1.) The Tourguide Javier was great, very helpful and very nice. 2.) The Meetingpoint was a 50/50 chance to find. I would recommend only to use informations per WhatsApp/phone. We got both emails and WhatsApp’s and since we didn’t notice that they did mention two different meeting points we (family of Four, 10 and 12 year old kids) went to the wrong one and missed the boat. Luckily our tourguide met with us nevertheless and made it possible to reschedule for the next day. 3.) We booked the tour in German as we didn’t want to translate to our kids simultaneously but we got last minute notice that the tours are not available in German during October/November anymore. So I would probably write that on the Homepage as well to avoid disappointment. Our Tourguide Javier included the kids nevertheless and tried in simple English so they wouldn’t feel left out - great job on his side! 5 stars for the Tourguide, 4 stars for the Organisation as it had minor flaws ;-)

Nice view by boat

I understood the history and the scenery by boat was wonderful. If I was looking forward to pintxos and drinks, I was told that I was done. As a result, the guide paid. It was good to show the site and eat at a popular shop, but the price was high, so I was disappointed that the guide did not reach the guide properly.

A fantastic evening, turning an "unknown" in 3 hours into a friend!

The evening started at the right time and after 10 minutes the first Jamon Iberico was being consumed, waht a great way to start. our host Irene was knowledgeable, vibrant and enthusiastic. We ate pinxtos at various places in old and new Bilbao and even our nxt day's dinner as arranged at one of the addresses that we visited. Irene is working hard to open up a small place for guests to stay in the country side and take them in the lovely area in and around Bilbao : well, it is certainly worth coming back for !
