Cruise Ship Guests

Basque Day Tours For Cruise Ship Passengers

  • When docking in the port of Bilbao in Getxo on your European cruise we know your time is valuable as you may only have a half-day to see the city.
  • For our cruise ship guests we know that your time in the Basque Country may be limited and you desire to see Bilbao, the Guggenheim Museum, Getxo and the surrounding area!
  • Thus, we design tours and shore excursions that show you the best of the region in a way that maximizes your time ashore!
  • We can take you on private guided tour that highlights the best of Bilbao and the beautiful coastline of the Basque Country.
  • However, if you have a specific interest we can absolutely accommodate your wishes while considering time constraints.
