    Had the best experience ever. I’ve been at a lot of the stadiums since I’m a big Chelsea supporter, but only Athletic history made me book a tour even without the game itself. It was absolutely amazing and I can’t thank both of our tour guides enough. They were incredible & it was really interesting talking to someone who’s travelling away as well & knows their club 100%. Unfortunately I didn’t ask their name but the tour was on 26.01.20 and I would recommend this to everyone. My friend she’s not a football fan, but she enjoyed it a lot!

    Good choice of activity for football fans The guide (# 4) was extremely engaged and knowledgeable about football - and spoke good English - he alternated seamlessly between English and Spanish. Although we were only 4 English speakers and the rest Spanish, he gave us just as much time. Fantastic stadium and museum. Looking forward to the match there tonight.

    Good plan! Eye! meeting point NOT WELL INDICATED OR EXPLAINED in the App. I recommend: 1- enter the museum and with your reservation code they give you your tickets 2- go down to the museum and spend some time on what is shown there, 15-20 minutes quietly (You can also return when you finish the guided tour, if you have left something). And wait for the guide when you arrive at the end of the museum 3- at the time of the visit, the guide goes through the museum to congregate in the last room the group of people who will make the visit with him / her. And the visit begins.
