Borja is a very friendly and sweet person who is very knowledgeable about the sites as well as the history and the culture of the area. He drove expertly and knows the area inside and out. It was very comfortable to sit in his clean air conditioned car and enjoy the tour. He took us to some of the best hidden local spots for great views and sights. He was very flexible so that we were able to customize the tour to our interests, which was fabulous. The tour showed us some memorable sights and gave us an opportunity to see beautiful vistas as well as learn about historical and cultural aspects of the area. Time very well spent! Highly recommend the tour! Not to be missed!

Best things to do and see in Bilbao
Bilbao is one of the principal port cities on the Northern Coast of Spain. This capital city of the Biscay Province in Basque Country is surrounded by mountains and the Nervion River runs through the city creating some beautiful scenery. It attracts a large number of tourists each year, and not just because of the Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry, but because its cuisine and its urban architecture make the perfect combination for some great holidays.
If you’re asking, what is there for me to visit in Bilbao? There are many must-see spots and emblematic monuments in this city that you can’t miss.
