This was amazing experience. Diego is a very knowledgeable, kind and professional tour guide. We did the Ribeira Sacra Tour and I would recommend every single step of it- from the Monasterio of Santa Cristina, the boat tour on the Rio Sil, The Bodega Vella tasting experience to the wonderful lunch. His broad knowledge of history and his amusing personality made our trip fun and unique. I highly recommend it.

Experiencing Galicia with Verdant was like experiencing it with a friend. Diego was great. We had a rainy day, but he adjusted our schedule to really take advantage of the circumstances. During our day trip, we focused on the Ribeira Sacra area, but there are really so many options. Galicia is a place to spend a week, not a day. Verdant provided everything in their very reasonable price for this private tour, including an incredible lunch at a great restaurant. Awesome caldo! I'm going to return in the Fall and book our entire trip through Verdant. Can't say enough about them.

I am an experience traveler and in particular through Spain. Have used a diversity of organizations, from Road Scholar to private tours. This time I was traveling with my parents. Both not easy to please. The landscape, history, architecture and food where second to none. Even when the weather had its moments the trip was priceless and my guide "Diego" not only knowledgeable but quickly become a friend. He was so incredibly sweat and patient with my parents who because of age, needed some extra attention and help. I am planing my return and will ask Diego to be our guide again

My husband and I did a private tour with Diego of the Ribeira Sacra. It was a fantastic experience. From start to finish, Verdant Experiences were extremely professional and responsive. We had the option to tailor our tour if we desired (we wound up using the standard package, which was a great introduction to the area), and day of everything went very smoothly. Diego provided all sorts of interesting insights into the area, got some great photos of us, and overall led a great day. We would definitely schedule with them again for another experience when we are in Galicia again!

My husband & I had gone on a (tourist) bus tour of the Ribeira Sacra well over 20 years ago & were looking for something different this time around. Well, we found it: Verdant Experiences. In the morning Jordan picked us up at our hotel in his jeep. He is a wonderful, personable guide. There was easy conversation for the whole 11+ hours that we were with him. He took us to some places that a tour bus will never go. Absolutely loved the delicious lunch we had at Casa Grande de Cristosende. Jordan went out of his way to make sure that we had a great time & we really appreciated it. Next time we are in Ourense we hope to take another tour with Verdant Experiences.

If you do nothing else when in Galicia, you must visit the Ribeira Sacra wine region and Rio Sil with Jordan, from Verdant. Jordan is knowledgeable and passionate about Galicia and all it has to offer. We were able to meet with winemakers and sample world class wines, tour wine making operations, eat great local food, and make our way down the Sil River - all with breathtaking views throughout the entire day. To cap it off, Jordan is a great host, fun, and super organised. If a bus load of 50 on tour is not your thing, try Verdant. You will not be disappointed!

In mid-September 2019 my husband and I went on the Ribeira Sacra day tour with Verdant Experiences. Diego was our guide. The day couldn’t have been more special. We started with a picturesque morning river ride and wine tasting. We learned a good amount about the history of Ribeira Sacra and the valley we were travelling through. Diego took us to some beautiful viewing areas and walks through the hills, always including informational tidbits. His pride and enthusiasm was infectious! We stopped by two family-run wineries whose makers did a great job explaining their craft. Lunch was phenomenal, a perfect introduction to Galician gastronomy. It’s relatively simple in preparation, but highlights the freshness and quality of local, seasonal ingredients.

If you’re considering a tour with Verdant Experiences, stop considering and just make the reservation!
