    We covered a lot of ground. Our tour guide was very good, the bus was comfortable., the only downside was that Muxta was fogged in, but then that made for some interesting lighting effects if you're a photographer. Ezara Falls was less than exciting due to the adjoining power plant and resultant inability to get close, but nevertheless worthwhile. Ponte Maceira was better than anticipated and the bus driver proved his skill crossing the narrow bridge in the face of a stalled vehicle. Fog or no, good trip, recommended.

    The tour on July 9, 2019 was wonderful. Our guide, Elena, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great fun. She presented everything in a very engaging way. We were very impressed. Elena picked a wonderful restaurant - the food was great and typical of Galicia. Afterwards, Elena prepared the queimada - a traditional Galician beverage involving magical incantations - like a true (good) witch. :) She's a great actress.
