Hola, about to arrive in Santiago soon by CamNor and have only one afternoon to visit the end of the world lighthouse Faro de Finsterre. Any tour services that do just that or should I get a private car? I don't think I have time for a bus as I want to attend the noon mass before I go.

Will you be back to walk any other Camino?
If yes then I would wait for that time and walk from SdC to Fisterra.

Otherwise someone else will chime in with some idea.

Last June we went to Finisterre by taxi, it cost 90 Euros, we shared between 4 of us, so it worked out well - faster and cheaper than by bus.

Our Albergue advertised a tour on the notice board yesterday for I think 20€ to Finisterre. First day walking to Finisterre today!

Not to be pedantic, but Uber doesn’t appear to be in Santiago. I’ve used Uber in other cities in Europe and find it to be a great option, when available.

You are correct according to a quick look at the Uber site but I would swear I saw their logo on some cars when I was there last summer. My bad.

@biarritzdon It's quite possible that they had it then, I know there has been a lot of talk/action in Spain against these types of services in order to support the local taxi companies. I was really excited at the thought of Uber in Santiago since I'm always having to get a car because places I want to go (off camino) are inevitably just far enough that I need a car, but then most of the time I'm just in the center, so Uber would be perfect. Well, I'll keep an eye out next time I'm there!
