A phenomenal excursion, the day is used with different visits to which one is better, from the winery where the girl who guides is a charm, through the mussel madness and visit the beautiful Cambarros and the waterfall for a refreshing finale.

What a wonderful day , wine tasting, waterfalls and all you can eat mussels and wine on a beautiful catamaran! Still enough time for a lovely oceanfront lunch with great recommendation from the guide! Galicia you are so beautiful!

Excellent, very pleasant, the guide was very good, good communication and knowledge of the area. The experience on the catamaran was very good, the attention, food, drink, everything was very good.
