TOUR OF THE OLD TOWN AND HISTORICAL BILBAO SURROUNDINGS. FROM ITS ORIGINS TO THE MODERN AGE.
Brief description of the tour:
For more than 500 years, Bilbao was limited to the area that today we call Casco Viejo - Zazpikaleak (7 streets). It is fundamentally in that reduced space on the right bank of the estuary where the town thrives until the definitive leap to the left bank in the second half of the 19th century.
We will tell you its history, its urban development, we will interpret its architecture for you and we will get closer to the life of some of the historical figures that inhabited its streets.
A 2-hour tour, without haste, without point-to-point races, so that you can enjoy the stories we tell you, but also the walk through the historic center.
San Nicolás (Arenal)
Bridge and Church of San Antón
La Ribera walkway
Yohn Palace Cathedral (Calle Santa María)
Fountain and Dog Street
Arriaga (Arenal Square)
PRACTICAL INFORMATION -Groups of max. 10 pax. (9 pax + guide)
-We do not use amplifiers. We have nothing against it, we know its usefulness, but the Old Quarter of Bilbao is not only a commercial and tourist area, it is also a residential area. So we do not contribute to noise pollution and we respect the rest of the neighbors.
-If you have a reusable bottle, we recommend that you take it with you. This way you will avoid the generation of waste from plastic bottles. In Bilbao there are more than 300 public fountains with high quality drinking water that deserves to be appreciated.
MEASURES FOR COVID-19 Important information. We are taking safety and hygiene measures recommended by the health authorities in all the Guruwalks:
- Limited number of visitors
- Safety distance between visitors

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps
How to find me: Next to the entrance of the Church of San Nicolás (Arenal) you will see the blue umbrella

It was really interesting! I was the only one in the tour, and Unai really explained through about the history and the stories about the place. I also appreciate all the pixcho bar recommendations :)
El amigo unai estuvo más de dos horas y fue superdetallista con todos los conceptos que nos estaba explicando. A pesar del frío se hizo muy ameno!
El tour fue estupendo. Sirve para entender el origen de la ciudad y su historia. Las explicaciones fueron muy claras y fáciles de seguir
Fue estupendo. Tanto el tour y lo que te enseñan (lugares emblemáticos de Bilbao, edificios históricos y curiosidades arquitectónicas), como las explicaciones tan detalladas e interesantes. 100% recomendable. Unai fue majísimo y muy profesional.
