I thank

I want to congratulate the prompt response in resolving the pending issue and the expected response, you did not measure efforts to direct us to the chosen tour to Santiago De Compostela, it was better for the guide that Mr. Joaquim who knew the way to Santiago very well and clarified all our doubts. Thanks

Brilliant trip

Loved our trip to Santiago our tour guide was very informative and friendly We enjoyed the whole trip from pick up at our accommodation, the journey with stop over looking leprosy island, the visit to Santiago , looking around the shops, walking around the town and visit to the cathedral. Our tapas lunch was very good and the day was topped off by a visit to Valencia with stunning views from the fort and quick walk around the town and then the tour guides brilliant driving through the fort ( tight) gateways Just a fab day! Would definitely revommend

Great tour with a lot of history

Our tour guide did not only accompany us to Santiago de Compostela where we were free to either participate in the pilgrims mess or explore the city, but also did show us the castel of fortaleza valenca. At all stops we had plenty of time to explore them (in the streets next to the cathedral are fantastic bakeries). The lunch is fantastic.
