Nice in front

Not much can be expected for the very reasonable price. The process with booking, meeting point and ticket worked perfectly. The harbor tour with an English audio guide (one did not work and I understood only 10% of the English information) was a kind of romantic boat trip due to the nice weather and the seat in front of a box.

Beautiful scenic trip around the huge harbour

Great experience , superb translation on the phone device to English, good history and interesting and beautiful . However, the location instructions should have been better with Railway and better sign posts.

The easiest way to get to Getxo beach from Bilbao without driving your car. Outside parking rstres.

It has been a very quiet walk with a very pleasant landscape. Good explanation with audio guide.

Good experience

Good experience and with very punctual schedules but it is short.
