What people are saying about Pontevedra

It has been an unbeatable experience. I recommend it to anyone who wants to spend an unforgettable day with a guide, in our case, Martin, exceptional. Congratulations to the whole team for planning this activity. At the different stops they leave time for you to be free and you can walk where you want and with enough time. And the boat trip with seafood tasting was great.
