Mathias was an exceptional guide. Great knowledge of history friendly, great sense of humour and fun, very professional guide. We saw things and learnt things about the Cathedral and Santiago de Compostela we would never had access to without this tour. Highly recommend Mathias and this tour. Also got some great tips about local places to go. A Definite must while here.
