Bus travel from Porto, Portugal to Santiago de Compostela, s

My friend and I (two older women) are taking a Uniworld river cruise on the Douro River, terminating in Porto, Portugal on Sunday, June 2, 2013.

We hope to travel from Porto, Portugal to Santiago de Compostela, Spain on Sunday, June 2, 2013. Although we know there are 2 trains a day (one at 7.55 am, the other in the evening) it is a long trip by train, and have been told that there is a bus service.

We would be grateful to learn what bus service is available from Porto to Santiago de Compostela, or any other reasonable ways to travel this route in a single day.

Thank you for considering my request.

Ann, My friend and I are taking the Viking Douro cruise next June. Though Viking does offer a 2 day add-on to Santiago, we want to stay at the Parador so we have to find our own way. I'd appreciate hearing what you found out about the bus schedule and tickets from Porto to Santiago de Compostela.

Thank you, Carolyn
