Cool. We contracted the extended trip and stopped in Getxo. We visit Getxo and its old port, we cross the Vizcaya Bridge, EPIC, and we go to Portugalete. There, we were picked up at 6 pm. Very nice trip and lovely staff. He solved all our doubts. There were also cheap drinks on board. Discover Bilbao and surroundings like this, ESSENTIAL. You spend the whole day. Highly recommended.

Nice staff and attentive to everything. They offered us a drink and a snack. The trip is worth it. The only drawback was that it was a 24-hour ticket, to be able to get on and off whenever you wanted, but in the end we could not, they were all places and full schedules and we had to do the tour in one fell swoop.

The boat trip was wonderful.....but unfortunately we could understand very little of the English information over the loudspeaker which really disappointed us and made the trip less than it would otherwise have been
