A great day after a long Camino walk

A thoroughly enjoyable day! The tour took us to beautiful locations and the commentary (in Spanish and English) was informative, engaging and appropriate. I heartily recommend it.
Great day trip with lots of information. Good value.

Booked because the guided tour offered English. The guide, Anna, was great and gave so much info (in both Spanish and English) on the culture and region. I appreciated we had own options for lunch in Finisterre- there are many cafes on the harbor. We wanted to visit Finisterre and Muxia; this tour included both.

The trip to Finisterre and Muxia on a rainy and windy day added to the intrigue and mystery of this hauntingly beautiful area of Galicia. Our guide, Ana, was graciously informative.
The best tour guide in Galicia

This was the least expensive tour we took in our three weeks of travels in northern Spain and by far the best one! Ana is an incredible guide, the only one in three weeks we met with a great command of English language and the incredible knowledge of Galicia. Wonderful bus and itinerary! Thank you for the great long day! Ana , thank you!!!
Cool sites but long day

In retrospect I would have preferred a shorter tour just to Fisterra and maybe Muxia. Half day trip would have been great instead of over 9 hours.
