Full description

Get out of the city and explore the stunning Cies Islands on a day trip from Santiago de Compostela. Visit the Playa de Rodas, go for a hike in the beautiful scenery, and learn about the island on a guided tour.

Meet your guide in Santiago de Compostela and board a bus to Vigo. From there, hop on board a catamaran and sail to the Cies Islands. After arriving at the islands, join your guide for a 1-hour walking tour of the island. See the stunning beaches and learn about this sliver of paradise.

Next, enjoy free time to explore the island. Relax on a beach, go for a swim, or explore one of the many hiking paths.

I expected better. At first everything was a bit chaotic because the guide did not appear and the driver had to take care of everything. The Cíes Islands very beautiful but the organization of the regular tour for the price it has
