1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Everything! The walk in the gorge in the pico mountains was the most awesome walk we have ever had, it was brilliant that this was the last day. The experience just got better each day.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Definitely go with this tour operator. The company is exceptionally well organised, taxi transfers with great drivers, delightful hotels and just the right amount of information. I wore walking boots which were a little too hard soled for the trip- walking shoes or trainers would put less demand on your feet at this time of year.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The use of local hotels and companies which transfer many bags are definitely good for the local economy and the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Outstanding

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Walking the Camino in the mountains from o’ Cebreiro above the early morning mist in the valleys below. The peaceful forests trails and little villages en route. The peregrino mass at Santiago cathedral. Etc etc…

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared to be very sociable! There are so many decent people to chat with on the Camino and everyone’s got a story to tell. A good pair of boots/ shoes . Compide blister plasters, lightweight clothes, sun cream.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely as all albergues, hotels and hostels were run by local people. Walking vacations probably have the least impact on the environment!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

5 stars. The tour operator gave really excellent, knowledgeable and friendly service. Would definitely recommend them.
