What people are saying about Galicia

Fantastic, especially the guide Martín, who knows perfectly how to make the trip enjoyable and interesting at the same time. He cares about everything with extraordinary professionalism. The trip very interesting and with many different stimuli. The only thing to improve would be to give more time at the food stop, especially in times of so much tourism with full bars.

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.

Wonderful experience and delighted with Combarros!! The rias are special and the boat trip is a pleasant surprise!! Our guide Mantin with great knowledge and excellent experience with all the details and information about the culture and always attentive and careful.

A nice day-trip with good value for money, nice way to see different towns in the Rías Baixas in a single day. Very professional and friendly guide and good stops along the way.

The excursion was a success. The wine was good and the mussels spectacular.
