"I travel a lot but hands down this was my most memorable trip. Santiago de Compostela has an indescribable magic. My intention was to workout 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 trilled 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.

"An extraordinary experience indeed. My wife and I had the pleasure of a 10 day Trek through some of the most unique Portuguese Countryside and upgraded to the 'Superior Collection' (Parador Hotels), well worth it and more. Camino ways were flawless in their organization and attention to detail from our very first contact. We have only good things to say, in fact endless compliments in regards to CaminoWays Staff, Parador Hotels, meals (5 Star for sure), Trek route etc. We Canadians were very pleased. With great appreciation Rob & Michelle." Camino Portugues.

"Portuguese Way. The entire trip went without flaws. The hotels were great, particularly the three Paradores and the Torre do Rio in Caldas de Reis. Our suitcases were always picked up on time and they were always at the next hotel. I have already recommend your company to others."

The Camino Ways did an excellent job of ensuring that all of our needs were met. I was a first time traveler to Europe … I had no worries … details were taken care off… moreover the level of safety that I felt was paramount this definitely helped with the level of comfort that I was able to explore and feel. The rooms and meals were super in great locations definitely a great way to see and experience the culture. The directions for the trail of the Camino were superb as well. This trip exceeded all of my expectations … I am interested in doing another trip next year .. possible the English way …. I will not hesitate to work with the Camino Ways again… Oh yes… the hotels had respect for this company as well. Happy Trails”

The last section of the Portuguese Way starts in the cathedral town of Tui, in Galicia; separated from Portugal only by the River Minho and its iconic International Bridge. From Tui to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino trail takes pilgrims across tranquil woods, farmland and peaceful hamlets, as well as historic towns and cities.

On this section of the Portuguese Way you will reach the Atlantic coast in Arcade, a seaside town famous for its oyster festival; and the lovely city of Pontevedra with its classic Galician old town, superb architecture and lively pedestrian centre. Being in the heart of the Rías Baixas region, make sure you sample its famous white wine, Albariño. On your way to Santiago, you will also stop in Padrón, hometown of Galicia’s most acclaimed poet, Rosalía de Castro, and reputedly the place where St James first landed in Galicia.
