Beautiful and interesting tour of Northern Spain / Galicia. It is a long day but worth it. I would advise when you get to the Village of Finisterre for lunch, don't just go for the recommended lunch spot, take a walk along the restaurants to choose one that might suit you.

The guide provided us with information on the walk and there was enough markers on the way to ensure it was a pleasant day. Very good tour if you wanted to experience the journey.
