Really good value for a lovely tour of the city. Some of the audio was a little tedious but does tell you some interesting facts. A great way to view the city from the river, and the boat doesn't wobble much at all so not a problem if you get sea sick.

Very nice boat ride. He showed me the city from another perspective. The guy who was the guide was very kind. Nice group. I was a bit cold, it is advisable to bring a jacket. Beautiful city Bilbao, a lot to see. Some things we saw were not explained, I think, more information could have been given. Either way, I recommend it to the ride.

Nice entertainment in the city of Bilbao, and very interesting to get a piece of the city's history in this way. It is a pity that the tour is only one way, to the working docks that are no longer in use. Would have been great if we had also visited the other part of the river. Explanation in English via your phone is practical. Don't forget to bring headphones or earphones.
