"Had a fabulous 10 days doing the Camino Frances with Camino ways. We opted for "easy camino' averaging 10-15kms a day, staying in superior accommodation and having our luggage moved from place to place. The administration and advice from Camino ways was brilliant in advance of the tour. The organisation on the tour was fantastic - our transport was as advised, our bags always arrived. The accommodation was lovely rural, away from it all renovated manor houses and farm houses - all slightly quirky and beautifully clean and modern"

"I want to tell you how perfect everything was throughout my 5 days of relative easy walking on the French camino. I’m in my late 70s and certainly not a long-distance walker, but you arranged a walk that was possible for me, and I enjoyed every minute (except for the uphill patches!). I had been a little anxious about how baggage transfer would work, but it did work, and most efficiently. My bag was always at its destination waiting for me. And each hotel was a treat, truly — a comfort and pleasure at day’s end — super clean, attractive, welcoming. After the first hard day of walking 14 km I got into the swing of it and especially enjoyed impromptu chats with other pilgrims as we passed on the trail or lodged together in hotels. I always knew you were there if I needed emergency help just as you had been all through the process of signing on and getting ready."

Camino, best trip of my life! "I travel a lot but hands down this was my most memorable trip. Santiago de Compostela has indescribable magic. My intention was to work out and see new frontiers. The Camino had something else in mind for me. I learned a great deal more about myself and came back home transformed and with a sense of peace, happiness and well being. My journey was super comfortable and Camino Ways was excellent in preparing my hotel stays. I had to make some minor adjustments during my Camino and the staff at Camino Ways was very helpful and prompt in addressing my needs. FYI my friend with whom I walked the Camino paid double and got pretty much the same thing I did! I was thrilled to have obtained a good price for a first-class trip. The top-rated Parador Hotels along the way were a treat for my tired body. I highly recommend doing the Camino and if you don't want to stay in hostels and prefer a little bit more comfort and great meals, Camino Ways is the way to go. Thank you Camino Ways for being part of the best trip of my life!" Alma walked the Camino Portugues.

A very cheesy headline I know but it is true; I have been waiting to do el Camino for years. Camino Ways delivered everything they promised and was very well organized, All the hotel check-ins were smooth, I was always expected and I loved their choices as well: charming hotels that reflected the countryside and character of the provinces. I did my pilgrimage by bike; this is the 2nd part of the trip I would like to thank Camino Ways for--it too was as promised and my high-quality mountain bike sturdy steed did 800km (not counting getting lost but that was hardly the bike's fault) with only 1 flat tire. I chose the option to have my luggage transported daily and of course, this went off without a hitch as well. I had a couple of glitches of my own devising (forgot documents at the previous locale, unable to access the Internet to pay bills etc and the 24/7 helpline fixed me up quickly. Go Camino Ways!!
