Overview
Visiting the UNESCO-listed Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela from Porto is tricky without a rental car. This tour makes it easy, and adds the bonus of a guide for background on this important pilgrimage spot. Admire the scenery on route, get time to explore Santiago’s 11th-century cathedral, have lunch (own cost), and souvenir-shop; and visit Valenca do Minho. Upgrade to include lunch and hotel transfers for extra convenience.

Our trip was on 13th March, and the cathedral was closed due to covid-19. This was very disappointing as the main purpose of my booking was to visit the cathedral. Everything was quiet and most shops were closed. Lunch was okay. At the end of the day it felt like we drove to

I am giving this trip a 2 and not a 1 only because the guide we had was very knowledgeable and kind. We went on the trip on a Sunday and it was pouring rain (I am surprised that the tour company didn't cancel the trip) The trip is 2 1/2 hours each way, with about 3 - 3-1/2 hour
