Bilbao City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Bilbao City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

The precise origins of Bilbao have not been determined. However, a settlement had already been established and had significantly developed on both banks of the "ria del Nervion" before it officially became a villa. It was Don Diego Lopez de Haro V, lord of Vizcaya, who gave the city his title in the year 1300, due to its great importance as a commercial and maritime center at the time.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Bilbao was the great economic icon of the Basque Country and amongst the most important cities in the State. The city is now undergoing a new physical transformation, becoming more and more appealing to visitors.

You will be able to travel to The Guggenheim Museum, the Euskalduna Palace, a conference and music center, the plaza Ensanche, the Jardines de albia and San Vicente Church, the Abando area and the commercial center Zubiarte, the Gran Via, the Corte Ingles, the church of the Sagrado Corazon, The Arriquibar square, the Casa Alhondiga, Indautxu aera, the Bizkaia square, the commercial area, the Moyua square, the Bellas artes museum, the Dona Casilda Park, the Sagrado Corazon square, the University of Deusto and all the main buildings that represent the transformed image of this city.

Always book this bus when we tour a new city. A great overview of what to look for.Beautiful city and enjoyed the commentary. The down time in mid afternoon is always difficult for North Americans.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2011

An excellent tour round a lovely city. The bus driver was most helpful. Fortunately one of the bus stops was close to our hotel so we were able to use it as our form of transport across the city. Highly recommended!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

We toured the Guggenheim Museum in the morning; hence, we only had the afternoon to take the hop on hop off bus. That was a big mistake. We wish we had spent more time with the bus route. It was very informational and convenient, and there were nice views from the bus. We will definitely do this again if we ever go back to Bilbao!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

Excellent expierence and well organized despite the fact that part of the tour was changed due to the fiesta in the city

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Well done and comprehensive. More frequent service more buses would be a plus.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

Good route and lovely driver. Only complaint is the regularity of the bus and no signs for the pickup points.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

The first tour started later in the morning which we didn't expect. This gave us less time to visit the places we wished to see.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

A reasonably good tour for the price 12 to 14 e. Bus runs a 1 hour circuit and has a good bilingual commentary. Not really HOHO because of the 1 hour wait between buses. should add buses to cut interval to 30 or 40 minutes.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

Good overview of the city.
