This is a great way to explore Bilbao. It gives you a lot of information and history from which to start planning and exploring the different parts of the city. A very relaxed way to start your journey. Full of facts, and the audio tracks kept us right up to speed! Some human delivery from locals, rather than everything coming from the App, would definitely give this trip an upgrade.

Nice crossing on the Nerbion. The Guggenheim Museum, the bridges and the Ayuntamiento de Bilbao are impressive seen from the boat. Plan a gale, because it is still cold. My crossing was that of 8:30 p.m., the last. Otherwise, you can be on the lower, inner floor. But it's better upstairs

Really good value for a lovely tour of the city. Some of the audio was a little tedious but does tell you some interesting facts. A great way to view the city from the river, and the boat doesn't wobble much at all so not a problem if you get sea sick.
