When it comes to cruising, Vigo and La Coruna have become two of the most popular ports in Spain with many cruise lines like P & O, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean making Vigo or La Coruna one of their disembarking points. Nowadays, Ports of Ferrol and Villagarcia have been added to the list.
As an entry portal to Galicia, Vigo and Villagarcia is ideal with cities like Pontevedra and Santiago de Compostela only a relatively short distance away. Additionally, the famous Rias Biasas wine region, famed for Albarino wine, is on the doorstep. All told this means that porting at Vigo opens up an almost unlimited selection of visitor options for the cruiser. You can explore a medieval city like Santiago or Pontevedra, or delve into the culture and history of this important Spanish region. However, ports of La Coruna and Ferrol open up the Northern coast of Galicia. Wherever you dock we are there to service your needs.
To start with we are a tour company based in Pontevedra, Galicia (about 30 minutes from Vigo) and we have been organising and running tours in this region since 2005.
You will see numerous positive references to us on Cruise Critic and TripAdvisor, a couple of examples of which you can find using the following links:
