Punto de encuentro


On our first day in Bilbao, we booked an English speaking walking tour of Bilbao. We were welcomed to join and our guide, who spent the next 2 hours introducing us to some history, interesting stories and fun facts about Bilbao. Entertaining and informative, I recommend Leaf Tours Bilbao to anyone visiting Bilbao.
Warm welcome to Bilbao

This tour was really great and the tour guides all seem to be young, energetic, and filled with interesting knowledge about the city. Our guide was all of the above! We had a small group from US and UK so Xabi did our tour in English. I really enjoyed the afternoon of sightseeing and fun facts and highly recommend this tour while in Bilbao!
Great overview of important sights in an entertaining way!
