Absolutely fantastic
Dec 2019
We had such a cool day visiting Gaztelugatxe, my daughter loved it as she is a big Games Of Thones fan.Few people visiting Gaztelugatxe so it was memorable. Lunch was very nice, we had different local foods to taste in a local restaurant. It rained a lot in Bilbao but our guide did a good job showing us the most iconic spots in Bilbao.
Thank you we had a lovely day.

Great opportunity to learn about Bilbao
Feb 2020
We visited Bilbao and the Guggenheim with Josu. He was a wonderful guide who was very attentive to our interests. After walking through the old town and learning about its history, he allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted at the museum. We were blown away by the incredible architecture of the Guggenheim, inside and out. Our guide was flexible and knowledgable and it was a pleasure to spend time with this San Sebastian native!

An excellent way to dive into Bilbao and the northern coast. Extremely knowledgeable guide (Begonia) did a very good job of providing local information and ensuring a good pace throughout the day. Great choices for unique pintxos in old town.

Sep 2019
We really enjoyed this trip and would recommend it. Our guide was very well organised, helpful, calm, and a great source of information. She really knows the area and gave us lots of useful advice about what else to see, etc. Everything went very smoothly and we got to see everything that we hoped, and were then delivered back to our hotel. A really great day.

Amazing Experience
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe has to be the highlight of our visit to Spain. Our guide was very friendly and gave a nice history of the Basque country. We loved a small stop we made on the way to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. It was a small town and had a wonderful view of the coast.

Our lunch was nice in Bilboa and the Guggenheim is wonderous creation. Much of the art inside is contemporary and avant guard.

I would highly recommend this tour.

I got in love with San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, this spot is astonishing. Bilbao is really classy and Guggenheim museum deserves a visit.

Lunch was very good too.
