I am looking for recommendations for companies that do 1 day guided daytrips from Santiago to the coast including Finisterre. Anyone had any experience of these that they enjoyed and can remember the name of the tour company?

There is a company that does such a day trip. Covers Finisterre as well as other places to see along the coast.
Buy tickets close to the cathedral. Catch bus few blocks away. Left early morning and returned about 5 or 6 pm
Yes can catch the regular bus and return same day. But this does not go to all the interesting towns and places to see.
If you search on line (or when in Santiago, easy to find the company.
The office for tickets is close, very close, to the Post Office in Santiago.

Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route.

One thing you might consider is hiring a private taxi.
For around 100 euros you can get a taxi to take you to Finisterre, wait while you see the lighthouse and whatever else you want to see, then take you to Muxia (more beautiful to me) and wait while you have lunch there, then bring you back to Santiago. Share with another 2-3 pilgrims and it's less expensive than the bus that goes back and forth. In Spain you pay per taxi, not per person.

Hi, I walked to Finisterre the first time, took the public bus there and back the second time, and I did an organized day tour the third time, for which I can highly recommend this company:

We included the lunch option which was really good.

I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
I know that's not the answer to the OP, but for me personally taking a bus to either Fisterra or Muxia is a "crime" on the senses. Such a delightful walk...

I did it with Tour Galicia, we went to Finisterre, Muxia and lots more on a day trip for only 35 euro.The guide was excellent. I had a really good day out. It probably costs a bit more now!
Their address is
Rúa do Franco, 53, 15702 Santiago de Compostela

The bus tour is wonderful because they have someone who knows all about the area. They stop in Muxia and Finesterre for lunch and allow time to look around and visit the lighthouse area. There are young ladies all around the Cathedral handing out fliers.

Have done the day bus tour twice, and for 39€ it is a bargain and you learn so much history of Gallicia. Plus you get to go to a beautiful waterfall.

I was told that the waterfall at Ezaros is the only one in Europe that drops directly into the sea. It's certainly worth visiting on route.

If you don't have the time (or legs) to walk to Finisterre, a guided bus tour is an excellent day trip. My wife and I did this in April.
