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.

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

The tour was well planned, in general, the right times and very good explanations from the guide, Martín. Very nice him and the driver. I just think that the company should not sell all the seats on the bus, it was full of people, without natural ventilation and that we cannot afford in times of pandemic, for everyone's safety. And don't let the music on the bus go too loud. As for the places, it is almost impossible to eat in Fisterra town if you go alone, they do not serve you in the restaurants because they prefer to give priority to tables with more people, much less if you do not have a reservation made. Since it was lunchtime, everyone was either full or not admitting those of us who were going solo. It was an odyssey to find a place to eat, which was definitely not the best in terms of taste but in kindness and willingness to attend (El Capitan).
