A good way to spend the day. The time accompanied. Ana, the guide, was very good with her comments. And the boat ride, it is true that you can eat all the mussels you want, and they are very good! At the last stop, it is worth visiting the town over the bridges from the square, and the ice cream parlor between Horreos, in the square, very good. Very good driver too! Thanks.

Great trip for the family! Unlimited fresh muscle on the boat, probably ate 2kg per person. It is a great opportunity to learn about Galician traditions.

Enjoyed the trip, especially the boat ride with mussels and drinks, it was so delicious! The view during the boat ride is beautiful!
