A day very rich in information, emotion and new experiences. The landscapes on the road, the traditions maintained, the protected places - all this imposes respect for the place visited. The multilingual explanations of the guides are impressive: a perfect mastery of the subjects in several languages and always the particular attention to any question asked. The organization is well established, the route is excellently studied and executed. The driver offered us safe and comfortable travel. Thanks a lot. The follow-up and alerts received from the organizers helps a lot to stay calm and not worry about forgetting your reservation. In summary, personally I had spent a very good day; maybe, a small recommendation for the end: on the way back, as there are no more explanations and the participants are mostly tired, put on soft background music to relax a little. Otherwise, highly recommended!!

Amazing experience! Totally worth the money! Ash was a great tour guide.. everything was extremely well planned and explained in both languages (Spanish and English). Would love to join other trips organized by this team!

Increíble excursión! Son 7 paradas y cada una tiene su encanto: la costa de la muerte fue espectacular y poder ver ese tipo de paisajes junto con la historia que los acompaña, es realmente un gusto.

Very well organized, very diverse. Culture and nature and history of Galicia. Super problem solver, very flexible, friendly guide and good chauffeur.

It was an amazing experience with the best guide ever. I am glad of choosing this tour. Thank you
