Best of Bilbao

Bilbao, one hour to the west of San Sebastián, is often summarized in one word: Guggenheim. In this tour, you will, of course, enjoy the art on offer at the famous Frank Gehry-designed museum with a guided visit. However, we have created a day-long experience to ensure that you get the best of Bilbao and don't miss a thing.

Hop in private luxury transport and start the day with one of our guides. They will take you on a stroll of Bilbao, once an industrial hole, but now a cleaned-up and multi-faceted cosmopolitan city. Bilbao has experienced a fascinating transformation, with architecture and art as the factors of change. Learn about its transformation from your private guide, and ask all the questions your guide books don't answer as you pass by the city's best sights. Stop for a pintxo lunch at some of the our favorite pintxo bars and learn more about the culinary culture of this city.
