Had a nice tour. Discovering a city by bike remains a lot of fun and so is Bilbao. Seen many highlights of the city and heard stories from the Basque / Spanish guide (who spoke very good English), who we would never have heard without this tour. Cycling is good too good, but only small hamlets on the rest is flat and a lot already along the river

Benat was a great guide and ambassador for his city. We so enjoyed our tour around downtown and beyond - we saw so much! We really appreciated his enthusiasm and his love of Bilbao. We learned a ton of history and were delighted with the perspective he brought to our tour. We asked a ton of questions and he was so happy to answer all of them - he was very patient.
