Overall rating

Excellent tour with an excellent guide, Diego. Full of interesting information about Bilbao, Algorta, Arenas, Portugalete etc (Basque history, culture, sport etc). A short cycle before a lovely walk around Puerto Viejo, with a stop for a pinto, then a breathtaking cycle along the cliffs before returning to Algorta. A fun tour in a beautiful place.

A very varied trip that shows the different developments in the industry. Some of the old port facilities are still in a state of disrepair. Definitely worth it. There is also the option of getting off halfway and taking the subway home, perhaps having a lunchtime snack there?

A simple but beautiful river trip, for those who have enough time for Bilbao and have already seen a lot there, just do it, we found it highly recommendable.

Everything was great! Nice tour (mostly!) and interesting!

Very good idea to do this 2 and a half hour cruise.
