Sean P. O´Rourke (Co-Founder & Tour Manager)

 
Sean P. O´Rourke
 

 Sean is dedicated to designing and organizing unique tour packages for small groups, families, couples and individuals travelling to Spain and Portugal. Tours can be arranged fully escorted with an experienced guide for small groups and customized chauffeur driven tours, or detailed self-drive tours for the independent travellers.

Far from just reading out of tour guide books, Sean O’Rourke has immersed himself in his adopted country (Galicia, Spain) and truly wants you to understand and enjoy its culture. He personally guides their specialized small group historic, gourmet food & wine tours in Galicia.

Sean is well versed in the various topics covered on the tour such as Celtic Hill-forts and music, the religious pilgrimage to Santiago, Galician-Roman-Celtic history, wine making, wine tasting, Galician modern & traditional cuisine, etc.

Sean’s travels have taken him throughout Europe and Britain extensively. His interest into the Spanish culture has given him the ability to speak fluently in Spanish. Sean would be glad to translate and help with some basic vocabulary while on your vacation in Galicia, Spain.  One of Sean’s many pastimes is the study of Ancient Celtic history, Galicia and it’s connection to the other Celtic nations (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and Isle of Man) has been his latest project and would love to share with you all the legends and stories of Galicia. Sean is Canadian, but of Scottish & Irish roots and his wife Angie is Galician, their goal is to show visitors an insider’s point of view of “GALICIA, SPAIN’S HIDDEN CELTIC PARADISE”


HERE IS A COMMENT ABOUT GALICIA FROM SEAN:
“Galicia sure charmed my Celtic spirit and palate into coming back, after visiting my wife’s family vineyard one summer we decided to move to Galicia for good!! Now I am based here to welcome all visitors to this unique Celtic Land.”
