Tour description

Hello everyone,

We want to inform you that this year the Aste Nagusia / Semana Grande de Bilbao will be held from August 19 to 27.

Therefore, during those dates,

IMPORTANT!

THE MEETING POINT WILL BE IN FRONT OF THE TOWN HALL, NEXT TO THE OTEIZA SCULPTURE AND TOWN HALL BRIDGE (WHITE UMBRELLA)

(We only transfer you a 5-minute walk from the original meeting point, to the next bridge, since the festival grounds and activities will make meetings very complicated)

ON THOSE DAYS ALL THE FREE TOURS THAT WE OFFER WILL BE UNIQUE AND SPECIAL EDITION, WILL UNIFY THE THEME OF THE HISTORICAL FREE TOUR AND MODERN FREE TOUR IN 120-140 MINUTES. WE KEEP THE SAME SCHEDULES.

GIVEN THE DATES AND FESTIVE ACTIVITIES WE WILL TOUR MAINLY THROUGH THE AREAS OF THE MODERN HISTORY TOUR.

(Town Hall, Ensanche, Ría, Uribitarte, Guggenheim...)

WE CONFIRM ALL RESERVATIONS RECEIVED FOR THOSE DATES AND WE PUT OUR WHATSAPP AT YOUR DISPOSAL FOR ANY QUESTIONS AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR CONFIRMATION THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE NOTIFICATION.

+34 623193433

We want you to take into consideration that the entire city will be especially transformed during the festive week and therefore we have to take exceptional measures for guided tours.

We are convinced that you are going to love it and that you have chosen the best way to get to know Bilbao!

Greetings and see you soon in Bilbao!

The Basque free tour Bilbao team



From its charming medieval town we will explore the origins of this ancient mercantile town.

More than seven centuries of conflicts, characters and events brought together in an entertaining journey that will follow the impressive history of the expansion of the classical and industrial city of the 19th century until the award-winning transformation of Bilbao, ending at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

Faced with the vicissitudes of history, we will discover a city that has turned its face to its river with a recognized urbanism pushed by architectural milestones.

An essential visit to learn about the history of Bilbao and the traditions of Basque culture.

Professional local guides are waiting for you!

Basque Free Tours are an excellent way to see and learn about Bilbao. Our guide Stephane was very knowledgeable about his city and a great storyteller.

Se notaba que nuestro guía tenía mogollón de experiencia y comunicaba súper bien la información. Nos hubiese gustado más ir por el centro de Bilbao, pero dado en las fechas que estábamos era difícil. Aún así, muy bien elegido el recorrido para hacerte una idea de la ciudad. Siempre es un acierto cogerse un tour free. Gracias.

El tour fue muy completo. El guia, Ander, nos explicó la historia de Bilbao con muchos detalles y con alguna historieta divertida. Fue un tour muy entretenido. Gracias Ander.

El guía Iñaki fue un gran profesional haciendo el tour muy ameno y divertido. Lo recomiendo 100%. Una pena que por el motivo de las fiestas locales el recorrido por el casco viejo estuviese modificado, pero por lo demás totalmente recomendable.
