Guggenheim Museum Bilbao: Guide or Self-Guided?

I went to the Guggenheim 10 years ago with a tour group and we had a wonderful guide take us through the museum. My family and I are going to Bilbao in June. They have never visited the Guggenheim before. Has anyone been recently and could recommend either the tour guide or a self-guided tour? I assume the self-guided tour would be an audio guide. I don't know if the first tour I took through the museum was organized by Globus or the Guggenheim. I enjoyed the personal experience of the guide, but I'm not sure if that's something I can do or book in advance. We arrive in Bilbao from the States on Saturday and plan to visit the museum on Sunday, so any pre-arranging I did would be long-distance. I'm sure that whatever we do, our visit will be memorable and enjoyable, but it would be nice to have some kind of guide.

The museum gives free, people-guided tours every couple of hours starting at either eleven or noon. Basque, Spanish, and English - - nothing else.
