    Benat was a great guide and ambassador for his city. We so enjoyed our tour around downtown and beyond - we saw so much! We really appreciated his enthusiasm and his love of Bilbao. We learned a ton of history and were delighted with the perspective he brought to our tour. We asked a ton of questions and he was so happy to answer all of them - he was very patient.

    Fabulous and Fun!

    We find bike tours the best way to see and understand the city and this one certainly didn’t let us down. Our guide, Benat, was so enthusiastic about his city and we found ourselves mesmorised with the history and the stories of his life there - the 3 hours went far too quickly! Benat also told us which places to visit outside the town which we would never have found ie the beach with the palaces. We love Bilbao too Benat! It was an easy and safe bike ride. Throughly recommend this activity.
