There are a few longer travel days (up to 4-5 hours), but these give a great chance to soak in the Portuguese scenery and get to know your fellow travellers a little better.

Our Real Food Adventure - Galicia & Portugal trips score an average of 5 out of 5 based on 1 review in the last year.
This is a jam packed trip full of culture and food - you will leave stuffed, exhausted and happy. The included activities are well worth it (my favorite was our trip to the Douro Valley). Make room for lots of jamon iberico and white port. I also recommend getting in a few days early to have more time in Santiago de Compostela, you only really have the night there with the tour.
