This will be accompanied by an audio guide, available in Spanish, English, Basque, and French. This also includes old images of the most iconic points of these towns including the Hanging Bridge of Portugalete, the panoramic view of Getxo, and the marine life in the Port of Santurtzi. You can compare how these places have changed over the decades.  You can stop at any of the ports of these towns to freely explore the historic centers then return to board your boat when it suits you.

Bilbao: Getxo and Vizcaya Bridge Small Group Tour

2. Bilbao: Getxo and Vizcaya Bridge Small Group Tour

Retrace the history of 19th century Bilbao and discover the industrial development that led to the meeting of two very different social classes. The tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Bilbao and heads out towards the mouth of the Ibaizabal estuary. Arrive at the UNESCO listed Vizcaya Bridge, built in the late 1800s to connect the two banks on either side. Learn about the architecture of the bridge, as well as how it brought together local communities and the effects this had on the area’s industrial development. From the bridge, admire views of the steep and narrow streets of Portugalete, a medieval village on the left bank. Next, explore the charming town of Getxo, bursting with character and centuries-old houses. Discover the town’s many districts, and admire epic views of the Punta Galea cliffs. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a better understanding of Bilbao’s history, culture, and socioeconomics.

Nice in front

Not much can be expected for the very reasonable price. The process with booking, meeting point and ticket worked perfectly. The harbor tour with an English audio guide (one did not work and I understood only 10% of the English information) was a kind of romantic boat trip due to the nice weather and the seat in front of a box.

The easiest way to get to Getxo beach from Bilbao without driving your car. Outside parking rstres.

Very punctual and attentive, very good experience and quite interesting guide. The ride is short.

It has been a very quiet walk with a very pleasant landscape. Good explanation with audio guide.

Good experience

Good experience and with very punctual schedules but it is short.
