OverviewDiscover the Basque regionthat surrounds Bilbao called Biscay( Bizkaia in Basque language) during a full-day trip from San Sebastian. Fall in love with the charming 10th century hermitage of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and climb its 241 stairs to get to the top and enjoy its magnificent views. Then head to Bilbao (the financial capital of the Basque Country) and get a glimpse of the architectural and traditional beauties of this wonderful city, including Guggenheim Museum (entrance ticket included). All this in one day, and with the convenience of private transportation (pick up and drop off at your hotel) & lunch included in the tour price!
** Due to limited capacity, climbing the 241 stairs to the Gaztelugatxe hermitage is not guaranteed. Instead, you would first visit the town on the Biscayan coast Mundaka, known worldwide for its waves and fishing tradition, and then a stop would be made to enjoy a panoramic view of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe from the viewpoint.

Another trip outside of San Sebastian that was well worth it without the worry of driving ourselves and learning so much. We has a tour guide plus one in training and only one other couple, so it was a great size. All the sights were well worth the time and the guide in training had extra value with his Basque background, learning a lot about the culture and history. We enjoyed the Guggenheim for it's design but not so much for the exhibits (just not our taste). Lunch was great.
Interesting day. Guggenheim museum was pretty good. Enjoyed the walk around old town. I wish that other passengers who are coughing are made to wear a mask though.
Our guide Matteo and Alex were knowledgeable,, friendly and have deep passion for the region. This made the experience very enjoying.
To be honest I felt we paid too much for this trip to Bilbao & Gaztelugatxe It was great that we were picked up at our hotel and driven to this places far away but even though the guide was good, doing the numbers the food was at most 20$ p/p, 30$ for both tickets at the museum and 50$ in fuel plus the guide’s fee we paid $500 !! No way. Next time we’ll rent a car and have an amazing lunch down there.
Our guide was excellent, there just wasn’t much value for the money. No restaurant reservation had us hopping around, etc.
Bilbao was brilliant of course. Must see. But walking around the old town, finding little bars off the main tourist track was extra good fun. Look for where the locals are; ones with blackboard menus down alleys. In my opinion, Tapas is good as a bar snack not as a main meal. Have fun.
Had a great day with our guide Matteo. He was a good, safe driver and very knowledgeable about the areas that we visited. We had a good selection of Pintxos and wine for lunch. Matteo adapted the tour for us as there was only 2 of us and we went to a couple of extra places. I would definitely recommend this tour for people wanting to visit Bilbao and surrounds.
We really enjoyed the entire trip. The view from Gatzelugatxe was beautiful. The tour around Bilbao was interesting and pinxtos were a delicious lunch. Appreciated our guides attention to dietary needs too.
We really enjoyed both parts of the tour. The hike up to Gatzelugatxe was really beautiful at the top. Really enjoyed tour of Bilbao, pinxtos and Guggenheim. Great day of sightseeing!
Excellent tour with Matteo! He was so nice and a great tour guide. He really knew his way around and provided us with lots of information for each area that we went. It was really nice to have such a small tour group and we met some amazing people. Couldn’t recommend this enough!
