Our guide (name?) was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We engaged in stimulating conversation about the various pieces of art and the wonderful building. We knew very little about contemporary and pop art but came away with considerable knowledge and appreciation.

Absolutely fabulous, an extraordinary sculpture and museum, which fits wonderfully well into its surroundings. Frank Gehry was able to draw inspiration from Bilbao's past to make this museum an iconic object. The exterior artwork is beautiful.

Gara was an excellent tour guide. She was very engaging and knowledgeable. She also gave us recommendations for other things to do around the city. I would highly recommend.

Excellent private guided tour - we enjoyed it a lot and learned a lot about the museum but also about the city of Bilbao

Javier was terrific, the tour experience was lovely.
