Manuel was phenomenal, his knowledge was top class and he made our day fantastic. This is a must do tour. Lunch was awesome, our free time was sufficient and the trip to Minho was a lovely way to break the return trip. A lovely day.
Excellent tour, well organised professional. Just keep in mind that because it's run by a Portuguese company and with Portuguese guides, the visit in Santiago is not guided, but not a big detractor. Valenca do Minho is an interesting little town.
The tour in Santiago de Compostela was not a real guided tour. So- the passangers should be better prepared doing homework to discover the sightseeing and local history on their own. Trip was very nice including splended lunch!
Was a very enlightening trip. Worth the time and effort. It was made even better by our experienced guide Francisco Fonsela. His sense of humour patience and knowledge of history made this tour a very enjoyable one. Highly recommended
The lines were so long to get into the Church you didn't have enough time to see everything , then it was lunch, which was amazing, but took an hour and half, then we left to see some fort nobody cared about, i would have rather stayed in Santiago and seen more of the sights!!! Our guide was very nice and offered a lot of information, but talked a little too much for my liking, one problem she had to tell everything in two languages, so it was constant talking for the 3 hours it took to get there!!
We loved our tour to Santiago, it was a really memorable day. Our guide, Tiago, was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
He gave us useful information before arrival and got us there on time for the Pilgrims noon mass which is 11 Porto time. I chose to skip the delicious lunch because I wanted to spend more time in the cathedral and he graciously accommodated my request .
There were two Viator choices for this destination, and I didn't know which to choose, but selected this one, which was the one that happened to include lunch. The other describes gazing at the cathedral on a guided tour, which I think would have been better if that is what it really was. Overall, it was an interesting day, and it was nice to see the cathedral, but I felt I was just spinning my wheels in the city, not really knowing what I was looking at in the town. I didn't go into the cathedral since there was a mass going on, so I walked around and spent time in the main square waiting to meet up with our guide and fellow passengers. Then around 2 pm we went for a terrific lunch highlight of the day, actually that lasted over two hours. It is a long way to ride for one day, but it was interesting and relaxing, and our Living Tours guide was excellent, yet I felt that we should have had more direction than just being given a map and told to meet up in 90 minutes to go to lunch. I am glad I went, but I felt somehow I missed out on something.
Santiago was an unexpected discovery. We didn't even know that It was the third holy place fo Christians. The compound is huge. The cathedral immense, the altar so unusual,the organs like the wings of an angel. The place itself was impressive. Our guide Nunu had all the qualities of a superb guide: knowledgable, friendly, caring , in addition to being an excellent driver. Our problem concerns the organization of the trip. We spent more than an hour and a half to drive, but when we arrived the mass was already on and the entrance was closed. Then we had to wait in line for more than 40 minutes. The guide was not with us to explain the details of the cathedral. At last another church recommended by our guide to visit was closed. What was the purpose of the trip? It was more like a check that we were there. Also in Valencia do Minho the time was just thirty minutes to see the old church and do the shopping. It does not sound substantial for any kind of visit. After all, we wanted to breathe in the atmosphere of the place- instead we were running to be on time by the van. The last problem was the dual language. The guide had to explain the information in two languages. I do not think it makes the tour very interesting when the guide speaks another language. I personally fall asleep. The result is obvious: I didn't catch up with what I was supposed to hear in my language.
