Great intro to Bilbao history

Sam was great. He took time to answer all kinds of questions about history & the present in Basque Country. In addition to the history, he had good recommendations for museums & restaurants. Strongly recommend.

The history of growth of commerce along the river. The age of the city and its importance as early as the middle ages. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. Walk was a comfortable one for older people.

Our tour guide Sam was very knowledgable of the history of Basque Country so we got a lot more than a tour of Bilbao. We also learned so much about the region and its incredible history. These tours are well worth the money especially if you get a tour guide like Sam.

I came during low season and was the only one who signed up to this tour. Thankfully they didn’t cancel the tour. Sam my guide provided insights into the city and it’s history which was very useful to a first time visitor. Sam also continued to give me tips even after the tour has ended. I definitely recommend going on this tour especially if you don’t speak Spanish

Great intro to Bilbao

Sam was amazing. Luckily it was just my husband and I on this tour. We did this tour on the day of our arrival after being awake for almost 26 hours. My husband had to use his cane and Sam took his time and didn’t rush us. He is a very knowledgeable young man and answered all of my husbands questions. It was a great introduction to the beautiful city of Bilbao. 6 ⭐️ out of 5 👍🏻👍🏻

Great introduction to Bilbao and Basque culture.

Sam had fabulous English and was very knowledgeable about Bilbao and Basque history. We were very lucky as tourism had not yet picked up so we had Sam all to ourselves for the tour. He was very easy to talk to and he brought the City to life for us. Very interesting 3 hours with him.

Excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions as I was very curious about the local language and life in Bilbao. As well, he was very informative about architecture, art, traditions, and history. This was exactly the tour I wanted to learn about Bilbao and the Basque region.

We had a great time on the tour and learned a great deal with our guide. He was knowledgeable and versed on the history of the city. My favorite part was his secret spot he took us...ask him to see all the 4 elements of the flag and you won't be disappointed with the photos. Thanks for showing us around!
