Great introduction to Bilbao and Basque culture.
, Jul 2021
Sam had fabulous English and was very knowledgeable about Bilbao and Basque history. We were very lucky as tourism had not yet picked up so we had Sam all to ourselves for the tour. He was very easy to talk to and he brought the City to life for us. Very interesting 3 hours with him.

Excellent Tour
, Oct 2020
Excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions as I was very curious about the local language and life in Bilbao. As well, he was very informative about architecture, art, traditions, and history. This was exactly the tour I wanted to learn about Bilbao and the Basque region.
Great tour!

We had a great time on the tour and learned a great deal with our guide. He was knowledgeable and versed on the history of the city. My favorite part was his secret spot he took us...ask him to see all the 4 elements of the flag and you won't be disappointed with the photos. Thanks for showing us around!
Historical walking tour

The guide was informative, friendly and amusing. He spent far more than the allotted 2 hours. I would encourage first time visitors to use this service as he introduced us to the highlights of the old town, including cathedral and pintxos areas.
Excellent Introduction to Old Bilbao
, Jan 2020
I was fortunate to be the only tour participant. I found the tour informative in getting my bearings in Old Bilbao after just having arrived, and in hearing about the Basque culture and history of the City. My guide was well informed and very pleasant to interact with.
Fabulous with some extra places added to my tour ;-)

This was a brilliant tour and as I was alone my guide added some extra places to visit that interested me. Was really good tour and a charming guide.
