"If you ever need a friendly English-speaking taxista in Santiago de Compostela or to organise a transfer in Galicia, I highly recommend giving José Manuel a call. I believe anyone in Santiago who has dealt with him can only speak highly of his services. He will go the extra mile to help out, is punctual, speaks perfect English, knowledgeable about the region and all in all is a great representative of the famous Galician hospitality."
"We’ve been working with José Manuel for two years now and he’s proved to be a real asset, always exceeding our expectations and offering much more than a simple taxi transfer. Our only regret is that we didn’t find him sooner!"

"Walks in Spain have been using the services of Jose Manuel Caneda for a number of years and have received some very positive comments from their clients. Jose Manuel is an English/Spanish speaking taxi service offering regular taxi trips in the Santiago area and also offers transfers to Finisterre and Muxia. His knowledge of the area is excellent and with his well mannered nature and pleasant conversation we can recommend Jose Manuel to anyone wanting to do a guided tour to Finisterre or anywhere in the area."
"Don't be afraid to pick Jose's brains, in english of course, he has a vast knowlege about Santiago de Compostela and places to visit in Galicia"
"In June I had to meet 4 peregrinos in el Ferrol for the start of our ‘Caracoles’ group walk to Santiago on the Camino Ingles. I contacted Jose Manuel at Santiago Compostela Taxi 24. He collected them on time and along the way to Ferrol he told them about the various villages and places they passed through. My husband said that it was like having their own tour guide! We have since recommended him to our amaWalkers Group Leaders for trips to Finisterre and he has offered a great service to them. Thank you Jose Manuel!"
"Jose Manuel offers an excellent service to our Canadian clients. He spoke excellent English and as a good Galician he is proud of the Camino de Santiago and the history along the way. Once, he wrote down a huge list of local restaurants, wine recommendations and unique spots for our customers. All we can say is that he is outstanding. We totally appreciate his professional work and his friendly behaviour."
"We would highly recommend Jose Manuel. He provides an efficient and professional service, always being very polite and friendly."
"My first meeting with José Manuel Caneda was 28th of august 2008. One day before I arrived in Santiago de Compostela and finished my camino. At the airport I wanted to change my flight ticket back to Germany. So I called for a taxi and José appeared. He was absolutly fit in english, so we could talk fluently. Next day he drove me to Finisterre and back again after 2 hours. The price was more than fair!! José was an absolutly cautious driver with his clean and good looking taxi. 2010 I returned with my wife Rose to Santiago and José was waiting for more than 1 hour at the airport because it was terrible storming and raining. The plane nearly crashed by touching the ground. We stayed some days and again José brought us to Finisterre. He also he arranged for us a rent car. In 2011 I was lucky to survive an accident with my bike. As a real "peregrino" I returned to the camino to light some candels . I wanted to say " muchas gracias" to Hl. Jakobus. And again I met José taking me to León. But the very best happend in 2013. I arrived with 2 other pilgrims and José drove us to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the pyrenees. It was nearly uncredible that he did this, coming from Santiago!
Summary: José Manuel Caneda is one of the best taxi driver I ever met: safe, responsible, calm, perfect in english with an excellent car.
About my pilgrimages during the last years I wrote 2 books in which José is named.
2010: Den Jakobsweg mit dem Mountainbike erleben.
2014: ...und wieder war der Weg das Ziel."
"My first Camino I contested in 2008 finishing in Santiago de Compostella, and it was here that I learned to know and appreciate José. He took me with his taxi to Cap fisterra. On the way he gave me a lot of interesting information concerning the landscape as well as the people and the history of the region we passed. He's a save driver and a really nice guy. And what is likely to be important for many pilgrims probably, in moments we need some minutes for ourselves José waits patiently so the trip doesn´t become hasty. Meanwhile, I had two more times on the Camino, and who was probably my taxi driver in and around SdC?! Thank you for everything José :-) "
