Full description

Get out of the city and explore the stunning Cies Islands on a day trip from Santiago de Compostela. Visit the Playa de Rodas, go for a hike in the beautiful scenery, and learn about the island on a guided tour.

Meet your guide in Santiago de Compostela and board a bus to Vigo. From there, hop on board a catamaran and sail to the Cies Islands. After arriving at the islands, join your guide for a 1-hour walking tour of the island. See the stunning beaches and learn about this sliver of paradise.

Next, enjoy free time to explore the island. Relax on a beach, go for a swim, or explore one of the many hiking paths. Choose a local cafe or restaurant to enjoy a meal and a drink in before returning to the catamaran. Board the boat and head back to Vigo, where you'll disembark and board a bus to return to the starting point in Santiago.

Me esperaba algo mejor. Al principio un poco caótico todo porque no aparecía la guía y el chofer se tenia que encargar de todo . Las Islas Cíes muy bonito pero la organización del tour regular para el precio que tiene
