- its history, culture, gastronomy, economy and politics. We came away from our half-day tour feeling we had not only seen Bilbao, but had learned so much about it.

What to say - The tour was beyond expectations thanks to Iker. He made our day in Bilbao a memorable one, introducing us to his culture,history and area. He was enthusiastic, professional and above all considerate of our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with him and with his approach to sharing his City and his interests. I would recommend his services as a guide without hesitation and would definitely use his services again if ever in that area.
