Bilbao ESSENTIAL - Free Tour
Aupa! (Hi in the local language) My name is Aitor, but since it is such a common name in the Basque Country (more than 50k men are called Aitor), people call me AitorPi (adding two letters from my family name). I've felt the wanderlust all my life and visited over 20 countries. I love to be shown around the places I go to and that's why I'd love to show my city to you, now that I've settled down a little. Come and see the beauties of Bilbao with me!
