What people are saying about Santiago de Compostela

Rough start but ended up a wonderful trip!

Didn't make the best first impression as there was confusion at the starting point, some guests didn't have their printed ticket (patrons' fault, not the guide's), and one couple was on the wrong bus as there were two tours starting at the same starting point. However, the tour itself was wonderful. The first city was nice, old, lots of history but not really our "thing", the second and third stops were stunning- absolutely incredible, beautiful and memorable and definitely worth the day trip out of Santiago de Compostela. The tour bus was nice. The boat ride was really unique, and seeing the underwater mussels etc was so cool! I ate way more mussels than I expected to, and we had enough wine that folks were dancing on the boat. Bus ride home was comfortable, many people napped, overall a great experience I would recommend despite the rocky start.

Don't Go to the Cathedral and Museum WITHOUT a Guide

We are so glad we went to the Cathedral and Museum with a guide. Elena is a young lady, and she has a degree in Arts and History. I had asked her Major at the University because she knows so much about including the years of occurrence. Many pieces at the Museum wouldn't have meant much without her explanation. While she was taking the time to talk in front of many artifacts, we saw many people had just walked by, and I felt sorry for them missing such meaningful pieces. Ask questions, she will have the answers! Thanks, Elena, we had a wonderful experience.

Driving tour around Finisterre, Costa del Morte and Muxia

After an earlier tour (Rias Baixas) we had hoped to get more information during the tour. This tour was light on information about the area. Particularly, we had only one mention of the Costa del Morte at the beginning of the day and no further mention despite the fact that we drove along this coast. There was a lot of free time given in Finisterre with no direction so we spent our time after lunch wandering aimlessly. That said, the tour route was spectacular and the guide and driver extremely pleasant. It was more a driving tour than a cultural tour.

An amazing insight into the history of Santiago.

Our guide Elena was excellent ,she had all the information we needed to know about the history of Santiago, Elena has a great sense of humour, and speaks english very well. I would recommend anybody travelling to Santiago to go on this guided tour, well worth the money. Thank you Elena

A guided tour through the cathedral and museum is a must.

We knew that the cathedral was under restoration and yet we were not disappointed thanks to our guide who did a good job, and the museum visit. However we should mention that the tour did not included a walk around the cathedral to learn and appreciate the symbolic facades.
