GO BASQUE is a boutique travel agency based in San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain that specializes in designing private and bespoke tours throughout the Basque Country and Rioja wine region.
If you want to visit Bilbao from San Sebastian in one day, our Private Bilbao City Tour is the best way to do it!
We will begin the day by driving west from San Sebastian to discover Bilbao, a city of contrasts that stands today somewhere between tradition and modernity. On this Bilbao City Tour, you will have the opportunity to witness Bilbao’s urban regeneration that has transformed it into a cosmopolitan city.
There is no better place to start the Bilbao City Tour than at the Guggenheim Museum. With the welcome of “Puppy”, a West Highland White Terrier designed by Jeff Koons that stands 12.4 metres tall, we will get insights about the Guggenheim Museum and learn about its impact on the city, known as the “Guggenheim Effect”.
After a short self-guided visit inside the Museum, you will have time to take as many pictures as you want with “Mamma”, Louise Bourgeois’ gigantic spider. We will continue our tour on foot following the path of the Nervion River, stopping to admire the Isozaki Towers and crossing the river using the controversial Zubi Zuri Bridge.
As we get closer to Bilbao’s Old Town, we will have the opportunity to learn about the origins, history, and traditions of the city, while stopping to visit the most important sights and highlights of Bilbao’s Historic District.
