What is a Free Tour?

It is about a walking visit with an official tour guide for free. Once the tour is finished, you can put a price according to your level of satisfaction.


If you are visiting the Basque Country and you fancy wandering through its streets, we welcome you to join us on our Free Tour Bilbao Imprescindible. A unique chance to explore the city as a local!

Our historic tour through the city starts at one of Bilbao´s most emblematic buildings. Standing at the entrance of Plaza Arriaga you will contemplate the Arraiga Theatre, with a bourgeois feel about it and modelled on the Paris Opera House. Our next stop is Plaza Nueva, a unique town square and a site worth viewing for its beauty evoking old Europe and featuring a neoclassical design. 

The heart of Bilbao which resurfaced after the catastrophic floodings has been restored making it nowadays a renowned shopping area. Its vibrant streets are lined with places to enjoy a rest like the square Plaza Unamuno which commemorates the life of the philosopher and writer. A great way to learn about the many stories surrounding the city´s old historic quarter. 

The best way to get to know Bilbao´s daily way of life is by paying a visit to the heart of its shopping district. The market place, Mercado de la Ribera is a major attraction for visitors because of its incredible building and lively atmosphere.  

Our Spanish speaking guide will take you to some of the most interesting places in Bilbao and reveal the history behind this fascinating city as well as its most well known characters, traditions and much more.
