The trip was very interesting & enjoyable especially the boat ride with mussel tasting & wine, we also tried the oysters which were very fresh!

A beautiful experience, throughout the trip the guides were explaining different stories of Galicia and the places we visited. I loved the visit to Combarro and the boat trip along the estuary. Too bad they left very little free time in other places, such as Pontevedra or Cambados. The visit would have been 10 if, for example, we could have seen the Pazo de Fenfiñanes from the inside.

Excellent trip and exceptional guide

The Tour was very well organized, respecting the schedules and tastes of the clients despite the fact that we were many. Virginia, our guide is excellent, very knowledgeable about its themes, talkative, friendly and very attentive to any of our questions. I recommend that customers try for her if she wants to do a high standard tour.
