In Galicia, the Portuguese Camino trail takes you to forests, farmlands, and lovely historic villages and cities such as Pontevedra before taking you to magnificent Santiago de Compostela.
I was extremely pleased with the Caminoways , they were very efficient and have delivered more than my expectations. Our guide was excellent and was very sensitive eastwards our needs during the trip. Will definitely use their services if I decide to do the camino from a different route again
