Full description
In a 3-hour guided tour, discover medieval Bilbao’s charming streets and squares along with the intense commercial and port activity that made this city into what it is today. Start by meeting your guide and delving into the city’s ancient past: see the city’s outer walls, the Gothic Cathedral of Santiago, the Plaza Nueva, and the emblematic Church of San Antón, totaling more than 500 years of history that seems to transcend time.   Then, continue your tour to the well-known Ensanche, a key sign of the progress of this city. See the urban development of Bilbao and its architectural wonders from the 19th through to the 21st century. It will be here that you’ll witness the pulsating heart of a city that exudes both tradition and avant-garde style.   Your visit ends with the opportunity to sample one of the most iconic Bilbao foods: pintxos. These are small snacks skewered with a toothpick, usually eaten socially in bars, which makes them the perfect way to end this small group tour with your new friends.

I met Javier at the assigned location in Bilbao… and soon discovered that I was the only person to sign up for the tour; thus, he became my personal guide. I found him quite knowledgeable and and very accommodating to my needs. It’s evident that Javier loves the city he serves and went out of his way to pass that along to me! I appreciate that immensely.

Good introductory visit for a newcomer, helps you get situated during your stay. Useful and entertaining information, sometimes technical. The guide, a young art graduate, was very friendly and approachable. A piece of advice, remove the skewers, it leads to misunderstanding.
