“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

My Bilbao greater was amazing! Olesa took me on a three hour tour, complete with pinxtos and coffee! She then offered to meet me later that night with her friends for a few outdoor concerts and drinks in Old Town. I traveled around Europe for a full month, and this was by far one of my best experiences. Anyone visiting Bilbao NEEDS to do this!

“Spain at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I have had an excellent day with the Greeter named Marivi- she was knowledgeable, experienced, attentive, and great company. Should I have not had an opportunity to be walked by the Greeter, I would have missed the depth and roots of this society and the atmosphere. I recommend such great service.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

I was lucky enough to be greeted by a Bilbao greeter that I am confident will continue to be a good friend. It was so nice to know a person who knows Bilbao & the surrounding area. She wanted me to have the best experiences possible and advised me on several things during my trip that made a big difference. Thank you very much for the cross cultural exchange & friendship.

“Bilbao Greeters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We booked this service from home through the internet. It is such a great way to meet local people and let them share their favourite places with visitors.
You meet someone from the city and you spend a few hours together with an ordinary person, not a tourguide or anything just somebody who is from that area.
