I know timing is of the essence because of having to consider that it is low tide when we get to the beach.

Cathedral beach tour
Maria, Jul 2020
It was a very enjoyable tour of the day to Lugo and Cathedral beach. It would have been a greater experience staying more time at the beach to really savor the place and to be able to get in the water. One suggestion is for the tour guides to have the proper mask in the face. I noticed our tour guide was constantly arranging his mask on his nose as it was sliding down. Also, it should be a fresh disposable mask every day as they are busy with big groups of people every day and they should be the example to make us feel safe. Thank you.
It could have been excellent except...

I was expecting more of Lugo(going inside the cathedral and walking around the wall)and spending more time at the Cathedral beach. We could have skipped the travel time and walking tour at Ribadeo. Since this trip was scheduled on a Sunday at the middle of the day, there was nothing much going on in terms of cultural encounters. On the other hand, Maria tried her very best to make it worthwhile. At least the Cathedral beach trip was really worth the time and travel. I know timing is of the essence because of having to consider that it is low tide when we get to the beach. And it would be helpful to indicate that return is after sundown.
Tour de Catedrales, Lugo
Maria, Jul 2020
Este tour hubiera sido perfecto si hubiéramos podido quedarnos en la playa de las catedrales de 2 a 3 horas en lugar de menos de una hora, para así poder disfrutar de la maravillosa playa y sus magníficas catedrales para fotografiar. Y..., ni qué decir tiene, de haber podido disfrutar de un buen chapuzón en el agua de temperatura perfecta. Nada que ver con el agua fría de las Rías Baixas (...y yo soy de Pontevedra)!! Con respecto al guía, estuvo genial su conocimiento y explicaciones constantes de todos los lugares a recorrer. Sólo un detalle que, en estos tiempos del Covid, me preocupó un poco. Y es referente a su mascarilla. Constantemente se le estaba cayendo de la nariz y tenía que colocarla en su lugar. Y es que era de un material de malla que de lavarlo tantas veces se había estirado. Pienso que es más apropiado que los guías que están continuamente con grupos de turistas utilizen mascarillas de usar y tirar cada 4 horas para así dar sensación de seguridad a cada miembro del grupo en el tour. Sumamente importante, sobretodo porque en Julio he visto el incremento de turistas cada semana en Santiago de Compostela. Y en Agosto el turismo tiende a aumentar. Gracias.
