THE ART OF GUIDING. Bilbao Free Tour Experience is the result of a collaboration between a team of professional tour guides whose area of competence is not limited only to Bilbao but to the entire Euskadi-Basque Country. Upon graduation in Tourism, Art History and other higher university degrees, since 2002 we are dedicated to the outreach and dissemination of the artistic, cultural and natural heritage of the entire Basque autonomous community, as well as of its most important private and public museums. Our team has an extensive experience in the field of tourism, we have received tourists and travelers from more than 80 countries with tours available in 5 languages. We believe that a renewed tourism is possible and this is why we propose a range of initiatives in order to take care of the city and the environment. We also encourage the interaction between commerce and local culture with a more sustainable and environmentally friendly tourism. We are happy to guide you, to provide some advice and share with you our experience and knowledge. We want to bring you closer to our city and help you get to know and explore the most interesting places of Bilbao so that you discover the rich heritage and history its streets boast of.

About the Tour

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.


The above mentioned are just some examples of the popular anecdote 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 in the Old Town and its surroundings. Without neglecting the historical rigor that characterizes all of our tours, we want to tell you a different history of Bilbao, the one that characters, shops, cafes, etc., left engraved in its streets ... whose uniqueness deserves its own journey in which to deepen and that, Due to lack of time, it is not possible to attend our "Historic Bilbao Free Tour: From the 7 Streets to the Ensanche" , the best tour to understand the Bilbao of five centuries.

A tour for you, Bilbao @, Bizkain @, who know the most important details of the history of the town and its urban evolution, but you are not satisfied. But also for you, who are not from Bilbao, but want to know 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 20s, we will remember some great transoceanic voyages, we will witness the birth of great nations, we will read fragments of universal literature, etc. ... And all with Bilbao as the common thread.

Practical information
-Small groups
-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. Thus 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 valued.

-
Measures by the Covid-19. Important information. We are taking safety and hygiene measures recommended by the health authorities in all the Guruwalks:
