Sara R, Australia.

Sarah and her partner and their baby walked 6 days on the camino in April, 2010.

“The trip was fantastic and the places we stopped worked out very well – perfect walking distances with a 13.5kg baby in pack (15.5kg in total). We very much enjoyed our stay and your choices of accommodation were great.We were blessed with great weather and have some amazing to pics to remind us of the journey – a highlight was the tour of the monastery in Samos – amazing thanks for the tip. Thanks so much for taking the time to help us I will certainly recommend your business to anyone planning a walk in Spain”

 

Barry & Cheryl M. Welland from Canada

“We have travelled twice with Garry and had great hiking with wonderful accomodations both times.

The first trip was in 2008 on the Camino Frances…highlights of the camino.  We enjoyed it so much that six of us had Garry plan a guided trip from Porto to Santiago in October 2009. That trip had everything…beautiful scenery, great accomodation and of course Garry’s ready wit to entertain!   He took care of our every care and concern…and we got our compostelas!!!”

 

Henee L, CA, USA

“I walked as a solo, female hiker for a week of the Camino, from Sarria to Santiago, in July 2009.

Beforehand, I was a little worried about hiking as a single woman, but with all of Garry’s hotel set-ups, baggage transfers, detailed maps, instructions, suggestions, and daily phone check-ups, I felt perfectly safe and taken care of the whole time. There were other hikers who couldn’t find places to spend the night, especially near Santiago, but I always had the best accommodations and everything I needed. Out of all of my world travels, I can honestly say that this one of the best trips I’ve ever taken, and I have recommended you to all of my friends. I miss it a lot and would go back in a heartbeat!”

 

Phyllis and Lloyd, Toronto, Canada

Phyllis and Lloyd did my self guided Pilgrimage from Leon to Santiago in September, 2008.

“… this Spanish trip was one of the best we’ve ever had, and Lloyd agreed. Everything went very smoothly and the accommodation you selected for us was excellent, both with respect to location and proximity to tourist sites, and for cleanliness, comfort and safety. We followed through and ate at several of the restaurants you suggested and … (it) worked out well for us. For us the pacing was excellent as it was leisurely and unhurried. The maps were a big help in getting us quickly oriented for where we wanted to go. We didn’t have to waste time searching for a tourist office to get directions so that saved us time.”

 

Brid, Canada

Brid and three friends walked unguided from St Jean Pied de Port to Estella during a week in July 2007.

“Everything worked out just fine and thank you so much for all your help and support. We loved every minute of it even if the legs were challenged at times!! We’re definitely going to stay in training and return to do some more next year so we’ll be in touch with you again.
Many thanks and regards, Brid”

 

Mary S., Limerick, Ireland

Mary walked from Sarria to Santiago in June 2005 using my service of organizing hotels, transport and bag transfers:

“We were delighted with the whole experience and really impressed by how efficiently you had managed all the arrangements. It was such a bonus not to have to worry about finding accommodation or transporting our bags from place to place. In all cases, our bags were waiting for us on our arrival. The countryside was lovely,very varied and quite different from my limited knowledge of Spain. We met very interesting people all along the way and heard some wonderful stories. I hope I can use your services again and I’ll certainly highly recommend you to anyone I know who’s interested in a similar arrangement. Many thanks for making the experience so enjoyable.”
