Very nice trip; I can definitely recommend it. The tourleader was friendly and knew a lot about the places we visited. He was fluent in English and Spanish. The lady at the winetasting had more problems of speaking English. Fortunately I speak some Spanish and some other people in the group were kind enough to translate, because this was the only time the tourleader wasn't there. The drinks and mussels on the boat were nice.

Rough start but ended up a wonderful trip!

Didn't make the best first impression as there was confusion at the starting point, some guests didn't have their printed ticket (patrons' fault, not the guide's), and one couple was on the wrong bus as there were two tours starting at the same starting point. However, the tour itself was wonderful. The first city was nice, old, lots of history but not really our "thing", the second and third stops were stunning- absolutely incredible, beautiful and memorable and definitely worth the day trip out of Santiago de Compostela. The tour bus was nice. The boat ride was really unique, and seeing the underwater mussels etc was so cool! I ate way more mussels than I expected to, and we had enough wine that folks were dancing on the boat. Bus ride home was comfortable, many people napped, overall a great experience I would recommend despite the rocky start.
