Guggenheim and Bilbao

Ana provided us with a wonderful tour of Bilbao. She was able to comprehensively explain the exhibits at the Guggenheim, which we so enjoyed. She tailored the overview of the city to our family, and the funicular trip to see Bilbao from above was a highlight. We would highly recommend this tour and Ana as a guide!

Genial y súper personalizado. Teníamos pendiente hacer tour dentro del museo y fue increible. Compaginamos con la visita por el Casco viejo y la verdad que nuestra guía Ana nos explico de una manera muy didáctica y divertida la historia de Bilbao. Terminamos tomando unos pintxos por la Plaza Nueva. Recomendable 100%
