Getxo and Bizkaia bridge small group tour

During the 19th century the region of Bilbao experiences a huge industralisation development that led to two very different social classes: working class and bankers. Each one laid on river Ibaizabal's West and East banks, and both areas developed their own way. This tour will take you to learn about the Bizkaia bridge, built in late 19th century as a representation of the iron industry in the area, and the link of both river banks. On the left side there lies the medieval village of Portugalete, with steep and narrow streets and Camino de Santiago routes. On the right side, you will discover Getxo, with all her different areas: from majestic Las Arenas and exclusive palaces of Neguri to the charming centuries-old houses of the Old Port in Algorta and the astonishing views from the cliffs of Punta Galea. The estuary of river Ibaizabal, coming from Bilbao, has many secrets ready to be discovered. Do not miss this chance of seeing all of them!

star-5
The estuary of river Urdaibai has many attractions that can be enjoyed in a short trip from Bilbao. The hermitage of Gaztelugatxe (set as Dragonstone in the Game of Thrones series) is a good start to enjoy the sea views in contrast to the mountain. Then, the coastal town of Bermeo allows you to see firsthand how the old fishing traditions are maintained in the present. Finally, from Bermeo you reach Gernika, where rural and agricultural traditions are mixed with their varied history. Gernika is the reference town in Basque history, since here is the ancient tree where the medieval kings of Spain swore to respect local laws. It is also where the German bombing took place during the Spanish Civil War that destroyed much of it. Take this opportunity to combine the beautiful landscapes with the history of the Basque Country!

Bilbao to San Sebastian: Basque Country Private Sightseeing TourDay Trips

Bilbao to San Sebastian: Basque Country Private Sightseeing Tour

The greatest advantage to my tours: flexibility. I may propose or start the day with an itinerary in mind, but the tour will evolve according to your wishes. My greatest asset: I have one foot firmly set in 2 countries/cultures: I speak perfect American English, as I was born and raised in the US, yet my father is French, and my wife (and in-laws) are all French. Having a unique point of view due to my international education and experiences, and a profound understanding of both French and American cultures, I appreciate and respect what English-speaking tourists are looking for in France - and can share this with you! With over 28 years' experience driving in France, I provide safe transport, historical commentary & personal anecdotes about life in France as an American expatriate. My objective: to help you maximize your time spent here in France - so that you comfortably enjoy all the beauty and history & return home filled with spectacular memories of a marvelous adventure.

star-5
A fabulous combination of adventure and refinement. Gourmet food in the best restaurants, 5 star hotels and a professionally made photographic report of the tour, all included. Spend three days touring Asturias and Cantabria with this luxury and completely customizable tour. Sr. Buelga is a knowledgeable guide with a bachelor in geology and lots of experience touring north Spain. Vehicle: 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser. This is a private tour for a maximum of three people. While I am focused in tourism & geology some people consider I am a true foodie so I am always looking for the most authentic and tasty local food. The Green Coast offers some of Europe's top scenery and if you know their best restaurants it still offers incredible food using only local produce and suberb preparation. The best seafood of Spain come from this area, top quality aged beef meat, traditional stews, cheeses, etc. This is a three day tour but it is more than enough for an unforgettable visit to north Spain.
