Can't find a taxi service?
We have several larger groups looking to reserve a taxi/van at the La Coruna port but we can't seem to find any companies via a google search. Since we are traveling in groups of 6 - 12 people we were hoping to secrue a van. Does anyone know of a company that we can email prior to our visit in September?
Thank you for your help,
Re: Can't find a taxi service?
I think you will find that 12 persons is the max for a small bus in Europe. After that you need a larger vehicle. The 12 seating will include the driver too!

Re: Can't find a taxi service?
Thank you for your replies. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but I am not able to get a web site by the link that is mentioned. Also the email address is sent back to me.
It is unbelievable how hard it is to line up transportation in Coruna. We have managed to easily line up taxis and tours from London to Rome on this trip but not in Coruna.
Thank you for trying,
Travel Tips for Coruña
The home of local football team Deportivo La Coruna is known as the Estadio de Riazor, i like football stadiums me so thought i better include my best piccy.
Success in the Champions League of late has allowed the club to develop a marvellous Stadium which sits almost on the beach in the centre of La Coruna.
Sheltered from the winds.The port and harbour.
The eastern end of the south facing bay has a fort no doubt built to protect the city from the marauding British. For it was from this harbour that the Spanish Armada set sail in 1588. The fleet had some 130 galleons, 10,000 sailors and 19,000 soldiers to attack the British and Britain. The Armada met up with the British fleet at Plymouth without a decisive result , the Armada continued sailing the English Channel and anchored near Calais where it met the invasion fleet from the Netherlands, the allies of the Spanish.
The battle continued but the larger Spanish vessels were attacked by fire boats and the faster British ships caused the rout of the Spanish fleet, the ships left afloat sailed back to Spain the long way around Scotland and Ireland. Storms around these coasts
caused further destruction.
It is reported that 76 Spanish Ships returned to port and 15,000 soldiers did not return..
The Avenida de la Marina borders the harbour and stretches towards the west end of the city. The glass enclosed balconies called solanas line the Avenue on the north but give way to business and commercial buildings all along the north side of the Avenue. The south is resplendant with parks, gardens and museums as well as the port and harbour.
