With a Greek passport but with a Basque Heart, I fell in love with Bilbao when I came to visit the Guggenheim Museum, and discovered the city of my dreams. Via Free Tours, I found the best way to both meet new people and show them around what I love about Bilbao, the Basque culture and life. Join me to an alternative tour and you'll probably discover the beauty of a fascinating city, the Bilbao Effect.

About the Tour

Bilbao La Vieja (The old Bilbao) has coexisted with the Old City since its beginning, because of its location right on the other side of the river estuary. Bilbao la Vieja became the centre of the industrial activity in the late 19th and for the whole 20th century, because it was there where the mines of steel and iron were.
Today, it´s the alternative, multi - coloured, multi ethnic and most interesting neighbourhood of the city.
Art Centres and Galleries,
creativity - focused businesses, ethnic restaurants and bars, the whole gay night life, all these together form the most inter- racial district of the city. It is a warm and authentic district, gathering as no other the mixture of people and arts, natives and emigrants, artists from all over Europe along with the local proud Basque people, the gay community and all these people are happy and proud to live in Bilbao la Vieja. 
Join me in a very interesting, most alternative and less touristic tour, in which we'll discover the real life of Bilbao. 
Needless to say that during all this walk, we'll be able to enjoy some of the most beautiful parts of street art of Bilbao.
All my groups of guests are strictly limited to 9-10 person for a more personal and private tour and because of the Covid 19 measures. For that reason, please be punctual at the time and the place of our meeting, because of the limited bookings of every tour.

How to find me: Right outside of the Rivera Market, outside of the entrance with the escalators, holding a rainbow umbrella.

This is one of the best walking tours I have ever had the pleasure of joining! The tour was fun and informative, and I got to see and learn about parts of the city I never would have discovered on my one. Susana was a marvellous host - she was friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, and so eager to show off a city she loves. Highly recommend!

Response from ABasqueHeart
My dear beautiful girls, I thank you both so much for coming to my tour. The pleasure was all mine, and I really hope to see you again, in your next trip to Bilbao. I wish you all the best, love. Susana.
