Sean is well versed in the various topics covered on the tour such as Celtic Hill-forts and music, the religious pilgrimage to Santiago or also know as the Camino de Santiago, Galician-Roman-Celtic history, winemaking, wine tasting, Galician modern & traditional cuisine, etc.
Sean’s travels have taken him throughout Europe and Britain extensively. His interest into the Spanish culture has given him the ability to speak fluently in Spanish. Sean would be glad to translate and help with some basic vocabulary while on your vacation in Galicia, Spain. One of Sean’s many pastimes is the study of ancient Celtic history, Galicia and it’s the connection to the other Celtic nations (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and Isle of Man) has been his latest project and would love to share with you all the legends and stories of Galicia. Sean is Canadian, but of Scottish & Irish roots and his wife Angie is Galician, their goal is to show visitors an insider’s point of view of “GALICIA, SPAIN’S HIDDEN CELTIC PARADISE”
What I specialize in…
One of the hardest things to get right when visiting a foreign country is picking the best food and wines just like the locals do. Searching for reviews over the web can help to find great foodie spots, but does this really give you the same knowledge as a local Eating expert that has eaten and drank his way across the country trying all types of food & wines?
