Let's see ... The beach of the cathedrals is divine, but it has made us a horrible day (gale, rain, cold) although it was worth it, since we were already aware, and entered the pools. For those who go on this date: Long sleeves, long pants, rain poncho, umbrellas (better the poncho because the other thing flies), and even if it sounds funny, some socks and if they have spare sneakers, the better. I'm done with my feet full of water and ice cream. There are considerable puddles, which you must get into to keep moving forward. Lugo has been boring, bland ... A waste of time, in a word, just like Ribadeo, neither chicha, nor lemonade. Two hours one way / two hours back is worth it for the beach, but not for the rest. I think that a tour with only the beaches would be much better. I would pay the same. Maria, our guide, very nice, attentive, and trained. And José, the very friendly driver.

Excellent experience, a full day with two first class guides María and Antón who accompanied us at all times with their explanations, in the visit to the center of Burgos with Antón it was extraordinary with their detailed and entertaining explanations that enriched us with their more than enough knowledge . Also say that the day accompanied throughout the Tour.

Comfortable and pleasant visit. Good guide who informed about many historical, social and cultural aspects of the places we visited. A comfortable way to see the beach of the Cathedrals, the wall and the historic center of Lugo and walk and eat in Ribadeo

I like the Cathedral Beach , So beautiful and take lots of pictures. I saw everybody very happy there, even many tourists. Everybody respect the rules for protection of COVID. So there is safe place. Lugo is Nice city; just we have too little time.

A great planning, which allows you to fully enjoy all the places of interest that are offered in this excursion. Highly recommended and very professional guides.
