Hello everyone! I'm Susanne from Athens, and I came to Bilbao in 2018 to visit the GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM and was captured by the hidden beauty of this fantastic Basque city. My love for the whole Basque Country is such that I became an Official Tour Guide to be able to offer tours to anyone would be interested to discover what I have discovered and enjoy Bilbao in its best. I 've joined the GuruWalk community since the summer of 2020 and so far, I had the chance to meet up hundreds of fascinating people, and that's the best thing about this job. Here, in Bilbao, we believe that "The Bilbainos born wherever they want" meaning that one does not has to get born here to be Basque and that's my case! Join my tour to discover the best parts of Bilbao and get to know a lot of stories about this very special nation, the Basques!

Susanne was a very lovely and enthousiastic woman. She has a good energy and radiates her passion for the city, it’s history and also the community. I have really enjoyed my time with her. She even adjusted the route to our needs and brought us to a very special place I would have never came as a tourist.

Susanne was terrific. There were only 2 of us booked and she kindly showed us all, and more, than we expected and patiently answered all our questions. Highly impressed. Thank you Susanne
