Javier was my guide for the day. He grew up here and shared so much history and knowledge about both Bilbao, the museum history. The exterior and many important pieces in the inside of the museum. Well worth your time to have Javier at your side Vs the audio tour is my perspective. He was absolutely pleasant and I highly recommend him specifically!

I was traveling with my 14 year old son. We really enjoyed the guided tour. Our guide answered our questions about the history of Bilbao, the museum, the Basque culture... I would have stayed 2 more hours because it was very interesting and I would have liked to know more about other works of the museum ! of course we didn't have time to see everything. I will come back with pleasure and my son too.

Kl. 10.15 I get a message from the guide that he is on his way and that he we will be at the designated place, as stated in his booking. He came and was a wonderful guide.
