Where you'll be

We will see Praza da Quintana, my favorite and one of the most spectacular in the city, the Plaza del Obradoiro and stroll through the streets with more charm visiting the most characteristic points of Santiago. We will also go to the Plaza de Abastos (local fresh market) and you can see why it is the second most visited place in Santiago after the Basilica.

Riccardo fue un guía genial, nos acompañó por todo el centro, respondió a todas nuestras dudas sobre la catedral y su historia y nos recomendó sitios para disfrutar de Santiago cómo lo hacen los gallegos.

La experiencia con Ricardo fue maravillosa. Ricardo es extremadamente educado, amable y carismático. Lo que diferencia a Ricardo de otros guías que hemos tenido es su bagaje: Ricardo es arqueólogo y acumula experiencias por todo el mundo, lo cual se nota en su forma de describir la historia e idiosincrasia de una ciudad. Nos enseñó sitios increíbles de Santiago relatándonos de una forma amena, didáctica y divertida toda la historia y leyendas de la ciudad, añadiendo a la visita recomendaciones culturales y gastronómicas que fueron un total acierto. Ha sido una suerte conocerlo. Grazie mille Ricardo!!

Una hermosa oportunidad de conocer la ciudad, tener claves y recomendaciones de alguien que vive en la ciudad. Ricardo ha sido muy atenta y generoso, incluso con el tiempo que me ha dedicado. Lo recomiendo mucho. No os lo perdáis!

Riccardo was a great tour-guide. He has a lot of knowledge about the Catholicism, the buildings, the city itself and for us the most important, about the galician culture. We received a lot of Tips for our further trip through Santiago de Compostela and every Tip was great (Restaurants, Bars, Wines, etc.) ... Thank you Riccardo.
