Very good communication before the meet-up. Our guide Javier, was very welcoming, and clearly knew his stuff ! He was very knowledgeable about the museum, its history and the various sculptures and artists. His enthusiasm was quite infectious and he helped us experience the museum in a much better way than if we’d visited it on our own.

We very much enjoyed the tour. Our guide Javier was very friendly and explained many details inside and outside the building to us. It was definitely worth booking the tour. They were also very flexible and supportive when we had to move the date for a private matter. Recommended tour and plenty of time with the guide!

Die Führung hat uns gut gefallen. Die Führerin ging historisch vor und hat auf die Stadtentwicklung nach dem Niedergang der Schwerindustrie, die Bemühungen zur Ansiedlung des Guggenheim - Museums und die resultierende Eingliederung und Erweiterung der Stadtentwicklung hingewiesen. Danach wurden auch die architektonischen und technischen Besonderheiten des Gebäudes erklärt, bevor es zur Besichtigung der Innenräume ging. Dabei wurden viele Aspekte angesprochen, die wir nicht in Reiseführern oder im Internet gefunden haben, aber erst zum Gesamtverständnis beitrugen. Zusätzlich: Was ist mein Eindruck vom Museum? Das Gebäude des Guggenheim - Museums Bilbao erschien mir persönlich imposanter als die Exponate selbst. Das Guggenheim Museum wird quasi im Franchising vermarktet, für den Namen muß quasi eine Lizenzgebühr bezahlt werden.
