Day by day itinerary

 DAY 1:
VIGO
  • 11:15AM (be about 5min. before start time) :  Our foodie walk of Vigo  starts  with a gentle walk through  Vigo´s streets to the local  food market, recently re-built into a modern, urban -style market. The stalls sell a huge variety of local produce from fresh fruit and vegetables to meats, cheeses, cakes and  seafood  from the local catch of the day
  • Then quickly on to our first stop  at the corner of Constitution Square where there is a small, traditional bar where we’ll try Ribeiro white wine served in typical cuncas (ceramic bowls for drinking). We’ll pair that with local cheeses like Tetilla and canned seafood like the wine made by small-scale artisan producers.
  • Then passing Cathedral of Santa Maria de Vigo we’ll head to a vinoteca (tavern) that specialises in Galician wines. We’ll try a young, red wine that’s made of the Menica grape, accompanied with cured Spanish meats like jamón and chorizo.
  • Then more wondering through the old, granite cobbled streets close to the Port, it ´s off to our final stop to try the very best seafood Vigo has to offer! Freshly caught mussels or shellfish depending on what ´s been caught that day paired with the famous Albariño white wine from the D.O. Rias Baixas.
  • Then it’s time to burn off the calories and tell friends about the adventure! 
  • 03:15PM approx.: The tour will end at the last stop which right on the port of Vigo.

Reviews

Myself 3 friends were met by our guide Sean just outside the cruise terminal which was the perfect start to only what we can describe as a fantastic tour. The tour included a walk round the town with Sean a very friendly excellent guide pointing out all the places of interest and giving full informative details. I must mention that two of our party are not red wine or seafood lovers but this tour is far more than wine tapas. It delivered on every front and a water or coffee was offered instead of wine if preferred. If ever we found ourselves in this region again we would not hesitate to take this tour again. 10 out of 10 we all had a Great Time.
