Discover the beauty and history shared by Portugal and Spain!


Depart the pier in a private van and drive to Baiona. Upon arrival in Baiona Old Quarter we will walk through the winding cobblestone streets, passing the cloistered Convent of the Dominicas, the Misericordia Chapel, and Casa Lorenzo Correa that serves as Baiona's Town Hall and the Monterreal Fortress. Constructed in the 14th century, the walled fortress now contains a luxury hotel that resembles a Galician manor house.

You'll then drive along the beautiful coast of Galicia to La Guardia, near the border with Portugal, to visit Mount Santa Tecla. En route to the summit, you will stop at an Iron Age settlement.

Continuing to Valenca do Minho, Portugal, an attractive town that invites you to visit its streets filled with pottery, linen & crockery. Cross over Minho River that forms the border between the 2 countries and enjoy the spectacular views. You'll have some time on your own to wander around and browse the shops.

The tour concludes upon return to the ship.

A Recent Review of this tour

Miguel was a terrific guide. We had a chance to see much more in a shorter period of time than if we had tried to do this itinerary on our own. What an interesting perspective on this part of the world!
