Wow! I was plenty amazed by my tour guide Javi. After unsuccessful bookings with WithLocals, I did not expect to be able to be added to a tour. Explora-Norte responded to my late night message and was able to put me on a tour with Javi next morning. Javi is knowledgeable, a real local from Bilbao. He is passionate and enthusiastic about modern art, architecture, and Bilbao. He really allowed me to connect with art in a way I had never before. Thank you Javi!

Excellent guide, knowledge about art, history food, politics, culture, architecture, shopping, and spiced with energy and humor. Takes time to answer any question and takes good care of you to keep you safe and at ease. Highly recommended (and i am picky ;-) )

Our guide, Javier was exceptional! So knowledgeable and passionate about the museum and his work as a tour guide. The museum is an architectural work of art. Superb exhibitions. And 'Puppy' is of course the star! Definitely one of the best art museums!

Roberto our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We had a small group and he took us from one end of the city to the other. It was excellent having e-bikes to get around. He had a lot of knowledge and we took a couple of breaks which was helpful

Our guide was excellent funny full of knowledge also the rest of the staff were friendly and helpful. It was a great tour would book again booked while on cruise ship fir the next day off ship
