(*) THE ART OF GUIDING PROFESSIONALISM, EXPERIENCE, EXCELLENCE AND HISTORICAL RIGOR. Bilbao Free Tour Experience is a project that was born as a response to the crisis caused in the tourism sector by the pandemic as a result of the collaboration of several professionals. Their team is not made up of amateurs or students, but rather PROFESSIONAL TOUR GUIDES, the first to bring the free tour model (reverse box office / free donation) to Bilbao, a once-exclusive service. Our work environment covers the entire Autonomous Community of the Basque Country. Diplomas in Tourism and Bachelors in Art History, we are dedicated to disseminating the artistic, cultural and natural heritage of the entire territory and its network of most important public and private museums such as the Guggenheim Museum or the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum. We have extensive experience of 20 years in the field of tourism receiving public from more than 80 countries. We offer tours in Spanish, English, Basque, Italian and German. The last three in payment mode. Our tours are characterized by the depth of their information, they are exhaustive, well documented from a historical and cultural point of view and are aimed at an intellectually demanding public. Through our work we propose a series of initiatives for the care of the city, promoting the interaction of tourists with commerce and local culture.

About the Tour

(*)(**) THE MOST ORIGINAL TOUR OF BILBAO

What do a Cuban clown, a cuplé legend and the second president of the United States of America have in common? The answer is simple, Bilbao.


Those mentioned above are just a few examples of the popular anecdotes of Casco Viejo. Characters and stories that left their mark on our city to whose name they will be forever linked.


Brief description of the tour:

With "Bilbao Para Curios@s " we offer you an original look at Bilbao's Casco Viejo and its surroundings. Without neglecting the historical rigor that characterizes all our tours, we want to tell you a different story about Bilbao.

A tour for you, Bilbao@, Bizkain@, who know the most important details of the history of the town, but you are not satisfied. But also for you, who are not from Bilbao, but want to discover its most picturesque side.

We will demolish myths anchored in the collective memory, we will travel to the Paris of the Belle Epoque, to the golden age of Hollywood, to the happy twenties, we will remember some great transoceanic voyages, we will attend the birth of great nations, we will read fragments of universal literature, etc. ... And all with Bilbao as the common thread.

El tour es muy muy diferente a los tours genéricos de la ciudad que puedas hacer, por ello ojo, si buscas un tour genérico no es tu tour, si por contra eres de Bilbao o quieres conocer algunas curiosidades de Bilbao y personajes históricos.... Es tu tour claramente y no creo que hay más de este estilo.
