We had a wonderful time in Bilbao. The hotel was located close to the railway station and the metro and also to the Guggenheim. So most of the interesting spots were around us. Dont miss the Guggenheim. It is a great place and a must.
We also take a tour to San Sebastian, using the Bus from the Bus terminal.
In both cities we take the Hop on Hop off Bus to get an overview first and than walk around.
We take the Mercury Hotel for 7 days, nice and friendly staff
At the arrival we take a taxi to the hotel. When we go back, we take the airport shuttle bus, for just 1,45 each. Very cheap.
Bilbao Hop-On Hop-Off was excellent and traversed much of the city and sights. Tour audio/commentary was very good and clear. Really enjoyed this hour-long tour. Only drawback was that the tour runs only once an hour--with only one bus in the system, so we did not get off and instead rode through the route and got off where we started at the Guggenheim.
As always an excellent way to see a city. You see more from the top deck and get all the information about the city so you can then decide which sights you want to go back to. We did 2 full circuits so used it as a way to get around as well. The lady driver was very steady and made the trip a pleasant experience.
Nice and comfortable way to see the sights of Bilbao and decide on which sights to visit. Friendly staff - really enjoyed it.
I enjoyed the tour bus. I thought it was very educational and it told me a lot of really cool places to visit. I basically sat on the bus for the entire loop around the city to get background info and then I used it for one of the stops. These buses are great for getting to know the 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.
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!

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!
The full circle of the tour takes about an hour. The information on the tour is good - it's recorded rather than a live guide and is in English, Spanish and French. It would be better if the bus waited at the stops until the advertised time - we missed it by seconds after running for it to return to the start, certain the driver would have seen us but still drove off.

Just a single bus operates this service, so schedules can be delayed during the day, depending on traffic conditions. Frequency, therefore, can also be a problem. The tour itself is around one hour long and is a comprehensive tour of Bilbao old town and environs with stunning views of the Guggenheim Museum. Highly recommended.
Excellent expierence and well organized despite the fact that part of the tour was changed due to the fiesta in the city
Well done and comprehensive. More frequent service more buses would be a plus.
Good route and lovely driver. Only complaint is the regularity of the bus and no signs for the pickup points.
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.
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.
We enjoyed the ride. We were impressed by the city. We were lucky to catch the bus just before it was departing, since the bus only goes once an hour
Bilbao is a relatively new tourism destination since the opening of the Guggenheim so this tour gives a great overview of the city in a relatively short period of time. It's concise and interesting. There aren't very many actual buses doing the circuit, so plan your tour time.
