    Upon arrival  you will be welcomed and escorted to a private vehicle and transferred to the culmination of the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage route, the Plaza del Obradoiro, the heart of Santiago de Compostela.

    You will check in the world’s oldest hotel. Situated in Santiago de Compostela’s main square and built in the late 15th century as a royal hospice for pilgrims visiting the shrine of St James in the cathedral next door, the Parador – a national monument – claims to be the oldest hotel in the world now turned  5-star hotel.

    The hotel is set around four exquisite arcaded and gargoyle-laden Renaissance and Gothic courtyards. There is also a plethora of fine religious art, tapestries and antique chests to admire in the plush sitting rooms and corridors, along with a quiet corner in which to lap up the atmosphere.

     You will have the rest of the evening at your leisure before you indulge yourself into the hotel signature restaurant “Restaurante dos Reis” in a historic space housed in what was once the stables for the Royal Hospital, where you can sample traditional Galician cuisine.

    Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the Galicia region, is Northern Spain’s most iconic city. This UNESCO Heritage Site is the final stop on the epic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail; its unique atmosphere, history and cobbled streets draw thousands of visitors each year.

    Our visit digs below its surface beauty, to unearth a vibrancy and flavour that few visitors get to experience.

    A private guide will take you on a walking culinary tour of the central farmers’ market where colours and aromas combine to create an intoxicating gastronomic experience. Here you will find only the most succulent fruit and vegetables, freshest seafood and the local delicacy, aged Galician blonde beef.

    After the visit, you will go on a sightseeing tour of Santiago de Compostela’s old town. You will discover a magical town, the culmination of the world-famous “Camino de Santiago”. Join hundreds of pilgrims at its famous gothic Cathedral and take part of a singular ceremony: “The Botafumeiro”.

    For lunch you will enjoy a signature restaurant where you can try the holy grail for meat lovers. Have you ever tried Spanish dry-aged Galician Blond Beef? Did you know that it is internationally acclaimed as the best beef in world?

    The distinctive character of the beef is a deep rich flavour, which is provided by the age of the cows and oxen at slaughter, when they are at least eight years old. Then, beef is dry-aged for around 100 days before serving. The high marbling is supported by the deep red colour of the beef and a distinctive thick yellow fat.

    You will have the rest of the evening at your leisure to relax at the hotel or explore the streets of the old town.

    Later on, you will be escorted by your guide to a Michelin-starred restaurant where you will experience a unique and highly personal dining experience that takes you behind the scenes. Taking your seat in the Chef’s kitchen, you’ll relish this Michelin-starred culinary treat. Enjoy a conversation with your Chef as he prepares and cooks your tailored tasting menu in front of you.

    Day 3

    This morning you will have time to relax at the hotel and enjoy a walk around the town centre. Later on, you will be met by your driver and escorted to a your vehicle for a private transfer to the airport for your return flight home.

    What’s not included? 

    Meals & Drinks at Restaurants – Why they are not included? We will guide you to spectacular restaurants and we will recommend the best food and drink they serve at each place according to your taste.

    We think that pre-booked meals & drinks lower the quality of our customer’s experience at these top restaurants where the Chef could recommend you something fresh from the day or this new creation he/she has just added to their menu. You will have the freedom to eat & drink anything from the restaurant’s menu at your own pace.  If you are in a mood for a long tasting menu or just a couple of a-la-carté dishes, that will be your choice.

    You will pay in local currency directly to the restaurants. If you wish, we could give you an estimation of how much a meal cost in each restaurant you will be eating during the tour.
