What people are saying about Bilbao

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 ;-)

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 !

Must do activity! Perfect opportunity to take photos and videos of the Guggenheim. Very comfortable, friendly staff, and great onboard music.

The truth is that it has been an unforgettable experience, the fantastic boat ride very well explained by our guide Javier,

I find it a very pleasant journey and a completely different perspective of the city. Highly recommended.
