Local guide of Bilbao and the whole Basque Country, eager to share all my knowledges about my city, its history and all the fascinating features of the mysterious basque people, culture and language. I am vastly passionate, a lover of good vibrations, genuine and authentic moments, things and people. Fulfilling the expectations of visitors coming to my country is what makes me the happiest. Let me show you my city and my country from a completely different and personalised perspective.

About the tour

In this 2 hour-tour you will be able to visit the city from its origin from its foundation in 1300 up to the XIX. century knowing about the different historical events and main special and symbolic corners and buildings of the city.

Starting from the oldest point of the Old Town we will begin our itinerary in a strictly chronological way and order crossing the San Anton church nd one of the 3 main original churches of the Old Town, explaining the place where the ancient square was, and the matrix of the medieval Bilbao.

I will show you some of the most iconic buildings of this area as the market or some of most ancient ones that are still standing. We will stroll through the 7 medieval streets with their characteristic traditional shops and bars up to the little square of the Santiago Cathedral.

Afterwards, we will leave behind the former walled part of the city to discover the other corners and squares of the rest of the Old Town, visiting the Unamuno and New squares, and after this the main park where I will explain you some of the most important buildings around that ancient beach by the tidal river.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Desafortunadamente no pudimos encontrarnos con Danny, estuve hablando con el durante el día para quedar en el lugar y hora que había especificado, le comenté pocas horas antes en el día fijado que nos veríamos seguro a la hora que indicó pero al final no apareció, Le estuvimos escribiendo y respondió bastante tarde que se había liado con las fechas ya que teníamos otro tour también al día siguiente con él, en fin, no pudimos hacer el tour y nos quedamos esperando en el sitio hasta que nos respondió que ya no podría porque se había comprometido para otras cosas.

Seguro que su tour es muy guay pero para nosotros la experiencia no fue buena, una tristeza porque al final no pudimos hacer ningún tour. :(

Response from Danny:

Me pedisteis el tour para el domingo 11 ( 1 único tour porque solo ofrezco uno, no seas mentirosa) y el sabado 10 me contactaste para confirmar la hora cuando dijiste que me contactarías antes por lo que la que escribió a última hora fuiste TU, y si hago más cosas en la vida para ganarme la vida y el sabado puesto que tu tour era el domingo estaa haciendo otras cosas. En el mensaje solo me dijiste si lo podía hacer a las 18h y no especificaste en ningún momento HOY sábado 10. Puesto q no soy adivino, y tampoco me diste tu whatsapp para comunicarnos más fluidamente, no me quedo claro a que día te referías principalmente. Cuando confirmamos la hora te escribí para que me confirmaras que era para el domingo para no ir en vano hasta allá ya que no estoy aquí disponible 24h, ni para perder dinero. Me respondiste a las 18h que ya estabais ahí. Así que no seas tan mezquina. No tengo la capacidad de teletransportarme y tampoco puedo comunicarme por telepatía. Para la próxima vez deja whatsapp y aclárate y expresa clara y concisamente lo que quieres que los demás no tenemos la capacidad de leer tu mente...

This was a really interesting tour of the old town of Bilbao. Danny was a wonderful host, who shared the history of the city and the region in an engaging way.
