Chance to see the breathtaking Galician coastline with a few stops along the way. The driver, Pepe, was cheerful and was ready early at the Meeting Point, which was outside the “Orange” mobile phone shop in Plaza de Pontevedra. The bus was modern and comfortable, making for a smooth ride. As the only English speaker out of 12 people, the tour guide, Maria, was still able to take time to explain some info in English for me. Delicious seafood lunch in Finisterre (not included with ticket).
