Welcome to Guided Galicia
We offer specialised Private Guided Shore Excursions for cruise ship passengers calling to the ports of Vigo and La Coruña, Galicia, Spain and full one-day tours for tourist groups.
Galicia is a magical place, far removed from the stereotypical Spain of flamenco and bullfighting so often portrayed in travel brochures. Galicia has a strong Celtic link and the sound of the Galician gaita (bagpipe) fills the air, its many rivers, green valleys, brooding mountains and weather only gives strength to this Celtic tie.
Galicia has a rich heritage, with lush winegrowing areas, the famous Albarino is probably the best known but there are many more varieties little heard of outside Galicia just waiting to be savoured. Celtic ruins and perfectly restored castles. Ancient monasteries and stunning cathedrals, the most famous of them is Santiago de Compostela, which was once the third most important pilgrimage after the Vatican and Jerusalem. Galicia has many picturesque fishing villages and beautiful white sand beaches. Vigo is the second largest fishing port in the world after Tokyo and is home to some of the best seafood in the world, sample the incredibly fresh bounty from the sea with a glass of crisp Albarino and savour the moment.
We want you to experience the best of our little corner of the world in the short time that you’re with us. Our tours offer a wonderful insight into Galician culture, history, cuisine and architecture. Be warned, Galicia is an alluring place and once you’ve had a taste of its charm you’ll be coming back for more.

Our tours depart from your Cruise Ship in Vigo and return one hour before depature. The Vigo port is in a unique position, as it is located right at the heart of Vigo's historic quarter and because our tours end with a walking tour of the historic quarter, you are never more than five minutes walk from your Cruise Ship.
Our tours are all conducted in English and depart for Santiago de Compostela, Baiona, Pontevedra, and Tui among others. Private Guided Tours are a great way to see Galicia in the short time you are with us and they offer so much more than the coach options. We also offer walking tours of Vigo itself.
