A part of Spain we have never visited - what a comprehensive tour of your home town! So much covered... local fishing, trade, the market, the Camino, the gastronomy, local history, churches, architecture!! Amazed you were able to cover so much in such a short time. What a great team. Thank you so much for giving us such an informative and interesting tour from our armchairs. Will definitely join another of your tours. Well done!

Wonderful tour by father and son. Lovely to learn more about a place I´ve never heard of. I look forward to more tours and learning more about the Celtic history of the area and the myths and legends.

What a smashing tour this was; both Sean and his son did us proud. Everything about it, from the harbour views and fish market to the streets and church was just what we needed this morning ... it was perfection.

Premier league guide - commentary covered history, gastronomy, how people live locally. Commentary was constant which is vital for these tours, I think.

Brilliant tour of such a pretty colourful harbour. Sean and his son were wonderful guides.

A really well-balanced tour of scenery, local fishing industry, buildings, food and history. Sean is extremely lucid and engaging. Good luck to Sean and his son!

Very good spoken English, informative and easy to understand. He also gave a very good introduction to the area and the context it is in (language, geography, etc)

Wonderful first tour by Sean and his son. Good sound and clear picture with good steady camerawork. I notice he was wearing the furry thing on his mike and wonder why other guides don´t wear this as it seems to stop the wind interference. Loved learning about Galicia, seeing the fishing port, the market and hearing the language. Can´t wait to go there. Look forward to more tours here and the cooking!
