Marvel at the vintage luxury automobiles in a Rolls-Royce Museum tucked away in a remote mountain fortress, and then meander through the vibrant old quarter of Bilbao.

Departing from the pier, it's a scenic drive inland through the enchanting mountains that define Spain's beautiful Basque country. In time, you'll come upon majestic Concejuelo Castle, a treasure hidden away off the main road. What's even more remarkable is the Rolls-Royce Museum that's all but hidden inside its tower, the Torre Loizaga.

This little-known, yet amazing collection of luxury automobiles contains more than 40 vintage Rolls-Royces, including a 1910 Silver Ghost and a legendary Phantom IV, of which only 18 were ever made, strictly for heads of state such as Queen Elizabeth. To complement the priceless Rolls-Royces, there are more than 25 other makes of luxury cars, including a Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Testarossa and several rare Bentleys.

After you have filled your head with thoughts of owning one of these beauties, it's time to resume your tour and travel back to Bilbao for a walking tour of its old quarter, known as the Casco Viejo. It's a wonderfully vibrant district full of historical monuments, tapas bars and colorful shops.

Following your walking tour of the old quarter, you'll rejoin your coach and transfer directly back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 3-hours of moderate to strenuous walking/standing. The tour is not suitable for wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Weather appropriate clothing; sun caps; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
