Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Greet your knowledgeable guide outside the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum and begin your tour by admiring the eccentric exterior of the museum; designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, the distinctive structure caused quite a stir among European architects upon completion. Capture photographs beside the 39-foot (12-meter) sculpture of Puppy, a colossal canine made entirely from flowers, and them enter the museum. 

Discuss your personalized itinerary then listen as your qualified, art-expert guide directs your attention to some of the gallery’s most significant masterpieces; see varied examples of art from a collection that spans from the mid-20th century to the present day. Admire the aesthetics of art scattered over three floors and appreciate the artful lighting and creative arrangement of the exhibitions. 

Gain insight into the inspiration behind theatrical installations such as Joseph Beuy’s Lightning with Stag in its Glareb, and peruse pieces from painting pioneers such as Jenny Holzer, Richard Long and Francesco Clemente. Engage with tales of the antics of famous Basque artists and note how the surrounding landscape has inspired some of the pieces. 

After your tour, bid farewell to your guide and continue to explore the museum independently if you desire.

Our tour guide gave us an exceptional personal tour that made great use of our hour and half. He was so well informed and educated on Bilbao and it's history. He had stories about all the artist, architects, finical backers and how they all came together. Simply amazing and so well worth the cost of the personal tour, it enriches the time you have in this unique one of kind Museum. Highly recommended.

Our guide Sebastian was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of all the exhibits and he chose a perfect selection of things to show us. It was so much more enjoyable being able to ask him questions rather than just relying on a prerecorded tape.

We had a short window of time to tour the museum. Maria was the perfect choice. Her breadth and depth of knowledge was appreciated. We learned so much more than had we not hired a Gide. I would highly recommend this service.

We really enjoyed our guide, especially her being able to share her excitement about what we were seeing. She walked us through a lot, choosing examples that illustrated the museum's breadth. A very good museum and the guide from Viator introduced us to the the museum and its architecture.

Excellent! Michel was very knowledgeable and personable at the same time. You can tell he LOVES art. Perfect for us because we are not always modern art lovers. He interpreted pieces thru the eyes of the artists which help us gain a better understanding and appreciation of the art. Perfect amount of time!

I scheduled a private tour of the Guggenheim, was given a last minute time that I could not make and was not allowed to re-schedule. I was charged over $200 and got nothing for it. Go elsewhere.
