My wife and I joined your one day tour service on July 16th, Tuesday, which is from Porto to Santiago de Compostera. Our Guide and Driver was Mr. Daniel Hota. We were so lucky and happy, thanks to Daniel. His guidance by english was very clear and easy to understand, and his driving technique was excellent. Thanks to Daniel, we could have enjoyable tour and lunchtime. Thank you very much giving us good memories.
