    The visit is worth the detour because there is a superb museum, we visit the stadium from top to bottom in every detail. The price is up to what they show us. In addition we fell the day of a match they were preparing the stadium during the visit it was great. We do not regret at all.

    Had the best experience ever. I’ve been at a lot of the stadiums since I’m a big Chelsea supporter, but only Athletic history made me book a tour even without the game itself. It was absolutely amazing and I can’t thank both of our tour guides enough. They were incredible & it was really interesting talking to someone who’s travelling away as well & knows their club 100%. Unfortunately I didn’t ask their name but the tour was on 26.01.20 and I would recommend this to everyone. My friend she’s not a football fan, but she enjoyed it a lot!

    Good choice of activity for football fans The guide (# 4) was extremely engaged and knowledgeable about football - and spoke good English - he alternated seamlessly between English and Spanish. Although we were only 4 English speakers and the rest Spanish, he gave us just as much time. Fantastic stadium and museum. Looking forward to the match there tonight.
