What people are saying about Bilbao

We enjoyed the tour very much! Since it was rainy, we did the first part of the tour, where it was steeper uphill and downhill, on foot. We were in Bilbao Viejo, which has a lot of art, street art and studios. Then we cycled to the new island, where the upheaval is only now taking place, heavy industry is disappearing and new things are emerging. There we stopped in a really cool shop for a beer and then cycled back. Our guide was great, he witnessed the upheaval in the city from the very beginning, how the artists changed the city, he talked a lot about the sewing box, it was very interesting.

A great tour, with a very good relaxing local guide, who has a lot of knowledge and big heart for Bilbao’s underground/art/culture scene, and he also speaks English very well. Next to this, he knows the history of Bilbao very well. During the trip, we thanks to the guide got a very interesting insider look into Bilbao’s underground, art & graffiti scene, which gave us a very good understanding of the vibe of the city and we also saw a lot of great street art. A great experience with a great guide, if you want to see Bilbao from another side than only the standard tourists attractions.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Bilbao, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in art, culture, history and people. Our guide Txema was extremely knowledgeable and his enthusiasm for the art scene in Bilbao was addictive! We saw areas of the city we would probably not have gone to on our own and learnt a lot more about the post-industrial history of the city than through any guide book. Inspirational!

A really nice way to see the city, and our guide was very informative. We highly recomend everybody to try this.

Highly recommend, you get to know Bilbao in a different way - thanks to the great guide!
