I have just returned home after a holiday in Spain and Portugal, the highlight of which was a guided walk on the last 100km of the Via de la Plata. Eight hiking friends and I signed on with CaminoWays for the journey and I want to express my complete satisfaction with every detail of the planning and management of our time on the Camino. It was an experience I shall treasure always. Iago, our guide, deserves special mention. Always ready with interesting cultural insights, encouragement when needed and never betraying impatience with the slower walkers among us, his obvious pride in his native Galicia made him the perfect host for our group. He has earned my highest recommendation. Special appreciation, also, for the excellent welcoming and farewell dinners. They made a huge difference to my appreciation of Spanish – sorry, Galician! – cooking and were a welcome addition to the tasty but somewhat predictable diet of bar tapas.
