Thanks so much for the email and pictures! We all enjoyed you so much and I am still grateful you were willing to take us even though there were so many of us. I have been meaning to email you and thank you but it is amazing how fast real life happens when you get home...busy, busy, busy.
We were serious….if you ever come to the States and visit Las Vegas you really could stay with us. Now that our kids are gone we have empty rooms with beds. Our only problem would be we don’t spend time where all the tourists go….like the Strip (that’s the place where all the big casinos and shows are). I wouldn’t be as good a tour guide for you as you were for us J, but I’m sure we could give a “little” guidance in that respect J. Take care and thanks again. You were great!
Hello from Miami,
Just wanted to say "thank You" for being a great guide in Vigo - we all enjoyed your tour and friendliness!
Everyone was very happy with you :-)
Brendan,We all arrived home safely, just in time to face the possibility of a hurricane. Fortunately, Florida escaped it, but other parts of the East coast will not be so fortunate.Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our day with you. It was a very relaxing, but interesting, way to end our touring. I will certainly not hesitate to recommend you. We loved Santiago de Compostela and it was fun to pass by Ponte Vedra. You could also tell Zena and I enjoyed the local wine!Hope your parents enjoyed their visit.All the best,

We have such wonderful memories from our day spent in the Galicia region of Spain! Our tour of Vigo, Cambados, Combarro and Pontevedra was one of the most memorable and fun days of our trip. We would have never been able to visit so many interesting towns of the region nor would we have come away with such knowledge about the history, culture and beauty of this region had it not been for you! We will never forget the lovely Plaza de Fefinanes of Cambados, or wandering the narrow streets of Combarro village with its fisherman houses and the horreos suspended above the sea. Our stop at a outdoor restaurant patio where we had cappuccinos and coffee as we watched the fisherman readying their boats for the day is a favorite snapshot in my mind of our visit to Spain. Pontevedra was another delight and then we were on our way back to Vigo. What can we say about your recommendation of a wonderful local restaurant for lunch- at your suggestion we sampled the incredibly delicious seafood and Albarino wine of the region and left immensely satisfied by one of the best meals of our entire trip! Your knowledge, flexibility and fun personality made our tour with you one of the highlights of our two week European cruise!
With gratitude, Sharon, David, Jean and Bobbye
Thank you for such a wonderful day -- we not only enjoyed spending time exploring Vigo and the surrounding areas, we very much enjoyed your company. You are obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about the history, traditions and beautiful sites in this beautiful part of Spain. We also appreciated how you designed a unique tour to suit both the weather and the interests of our small family group (two parents and 10 year old boy.) It was a relaxing and unhurried day, but we managed to see many beautiful sites near Vigo, do a bit of shopping and sample the local food, wine and beer! We were delighted with this tour and are most eager to return to Vigo again. We highly recommend your tours to anyone who wishes to experience this beautiful and unspoiled part of Spain!
All the best,
Richard, Nancy and Evan
Thanks is not enough for the excellent tour you gave the four of us in Vigo & the surrounding areas May of 08. You were there waiting for us at our predetermined area even though it was in the rain & attended to all of our needs. We all agreed that you are the most knowledgeable, passionate & personable tour guide that we have had the pleasure of touring with. You truly are a fountain of exciting information. Any future tourist that uses your services will have an ultimate experience like we shared. I highly recommend your services & have done so with perspective clients.
Thanking you again,
We booked a private guided tour of Baiona and Vigo with Guided Galicia. Brendan promptly replied to all of our emails and created a customized tour based on our interests. He was waiting for us when we got off the cruise ship and we felt instantly at ease, as though we had an old friend showing us around. Brendan was pleasant, warm, accommodating, and professional and we really enjoyed our day with him. I would highly recommend your service to anyone visiting the area. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Brendan was very friendly and accommodating to our group. We're very glad we decided to go with a personal tour of the Galicia region rather than a cruise ship sponsored tour. Brendan was very flexible and interested in showing us what we wanted to see rather than a prearranged itinerary without our input. He informed us about the history and culture of the region and took us to less touristy places than we could have ever seen in a large group tour. For lunch, Brendan also made sure we had a flavor of the Galicia cuisine of where the locals frequented. It was a fun filled day. We learned as much as we could have about this part of Spain in a one day tour.
