Wow what an amazing experience Camino Ways provides! The Camino was very busy during our hike from St. Jean Pied de Port and there were several times we saw pilgrims unable to find lodging at their desired stopping place and having to walk in to the next village. It was such a comfort to have our accommodation booked through, all we had to do every day was walk and enjoy local wines and delicious food! Many Thanks!

CaminoWays was a great travel partner for our 500 mile Camino Frances walk. Our relationship with Camino Ways started almost a year before our trip when I went through their website to obtain a quote for the last leg of the Camino. Over the next several months, we had many questions which were promptly and efficiently answered by Camino Ways that helped us decide to walk the entire Camino with their excellent support. * Camino Ways staff promptly answered all of our questions - big and small. * The information on their website along with several telephone conversations helped set our expectations and ensure we were prepared for the trip. * The booking process was very easy. * The pre trip information was very helpful. * We had a couple of questions during our trip which were promptly answered. * Overall, we felt the price we paid was reasonable. * Customer Service excellent - these people care! Most important of all, and the reason I awarded 5 stars was: * OUR ROOMS WERE READY EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE 35 NIGHTS! * OUR LUGGAGE WAS WAITING FOR US EVERY SINGLE DAY WHEN WE ARRIVED! * CAMINO WAYS ARRANGEMENTS WERE SO RELIABLE THAT WE NEVER WORRIED! As with any experience there were a few minor areas of improvement. A couple of the nights, our lodging was far from the Camino and the directions included in our packet were not clear. A couple of days, because of the location of the lodging, the actual walk was longer than the information indicated, which made a long day feel much longer. We will definitely book with Camino Ways in the future and are recommending this organization to all of our friends and family. Good Job!

The Cluny Camino (GR76), Chemin de Cluny in French, is the Camino de Santiago route starting in the historical town of Cluny, in Burgundy, and joining the Le Puy Way in Le Puy en Velay. The full route from Cluny Abbey to Le Puy-en-Velay will take you over a distance of 315km and our tour lasts 16 nights. Before you start your journey, you should take time to explore Cluny and its famous medieval abbey.

From Burgundy, the Cluny Camino then crosses the Beaujolais hills winding its way through picturesque vineyards of the cote Roannaise, traversing through the Forez mountains and passing the breathtaking gorges of the Loire River, before finally reaching the spectacular volcanic landscapes of Velay. Your destination is the historic town of Le Puy en Velay, where you can join pilgrims on the Le Puy Camino.
