Guided Tour of Santiago de Compostela

Book a private Guided Tour of the Old Town of Santiago de Compostela for your group. Santiago de Compostela is known for being the final destination of the Camino de Santiago and the resting place of the Apostle Saint James.

But there is much more to Santiago then just a Church: In between the pilgrims, with their raw emotions of having accomplishing the Camino that they will share to any listening soul, the many students and the colourful locals with their Celtic traditions, their love of music, storytelling and food, and Santiago itself with its History, its delicious gastronomy and of course its Cathedral, no-one can be immune to the atmosphere of Santiago.

So let us guide you through Santiago's Old Medieval Town with its impressive Baroque buildings in granite, the grandiose 12th century Romanesque Cathedral, its 18th century lively market of Abastos and medieval frame on a 3h guided tour to discover all the treasures our wonderful city has to offer.
