Full description

Stop at O Grove Town, the perfect village for spending time in tranquility, and experiencing the sensations of the real and genuine Galicia.

Enjoy the rural atmosphere away from tourism and have a pleasant break and Galician meal. Take a walk through the vineyards of the very prestigious Albariño.

Have the opportunity to learn about the production of this excellent wine as well as engage in a tasting of three wines of the denomination Rias Baixas in good company. 

Next, stop at the shrine of “la Lanzada.” Get a full overview of this mystical place, established in the 9th century, and take a beautiful walk.

Cross part of the bay of Poio, and see beauty contained on a giant rock upon which it is built. See the granaries that surround it, the houses overlooking the sea, and the several stone crosses typical of Galicia, called Cruceiros, which are on the site.

Tour the characteristic streets and squares of this place, and have the possibility to take a real and authentic journey through time, as well as visit an area of great ecological value. 

Next stop at the island of Toja, famous for the production of soap and for its hot springs, located in an area called Red Natura 2000.

Discover a small museum of the old soap factory and a chapel completely covered with shells. End with a tour of the sea, during which you will admire and face directly the production of mussels, oysters, and scallops, making different stops to contemplate the watering holes. 

Taste steamed mussels in great quantity accompanied by one of the best local Albariño wines (Condes de Albarei) and shots of Crema de Orujo.

this tour today was a fantastic day out from start to finish . our driver and tour guide couldn't have been professional and friendly . the experience of seeing parts of Galicia will always be with me. highly recommend going on the tour. beautiful wine at the Albarino winery, the boat trip with mussels and more wine was a real treat the crew kept bringing more. seeing how the grow the shellfish was an eye opener, very entertaining crew. you will not be disappointed that's for sure. The small € paid for a full day with all the extras was a great package. The tour guide explained everything to me in English as well. fantastic

Espectacular, vale más la pena si tienes un día en santiago ir a la excursión que quedarte, el paseo en barco genial, comimos mejillones hasta decir no más y todo el vino que quieras! Muy bonitos todos los sitios visitados. Los tiempos son buenos. La guía muy amable!

Una buena forma de pasar el día. El tiempo acompañó. Ana, la guía, estuvo muy bien con sus comentarios. Y el paseo en barco, es verdad que puedes comer todos los mejillones que quieras, y muy buenos! En la última parada, merece la pena visitar el pueblo por los puentes desde la plaza, y la heladería entre Horreos, en la plaza, muy buena. El conductor muy bueno también! Gracias.
