Excellent tour!
Rating: 5 out of 5
Excellent tour of Santiago with Matais. He made the tour really interesting, with lots of historical information, but put across in a fun and engaging way. Would really recommend as a great intro to this beautiful city. Gill12013

I went on a Red Umbrella tour with Mataus, it was a really good tour, packed with information and insights, put across in a really interesting way. Saw lots of the local sights, learnt a lot about Galicia and Santiago de Compostela, given some great tips on key sights and how to find your way back to the main areas. Also packed with advice on additional places to visit (which I did so great advice). A really good tour, really any visitor or pilgrim should do this walk even after they have walked to the city.

Today we took a guided tour around Santiago with Mattias, and it was an enjoyable experience. He was excellent in all explanations, funny, witty and cultured. We highly recommend the tour with the red umbrella's group. Chiara C
