Pick up and drop off were very convenient. Guide was not only knowledgeable but seemed to have a real interest in the topics and places we visited. She gave the tour in two languages and was able to keep the entire group engaged. Outstanding value.

I never got an email approving my trip so I didn't go.

Maria was a wonderful guide but we couldn’t get in to see tower of Hercules just walked around outside. We were dropped off in Betanzos for two hours for lunch that took 30 minutes with no info on where we might want to go. Would have liked to know where old town was and other points of interest. We did walking tour later but didn’t help with extra time.
