Living Tours is Outstanding!!! 10/10
William_K

After having seen most of the sights around Porto, my wife and I thought that a trip to medieval Santiago de Compostela in Spain would be exciting. At first the trip seemed like a no-go, because four people are required for this trip. However, after finding out that we REALLY wanted to go, Living Tours made an exception and took us anyways. We really want to thank Living Tours for bending over backwards to make us happy. Needless to say, the trip was fantastic and our guide Francisco F. was outstanding. Francisco was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and took us to a fabulous restaurant for lunch. As for Santiago de Compostela, make sure you go, it’s living history. On the way back, we stopped in the small border town of Valença, again a winner! In sum, we had an unforgettable day thanks to Living Tours and Francisco.

Santiago de Compostela didn't disappoint! I wish we had more time to explore the Galician capital. Not even the rain could ruin the beauty and the strong emotions that you feel when you see the pilgrims celebrate the success of their journey.

We thoroughly enjoy our tour to both Santiago de Compostela & Valenca do Minho. Our tour guide was great and took us to a wonderful restaurant where we had course after course of absolutely delicious food! We went to mass at San Francisco church & toured the main Cathedral even though it is being renovated. Valenca had several churches to visit and great linens & towels in the shops. A wonderful day!

An SMS was sent the day before as a reminder. Pick-up time was on the dot. There were only five of us in the van. Very roomy travel. The high praise to our guide Ricardo. He is very knowledgeable and accomodating. He mentioned and showed us other places that might be of interest to us. This tour is highly recommended.

Our guide, Paula, was courteous and very well informed. She gave us an overview of the various areas we drove through as well as a very detailed description of Santiago de Compostela.

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
