Your guided visit reveals why this is one of the world's most famous cathedrals, filled with Romanesque sculptures, multi-tiered bell towers, porticoes, cloisters and portals. See and experience the highlights of the cathedral's breathtaking interior, including the lofty barrel-vaulted nave, the air thick with heady incense, the golden altar and the crypt housing St James’ remains.
Have free time to have a traditional lunch of octopus or seafood in Santiago (own expense) and explore Santiago's UNESCO World-Heritage-listed old town.
After your visit to Santiago de Compostela, get back in your air-conditioned coach and travel to the town of Viana do Castelo in northern Portugal. The town's pre-Roman citadel atop Mt Santa Luzia dates back to the Mesolithic era. Here, pay a visit to the Basilica of St Luzia, whose design was inspired by Montmartre's Sacre Coeur in Paris.
Take a drive through the city center before returning to Porto, where your day trip concludes.

My friend and I took this tour yesterday. We were collected from our apartment in a sparklingly clean minibus and then collected others from their hotels. The guide, Tiago, was fantastic. He was unfailingly polite, helpful we are getting on a bit and not so agile getting in and out of transport, cheerful and amusing. His commentaries, in both Portuguese and English, were very informative and we learned a good deal...very useful for first-time visitors to Portugal. The party had a very good tapas lunch together following free time in Santiago de Compostela. We highly recommend this trip and especially Tiago Santos as guide.
