The trip was a great experience for the value. Even when you were just sitting in the bus between destinations, the views and surrounding area were beautiful. I think there were maybe 20-30 minutes at each stop - aside from lunch, which was probably around 2 hours - but that was usually enough time to explore and take pictures. The guide was great. (I cannot remember her name, but she was Italian.) I was the only English-speaker in the group, and she made sure to pull me aside so she could explain everything to me and let me ask any questions. She also directed me to a nice restaurant for lunch. The food might have been a little more expensive, but the waiter I had was so helpful and awesome, my lunch was one of the highlights of the trip. I really enjoyed the trip and would recommend to others.
After an earlier tour (Rias Baixas) we had hoped to get more information during the tour. This tour was light on information about the area. Particularly, we had only one mention of the Costa del Morte at the beginning of the day and no further mention despite the fact that we drove along this coast. There was a lot of free time given in Finisterre with no direction so we spent our time after lunch wandering aimlessly. That said, the tour route was spectacular and the guide and driver extremely pleasant. It was more a driving tour than a cultural tour.
great day trip, I tried to avoid them, but this one was excellent, driver and guide, whose names I've lost were very gd, no problems whatsoever, the trip was well timed, plenty of break's too get of and walk about? great!one thing that I would like however?is for passengers with hearing impairment! maybe provide a written inventory! not always possible to hear announcement or ask guide if busy?be quite easy to arrange and would make a massive difference to hearing impaired! Thank you
The experience was wonderful. First class all the way. Our guide Paloma was very knowlegeable about the historical significance of the towns we visited and was a wealth of information. The tour was relaxed and unhurried. We were given a lot of opportunities to enjoy the scenery, take beautiful photographs and create wonderful memories to remember.
An easy way to close off the camino and see some of the region. A little messy queuing in the morning, we arrived at 8.30 with no one else waiting but because of where we were standing were at the end of the queue. The girls from the two different tour company's were great as they worked together to get us on the correct bus.
