What people are saying about Rías Baixas

It was a great experience. I loved all the places where we were, the tour guide (Martin) was very friendly, helpful and we had a lot of laughs with him. A charm!! And the fantastic boat ride. We stuffed ourselves with mussels that were delicious and a little white wine that went to the finger. In short.... I had a great time. I would repeat again.

Diego was so knowledgeable as well as fun! Also he informed us that the famous giant thurible ‘Botafumeiro’ might be swinging next today & YES It DID! Wish I could personally thank him today. Gracias! xxx

Very insightful tour. Great that you get to queue skip for the cathedral (the queue can be enormous during peak season). The guide Diego was very friendly and approachable.

Diego the guide has made the visit to Santiago De Compostela a little more special, with lots of context and vivid descriptions of the architecture, relics and events.

Very informative. Our guide Maria made it very interesting
