Mar de Ons Customer Reviews

  • "Wonderful Trip. Excellent Price."

    The island was beautiful, white sand, clear blue sea and beautiful trees. The Princess Cruise excursion was too expensive so I searched for ferries from Vigo. My one concern was the distance from the cruise ship to the ferry. I Emailed DF and within minutes received a very friendly reply informing me that it was a couple of minutes walk. We booked on line and paid £31 for two people. It would have cost us £122 had we gone with Princess - a saving of £91. We had a very enjoyable trip on the ferry and can thoroughly recommend Direct Ferries. Cannot comment on the catering, as we did not use it.

  • "Beautiful place"

    The trip over to the Cies Island on the ferry was excellent the ferry was fast and efficient. It costs far less than an excursion from a cruise ship. The island was beautiful and the weather good. The only downside was there wasn't enough time to enjoy the whole island, if they could extend the time ashore I would be willing to pay extra!
