Is quite easy to realize that Bilbao. Open Tourism is something related to tourism. That´s why our webpage is A little bit more difficult is to guess that BOT is a running tours experience. The name doesn´t make big sense with that. Nevertheless, our profile on Twitter says Running Tours Bilbao, so this way anyone who reads it can easily know what our activity is about.

But we´re getting tired of the bad weather we´re having last weeks in Bilbao, and as our tours have been mostly done in rainy days, I think that since today we can be called Bilbao. Open Umbrella, Raining Tours Bilbao. Because the name must describe the experience properly.
