Full description

After getting picked up from your hotel in Santiago de Compostela, begin your journey along the Galician coast. Your first stop will be at a traditional Galician village. Here, head to the top of a Roman bridge where you can admire breathtaking views of the river.

Next, head to Muxia Lighthouse, where you can visit the famous sanctuary and head to the top of the lighthouse for a unique coastal experience. Continue your tour with a visit to the region's most important lighthouse, Finisterre. From atop of this picturesque lighthouse, admire panoramic views of what was considered by the Roman's to be the end of the earth.

Break for lunch in the town of Finisterre before heading to the Ezaro Waterfall, the only waterfall that arrives directly into the ocean. Later, head to Carnota, where you can see the largest horréo, an old granary suspended by pillars, in existence. Finally, head to the village of Muros, a traditional coastal village. Enjoy some free time for a coffee or stroll around the main square before heading back to Santiago.

Awesome day. Lots of stops but we were given a good amount of time at each. I don't know if I can pick a favorite! Ash is an incredibly knowledgable guide. I was amazed by how much content he was able to fit in/share in both Spanish and English. I understand both languages and did not notice one language receiving more information than the other. If you love coastlines and visiting small towns, I would highly recommend this tour!

The places we visited were very beautiful and recommend this tour for that. Each places you have 30 mins more or less to see, take pictures, wander around. The guide was a good person, explains very well in Spanish but as being not a native English speaker I would say there were only 60% of information were given.

The excursion is very complete. The sites visited are worth it. Maybe there should be more stops before lunch and leave the afternoon relaxed because it got heavy at the end. The last stop to see the meat horreo was only 19 min and, although the hórreo is very good, it could be eliminated because we were very tired
