Full description
Over 500 years of history will be explored on this walking tour. From the Cathedral of Santiago, Plaza Nueva, the Church of St. Anton and the ruins on which it stands, to the Mercado de la Ribera. This is where the town was born, this is where the port was, and from where the city opened to the world - serving as a bridge between northern Europe and the Hispanic kingdoms. You'll be guided by your professional tour guide in a small group. Learn the history that took place in the streets that Miguel de Unamuno once walked through. Your guide will also take you on a traditional “txikiteo” or “poteo” (bar crawl) to the area's most iconic bars.
  • Entry to the Palace of Liberties, Yhon Palace, and a traditional market
  • Pintxo-pote (Tapa and drink)
  • Transportation to/from attractions

Our guide, Sonia, was incredibly knowledgeable about the City of Bilbao. She is also very attentive and personable. One of the best tours my family has taken.

We found the guide easily, I recommend the tour of the old part of the city to understand how Bilbao started

We were alone as a couple with the guide, so very cozy and interesting. The guide was also very attentive and helpful when I lost my wallet. Javier is truly a fantastic man and very committed to his audience. Great experience, thank you very much!!!
