Full description
Take a day to get to know the Costa da Morte and the most rugged Atlantic coast facade in Galicia. Discover places of unique and stately beauty, such as Ponte Maceira and Muros, which has the privilege of owning an authentic marine quarter. Muros, with its beautifully restored old town, maintained its original image and now is its own sign of identity against the excesses of the coastline. The next stop is Ézaro in the extreme south of the Coast of Death. The waterfall of Ézaro is the only waterfall in Europe where fresh water pours directly into ocean. See Cape Finisterre Lighthouse, the westernmost area of Europe. Since ancient times, this place was considered by the Romans to be the end of the earth. Here you can enjoy stunning views of the cliffs, brave the waters of the Atlantic, and also take some free time for lunch in the town of Finisterre. Finally, discover another essential point, Muxía, a typical fishing village well known for its Virxe da Barca sanctuary, a baroque building built in the 11th-century chapel with a balcony facing towards the sea. Do not miss the opportunity to discover one of the most unique areas of Galicia.

It was an absolutely pleasant experience! Though as with any group tour, you wish you have more time in certain areas that you find more interesting than others. I loved the area's history which she explained in detail, why this is called that and where it originally stemmed. I must note though that it was particularly windy when we went.. I should have completely expected that since it was a COASTAL tour :') so best to bring a windbreaker! Comfy shoes aren't necessarily a must since you'll be on the coaster most of the time! There are some areas that you walk around 15-20 minutes from the parking to the site so sneakers or anything you're good walking in on rocky/cobblestone terrain, by all means, go for that. If I were to do this again, I would definitely bring a windbreaker, sunglasses, and water! Stay hydrated :)

We've been very satisfied with the trip - a great guide (told us much information not only about the places but also about culture etc.). We saw a lot of places, the trip was well organized and there was enough time to see everything we wanted and to have lunch.

Everything about the trip was wonderful...convenience of boarding location, our guide (Antonio), the length of time at each stop, the incredible scenery. The only thing that marred it was the talkative passengers around us in the bus...we could not always hear the guide when he was speaking English. We pointed this out to our guide, early in the day, but nothing changed. I know it was probably a difficult situation to handle, but we felt 'unheard' and consequently missed a lot of the interesting history and sights that he pointed out along the bus ride.
